Abstract:

We determined whether the Army, North Atlantic Treaty Organization Training Mission-Afghanistan NTM-ACombined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan CSTC-A, and the Defense Contract Management Agency DCMA had adequate oversight processes and procedures for the Afghan National Police ANP contract, and whether DoD conducted adequate surveillance of the contract, valued at approximately 1.2 billion. This is the second in a series of audits on the ANP contract. We found that DCMA, NTM-ACSTC-A, and Army officials did not implement adequate oversight of the ANP contract. This occurred because DCMA did not coordinate oversight procedures with program or contracting personnel and did not implement quality assurance requirements that DCMA management considered critical to mission success. Contracting officer s representatives CORs for the ANP contract did not conduct effective contractor oversight. This occurred because DCMA personnel did not review COR audit checklists, provide CORs feedback on completed audit checklists, or train CORs on oversight responsibilities. DCMA and International Security Assistance Force Joint Command officials did not perform adequate oversight of fielded mentors for the ANP contract. This occurred because quality assurance representatives QARs did not always provide training and followup on audit checklists received from the CORs. NTM-ACSTC-A and Red River Army Depot RRAD personnel nominated six CORs we interviewed who were not effectively providing oversight of the ANP contract. This occurred because NTM-ACSTC-A personnel developed a memorandum of agreement with RRAD that did not identify appropriate COR qualifications. As a result, contractor performance at ANP training sites where the six RRAD CORs were appointed was not adequately measured and assessed. In addition, the Army could not determine whether the contractor fully delivered 439 million in services or provided effective training of the ANP.
