Abstract:

We determined whether the Department of Defense DoD obligated 1.3 billion from the Afghanistan Security Forces Fund in accordance with legal provisions for assisting the Afghan Security Forces and with appropriations law. We validated that DoD obligated 1.3 billion in accordance with legal provisions Public Laws 109-13, 109-234, and 109-289 to assist the Afghan Security Forces. These three public laws make funds available to the Secretary of Defense or the Secretarys designee currently, the Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan CSTC-A to provide equipment, services, construction, and other assistance to the Afghan National Army and the Afghan National Police, the two forces that form the Afghan Security Forces. Six DoD commands obligated the 1.3 billion primarily using contracts with commercial vendors or military interdepartmental purchase requests that complied with appropriations law.
