We determined whether DoD activities established a process to evaluate whether construction projects for U.S. facilities in Afghanistan should be completed or terminated. For those projects to be completed, we determined whether DoD activities had effective completion and sustainment plans. DoD activities established a process to determine whether ongoing military construction projects for U.S. facilities in Afghanistan should be completed or terminated. Specifically, United States Forces Afghanistan personnel routinely coordinated with DoD activities to review ongoing military construction projects to ensure they were aligned with strategic mission requirements, and constructed to acceptable standards of quality and aid in the process of transitioning facilities for sustainment. As a result, DoD activities realized a cost savings of 22.7 million through termination and offsets of select military construction projects. In addition, completion and sustainment plans were developed for all seven ongoing construction projects we reviewed.
