BIO:

Mr Stephen J. Pitotti is the Executive Director, Acquisition Governance and Oversight, for the Office of Acquisition. He is responsible for formulation, planning, and implementation of asset acquisition programs and procurements that support CBP activities nationwide.

Mr Pitotti joined Customs and Border Protection in 2006. He has served as the Deputy Assistant Commissioner for the Office of Technology Innovation and Acquisition, and the Deputy Assistant Commissioner for the Office of Training and Development where he was responsible for centralized leadership and direction of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) training programs. Prior to that assignment he was Executive Director, Test, Training, Safety and Standards in the Office of Air and Marine Operations where he was the senior safety advisor, technical advisor, and authority for aviation and marine training, safety, and standardization. He created a vibrant operational flight test function for Customs and Border Protection--the benchmark in DHS. He supervised aviation training through the National Aviation Training Center, marine training through the National Marine Training Center, and established a Directorate of Air and Marine Standardization and Evaluation in 2007. He enabled a vigorous developmental training program for senior OAM personnel preparing them for more exacting and demanding roles in the future of Homeland Defense. Under his oversight, the technical and professional support structures of test, training, safety, and standards were matured and tested to make Air and Marine a self-sustaining professional organization.

Before joining Customs and Border Protection, Mr. Pitotti spent a career as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Air Force. Colonel Pitotti is a graduate of the United States Air Force Test Pilot School at Edwards Air Force Base, California. He has had many assignments as an experimental test pilot in Florida, California, and Georgia, primarily in fighter aircraft. He has also served with the United States Army at Camp Casey, Korea and had two tours at the Pentagon. He was Commander, 339th Flight Test Squadron, Robins AFB, Georgia conducting flight test operations on F-15, C-130, C-141, and C-5 aircraft. He was the Vice Commander, 46th Test Wing, Eglin AFB, Florida where he was responsible for the day to day developmental testing of air armaments and command and control systems at facilities in three states. In his last military assignment, Colonel Pitotti was Division Chief, Weapons Technology Control Division,

Deputy Director for International Negotiations, Directorate of Strategic Plans and Policy (J5) on the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In this capacity, he formulated and coordinated policy for the JCS for non-proliferation treaties and protocols, National Disclosure Policy, export licenses, as well as security assistance programs.

Between his Air Force career and joining CBP, Mr. Pitotti served as the Special Assistant for Program Integration for the Deputy Associate Administrator for International Space Station and Space Shuttle at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). While at NASA, he assisted in formulating policy, controlling the budget, and providing management oversight for ISS/SSP programs and was intimately involved in the return of the Space Shuttle to flight following the loss of Columbia.
