Abstract:

Law enforcement is a critical component of effective oversight. SIGAR has built one of the largest and most experienced teams of federal agents and analysts working in both Afghanistan and the United States to protect the U.S. investment in the reconstruction of Afghanistan. The SIGAR overview section of this report describes what SIGARs investigators are doing to successfully overcome significant challenges in Afghanistans complex environment to prevent waste, fraud, abuse, and corruption. SIGAR is focusing on five critical areas detecting fraud, building criminal and civil cases for prosecution in the United States and Afghanistan, tracking the flow of stolen reconstruction funds, preventing poorly performing and corrupt individuals and companies from receiving U.S.-funded contracts, and exposing lax management practices in U.S. programs and Afghan ministries that place U.S. taxpayer dollars at risk.
