Abstract:

This report examines the capacity of the Combined Security Transition Command - Afghanistan CSTC-A to oversee contracting issues such as monitoring contractor performance. This Command, in conjunction with the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and U.S. coalition planners, is the Department of Defense Command responsible for the management of U.S. programs to develop capable Afghanistan National Security Forces. As part of this management responsibility, we believe that CSTC-A needs to provide effective oversight of contractor performance. This is important to ensure that funds are being used as intended to support the mission and to protect the taxpayers interests. We are recommending that the Commanding General, CSTC-A, strengthen the Commands contracting oversight capabilities. CSTC-A concurred with our recommendation and said that it is acting to establish proper contract management and oversight processes.
