Abstract:

I am pleased to present the Department of Defense Inspector General Semiannual Report to Congress for the reporting period April 1 through September 30, 2012. We are dedicated to detecting and preventing fraud, waste, and abuse while improving the effectiveness of DoD programs and operations. We issued 79 reports that identified 2.8 billion in potential monetary benefits during this reporting period. The Defense Criminal Investigative Service, working closely with our counterpart law enforcement agencies, conducted investigations that resulted in 72 arrests, 167 criminal convictions, 37 suspensions, and 136 debarments, generating a return of 3.3 billion to the U.S. government. The Defense Hotline handled 12,201 contacts. Of special concern are some of the continuing challenges we have identified, including Contract oversight and training and equipping the Afghan National Security Forces. The ANSF is a critical pillar for establishing security and stability in Afghanistan. The Military Health System, which provides services to approximately 9.5 million beneficiaries, including active duty personnel and their families. Medical care required by military personnel is expected to increase in the next several years, especially in the areas of rehabilitation and transition care.
