Abstract:

Recently, a congressional committee raised concerns that a significant amount of U.S.- appropriated money from the Iraq Security Forces Fund ISFF continues to be spent on infrastructure projects related to developing the Iraqi Security Forces and that the Government of Iraq GOI should shoulder more of the financial burden for infrastructure development. This issue gained particular attention when the Department of Defense DoD proposed to realign 590 million of FY 2007 ISFF to infrastructure development from other ISFF accounts. Because of the congressional interest, the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction SIGIR evaluated the status of U.S.-appropriated ISFF used for infrastructure projects in Iraq, including 1 factors affecting program execution and use of these funds, and 2 spending plans for unobligated funds and unliquidated obligations and factors indicating and affecting a shift toward greater use of Iraqi funding to support Iraqi Security Forces infrastructure projects.
