Abstract:

This is SIGARs quarterly report to the Congress on the U.S. reconstruction effort in Afghanistan incompliance with the statutory requirements of Section 1229 of P.L. 110-181. This report documents SIGARs activities and updates the status of reconstruction programs since our April 30, 2011 report. The Congress has provided nearly 72.7 billion to rebuild Afghanistan since 2002. Earlier this year, SIGAR adjusted its audit and investigations plans and implemented a much more aggressive strategy to provide comprehensive oversight of these funds. As a result, this quarter SIGAR can report a number of accomplishments, including potential savings and several arrests identified up to 58.5 million in contractor refunds not returned to the U.S. government identified 1.6 million in expired, unused funds that have now been returned to the U.S. Treasury supported five arrests, including a U.S. military reserve officer charged with soliciting more than 1 million in bribes for reconstruction contracts referred six individuals and contractors for suspension and debarment.
