Abstract:

This report discusses management of the Primary Healthcare Centers PHC construction project in response to a request by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Gulf Region Division GRD and the U.S. Ambassador. This report is a follow on to correspondence on this subject provided by the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction in December 2005. Introduction. On March 25, 2004, contract W914NS-04-D-0006, a cost-plus type contract, was awarded to Parsons Delaware, Inc. Task orders 4, 11, and 12 contracted for the construction of 150 PHCs throughout Iraq. The total definitized cost of the construction was 103,538,411. In addition, the task orders provided for the purchase and installation of medical and dental equipment for each center. The total definitized cost of the equipment was 69,115,742. The contract also had an administrative task order, task order 7, to cover indirect costs of projects under the contract. The total definitized cost of task order 7 was 110,000,0001. This report addresses the combined definitized cost on this contract of about 243,000,000 associated with the 150 PHCs. Objectives. The objectives of the audit were to determine if the contractor was in compliance with the terms of the contract or task orders and whether the government representatives were complying with general legislative and regulatory guidance concerning contract administration and financial management. We also evaluated the effectiveness of the monitoring and controls in place by administrative contract officers.
