Abstract:

I am pleased to submit to the Congress, Secretary Rice, Secretary Rumsfeld, and the American people, the 11th Quarterly Report from the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction SIGIR. SIGIRs mission, in simple terms, is to account for U.S. taxpayer funds invested in the reconstruction of Iraq. As this Report indicates, that accounting reveals a mixed story, with many successful projects completed while others fall short. This story underscores the importance of ensuring that the next phase of Iraq reconstruction stays on track. SIGIR remains committed to doing its part toward achieving that goal. Of significant note, the Department of State continues to provide exemplary support for the reconstruction mission and SIGIRs oversight of it. The Iraq relief and reconstruction program has entered the fourth quarter in this Year of Transition. Section 1 of the Report contains SIGIRs observations about this development, emphasizing several urgent matters that require action. Section 2 of this Report provides SIGIRs sector-by-sector analyses of reconstruction Section 3 summarizes SIGIRs audits, inspections, and investigations and Section 4 provides reporting on other agencies oversight activity.
