Our history

Joseph A. DeLuca Advisory & Consulting Services (“DLA”) is a boutique, independent third-party monitor with extensive experience auditing, investigating, and reviewing government procedures and operations to ensure best practices are in place and complied with. Joseph DeLuca launched DLA in July of 2018 to redefine what is possible with a client-focused investigative and advisory firm. Building off decades of experience, our team has tackled problems ranging from isolated misconduct in agencies and institutions to problems that were caused by systemic breakdowns. This is accomplished by taking on a role akin to a Private Inspector General, a concept pioneered by DLA’s founder Joseph DeLuca at Thacher Associates in the late 1990s, to deploy a multi-disciplinary approach to assignments by utilizing investigators, forensic accountants and legal experts to offer best practices for clients in need of risk management, compliance, and due diligence. 

DLA will analyze policies and procedures, recommend reforms when necessary, perform spot audits and provide the necessary oversight to ensure policies and procedures are implemented and effective, transparency is promoted, and most importantly to ensure best practices are in place that will help prevent fraud, waste, and abuse. 

Practitioner-owned and purposefully small, our independent, multidisciplinary team is uniquely client-focused and cost-effective. DLA provides a full spectrum of state-of-the-art services to protect and enhance your reputation and bottom line. Our team’s expansive collective background spans both the public and private sectors, from high-worth individuals to small businesses to Fortune 500 companies to multi-billion dollar projects.  DLA’s team has assisted local and state governments respond to disasters and navigate the complicated federal funding streams, programming, and associated regulatory framework including the City of New York, Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, New York State Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery, State of New Jersey, and Metropolitan Transit Authority. With this unmatched history as our foundation, the DLA team will build a custom approach to best serve you.
