Abstract:

The Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction is assessing projects funded under the Commanders Emergency Response Program to provide real-time relief and reconstruction information to interested parties to enable appropriate action, when warranted. The overall objectives were to determine whether completed projects complied with the terms of their contracts and task orders and to evaluate the effectiveness of the monitoring and controls exercised by administrative quality assurance and contract officers. The Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction conducted this project assessment in accordance with the Quality Standards for Inspections issued by the Presidents Council on Integrity and Efficiency. The assessment team included an engineerinspector and two auditorsinspectors. The objective of the contract was to restore two lift stations in the Ghazaliyah area to designed operational capacity. On September 26, 2006, Delivery Order 0006 of contract W917BG-06-D-0007 was issued to a local contractor for 328,775. The repair and rehabilitation work was to include replacement and maintenance of generators and pumps at each site, necessary electrical and control work, and limited architectural renovations. The two lift stations covered by this contract were the Al Ghazaliyah G-6 and G-7 sewage lift stations. The Notice to Proceed was issued on November 7, 2006, with a period of performance to complete the project in 150 days. The delivery order was terminated on 10 November 2007 because a Change in Security Conditions occurred at both sewage lift stations, which prohibited the contractor from completing the projects.
