Abstract:

Congress has appropriated nearly 93 billion since 2002 to rebuild Afghanistan. For FY14, State and the U.S. Agency for International Development USAID have requested an additional 3.4 billion--more than is requested for any other nation. If approved, this request will bring the total amount of appropriated funds that remain to be spent in Afghanistan to more than 20 billion. It is the mission of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction SIGAR to ensure that these funds are spent as effectively and efficiently as possible and that they are protected from waste, fraud, and abuse.
