Abstract:

SIGAR took steps this quarter to boost our work tempo and sharpen our focus on the most important programs and problems. We issued 11 written products--the most ever in a quarter since SIGARs formation. These products include audits, inspections, Congressional testimony, alert letters, and an investigative report to implementing agencies. Our goal to inform U.S. government agencies and Congress in real time about problems that either threaten reconstruction progress or that endanger American lives and expose taxpayer dollars to waste, fraud, and abuse. Our audit, inspection, and investigative work this quarter was concentrated in three critical areas the logistics capability of the Afghan National Army ANA the construction quality and sustainability of Afghan security force facilities and the use of suspensions and debarments to prevent poorly performing and corrupt contractors, including those tied to insurgent and terrorist networks, from winning U.S.-funded reconstruction contracts.
