U.S. Military-Occupied Facilities Inspection―King Abdullah II Special Operations Training Center   [open pdf - 10MB]

"Our objective was to inspect U.S. military�'occupied facilities at King Abdullah II Special Operations Training Center (KASOTC) to verify compliance with DoD health and safety policies and standards regarding the electrical and fire protection systems and to conduct a radiological assessment to determine whether background radiation levels from foreign building materials pose an unacceptable health risk. We found significant deficiencies in electrical and fire protection systems during the physical inspections of the U.S. military-occupied facilities at KASOTC. We identified a total of 286 deficiencies that could affect the health, safety, and well-being of warfighters: 154 related to fire protection and 132 related to electrical systems. Based on our evaluation, the majority of deficiencies resulted from insufficient inspection and inadequate maintenance of the facilities attributable to the lack of a maintenance and inspection plan. Of the total deficiencies, 77 were critical, requiring immediate action; therefore, we issued a notice of concern (NOC) to the Commanders of U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM) and U.S. Army Central (USARCENT)."
