Abstract:

We determined whether the Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment AFCEE and the Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan CSTC-A could account for real property construction purchased to support the Afghanistan National Army ANA. AFCEE provided contracting services to CSTC-A, who used Afghanistan Security Forces ASF funding to construct a variety of buildings such as office buildings, barracks, airport taxiways and hangars, and various other facilities. We also determined whether CSTC-A properly transferred the real property to the ANA after the construction was complete. We validated the accountability of ASF-funded real property construction as listed on contracts awarded by AFCEE at the direction of CSTC-A. We determined that AFCEE and CSTC-A maintained sufficient documentation and records to track accountability of real property constructed to support the ANA. However, CSTC-A did not have a formal process in place to transfer real property to the ANA. We recommend that the Commander, CSTC-A, develop and implement standard operating procedures for the transfer of real property to the ANA. The standard operating procedures should include procedures for preparing formal asset transfer letters and, when applicable, documenting the ANA refusals to sign for completed real property. In addition, we recommend that the Commander, CSTC-A, develop and implement guidance covering the transfer of real property management to the ANA. Transfer of property management to the ANA includes responsibility for both the operation and maintenance of facilities and for monitoring the real property management system CSTC-A uses to manage real property on behalf of the ANA.
