This is the first report of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstructions SIGIR Lessons Learned Initiative LLI. The LLI is designed to enhance ongoing efforts in Iraq as well as to inform future U.S. reconstruction and stabilization planning and programs. The initiative focuses on three key subject areas 1 Human Capital Management, 2 Contracting, and 3 Program and Project Management. In each subject area, SIGIR gathers information through research and interviews, collating and distilling the results into a white paper. Each white paper is then reviewed by a panel of experts that evaluates the findings and makes recommendations. On September 20, 2005, SIGIR conducted its first Lessons Learned Forum, which focused on human capital management. The forum culminated months of work on the range of personnel issues that have emerged during the Iraq reconstruction enterprise. Much of the data SIGIR developed was derived from interviews with personnel who had first-hand experience in Iraq reconstruction human resource matters. SIGIR gathered more than 30 experts drawn from government, industry, and academia, including many who served in Iraq, for a full-day forum at Johns Hopkins University in Washington, D.C., to evaluate the findings and provide recommendations. This report presents those findings and recommendations.
