Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction: Quarterly Report to the United States Congress [July 30, 2017] [open pdf - 6MB]
"This report summarizes SIGAR's [Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction] oversight work and updates developments in the four major sectors of Afghanistan's reconstruction effort from April 1 to June 30, 2017. It also includes an essay on the challenge of conducting effective reconstruction oversight under seemingly unduly restrictive restraints on movement. During this reporting period, SIGAR published 16 audits, inspections, reviews, and other products assessing the U.S. efforts to build the Afghan security forces, improve governance, facilitate economic and social development, and combat the sale and production of narcotics. During the reporting period, SIGAR criminal investigations resulted in three criminal indictments, one criminal information charge, three arrests, three convictions, one sentencing, over $200,000 in restitutions, and more than $5.5 million in savings for the U.S. government. SIGAR initiated 11 new cases and closed eight, bringing the total number of ongoing investigations to 267. Additionally, SIGAR's suspension and debarment program referred 13 individuals and 16 companies for suspension or debarment based on evidence developed as part of investigations conducted by SIGAR in Afghanistan and the United States."
