The Procurement Collusion Strike Force (PCSF) leads a coordinated national response to combat antitrust crimes and related schemes in government procurement, grant, and program funding at all levels of government-Federal, state, and local. The PCSF is comprised of the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, multiple U.S. Attorneys' Offices around the country, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Inspectors General for multiple Federal agencies.
The PCSF is committed to working with the Inspectors General of agencies receiving Federal funds, as well as government procurement officials, to train individuals at all levels of the funding process to better deter and detect antitrust crimes affecting government procurement, grant, and program funding.
