Former CIA IG David Buckley to Lead KPMG’s Forensic Practice; William Phillips Comments

KPMGlogoDavid Buckley, formerly inspector general at the CIA, has joined KPMG LLP as managing director of forensic advisory services.

He will be responsible for the auditing firm’s investigative and integrity advisory services to civilian agencies, with focus on fraud risk assessments, compliance and ethics program development and integrity monitoring, KPMG said Monday.

William Phillips, principal in charge of KPMG’s federal advisory services, said Buckley’s background in independent oversight, internal controls and internal security “are invaluable to these clients as they seek to manage these risks.”

As inspector general for the CIA between October 2010 and January 2015, Buckley led CIA’s internal investigations of fraud, waste, abuse and improper activities.

He also handled audit and inspection programs intended to evaluate and mitigate risk throughout the agency.

Prior to joining the agency, Buckley served as staff director for the minority, permanent select committee on intelligence for the House of Representatives and as chief investigator for the Senate permanent subcommittee on investigations.

He also held investigative and leadership roles within the inspector general offices for tax administration at the Treasury Department, as well as for the Defense Department and the General Accounting Office’s office of special investigations.

Buckley was previously a consultant to federal national security clients at Deloitte.
