Abstract:

In September 2010, Joint Task Force Kabul, within U.S. Forces Afghanistan, awarded a 160,000 Commanders Emergency Response Program CERP contract to Zwakman Nabizai Construction Company. The contract involved building a medical clinic in the village of Qala-I-Muslim, Kabul province. As part of its inspection program, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction SIGAR conducted a site inspection at the facility to determine whether construction was completed in accordance with contract requirements and applicable construction standards, and whether facilities were being used as intended and sustained. SIGAR reviewed available contract documents to prepare for its site inspection on January 23, 2013. Based on limited project documentation, SIGAR was unable to review technical specifications, design submittals, geotechnical reports, and quality assurance reports. SIGAR conducted its work in Kabul province, Afghanistan from September 2012 through March 2013, in accordance with Quality Standards for Inspection and Evaluation published by the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency.
