Abstract:

This report provides a summary of SIGAR s oversight work and an update on developments in the three major sectors of Afghanistan s reconstruction effort from October 1 to December 31, 2014. It also includes a discussion of coordination of aid to Afghanistan. During this reporting period, SIGAR published 17 audits, inspections, alert letters, and other reports assessing the U.S. efforts to build the Afghan security forces, improve governance, and facilitate economic and social development. These reports identified a number of problems, including a lack of accountability, failures of planning, construction deficiencies, and other threats to health and safety. SIGAR also announced the creation of its new Lessons Learned Program and published its first High-Risk List. SIGAR s Investigation Directorate had an exceptionally productive quarter, with monetary results totaling over 65.8 million from criminal fines, restitutions, forfeitures, contract monies protected, and civil settlement agreements. SIGAR investigations also resulted in five arrests, six indictments, six convictions, one sentencing, and the discharge of a U.S. military member. In Afghanistan, 10 individuals were barred from access to military installations. SIGAR s suspension and debarment program referred 12 individuals and five companies for suspension or debarment based on allegations that they engaged in fraud and non-performance in contracts.
