In a June 2010 report, the Senate Committee on Armed Services expressed concern about problems with the ANP training program, including lapses in oversight and management of the contract that were identified by the DOD and State Inspectors General. In January 2011, Congress required that we report on the use of U.S. government USG personnel, rather than contractor personnel, to train the ANP. In response, this report describes 1 the roles and responsibilities of USG and contractor personnel in the ANP training program 2 the extent to which DOD has assessed a the advantages and disadvantages of using USG or contractor personnel for ANP training and b the potential impact of transferring responsibilities for ANP training from contractor to USG personnel and 3 lessons learned from other DOD foreign police training programs that directly relate to the advantages and disadvantages of using USG personnel or contractors.
