Scott served as a Peace Corps volunteer in St. Lucia, West Indies. He is a graduate of the FBI Academy and served as a Special Agent in the New Orleans Office where he specialized in white-collar criminal investigations. Scott transferred to the Office of the Inspector General for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID/OIG) where he completed 16 years of service conducting both criminal and civil investigations.
As a Special Agent with USAID/OIG, he served two four-year assignments in Cairo, Egypt. During his tours in Egypt, Scott, along with his colleagues, worked on an antitrust bid-rigging investigation regarding USAID-financed sewer contracts in Egypt that resulted in over $300 million in civil and criminal fines. He also started a complex cost-shifting investigation that ultimately led to three criminal convictions and approximately $70 million in restitution to the United States government. To date, this is the largest single recovery from any U.S. government contractor working in Iraq or Afghanistan.
After leaving government service, Scott spent 10 years conducting internal and external investigations for Saudi Aramco in Saudi Arabia. Saudi Aramco is Saudi Arabia’s national oil company and the largest company in the world. One investigation, which included Saudi colleagues, uncovered the diversion of approximately 300,000 liters of oil per day. This oil, with a market value of over $90 million, was destined for a power plant but ended up on the black market.
During his time with the public and private sectors and his 31 years of investigative experience, Scott has worked on investigations that led to employee dismissals, monetary recoveries and the debarment of numerous contractors.
