I am pleased to present this 29th Quarterly Report to the United States Congress and the Secretaries of State and Defense. The 61.45 billion U.S. reconstruction program in Iraq is undergoing its most significant transition since inception eight years ago. Of the many changes that will occur in the balance of 2011, the most momentous will be the departure of all U.S. troops by December 31. This historic event will signal the completion of the civilianizing of the U.S. reconstruction program. SIGIR published six audits this quarter, including a review of how DoS and the U.S. Agency for International Development USAID managed Quick Response Fund monies, totaling more than 250 million, determining that, while USAID had good management controls in place over its part of the program, DoS lacked sufficient documentation an audit of USAIDs oversight of the Cooperative Housing Foundations management of the Community Action Program, finding that the contractor performed well, but USAID relied too greatly on outside sources for information about project implementation and results a report concluding that USAID has implemented all but two of SIGIRs previous findings audits finding that USACEs Gulf Region District effectively monitored its private security contractor and used appropriate criteria in determining whether to recommend completion of its remaining projects by the end of 2011.
