Abstract:

This report is the second in a series of reports addressing DoD contracts for countermine and improvised explosive device IED defeat systems used in Iraq and Afghanistan. The overall audit objective was to determine whether DoD procurement efforts for countermine and improvised explosive device defeat systems used in Iraq and Afghanistan were developed, awarded, and managed in accordance with Federal and Defense acquisition regulations. Specifically, we determined whether the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization JIEDDO and Army procurement efforts for the Interrogation Arm IA used on Husky and RG-31 vehicles in Iraq and Afghanistan were contracted and managed in accordance with Federal and Defense acquisition regulations. We did not review the IA development. We focused primarily on the Army contracting and management of the IA acquisition initiative. See Appendix A for a discussion of our scope and methodology and prior coverage related to the audit objectives.
