ABSTRACT

U.S. Military-Occupied Facilities Evaluation - Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar   [open pdf - 3MB]

"Our objective was to evaluate U.S. military�'occupied facilities at Al Udeid Air Base to verify compliance with DoD health and safety policies and standards regarding indoor air quality, electrical systems, fire protection systems, and active and inactive fuel systems. We found that indoor air quality, electrical systems, fire protection systems, and inactive fuel systems were not being maintained in accordance with DoD health and safety policies and standards. However, we found that the active fuel systems at Al Udeid Air Base were generally maintained in accordance with DoD health and safety policies and standards. We identified a total of 253 deficiencies that could affect the health, safety, and well-being of DoD personnel: 13 related to indoor air quality, 105 related to electrical systems, 49 related to fire protection systems, and 86 related to inactive fuel systems. The deficiencies identified during our evaluation resulted from acceptance of new construction that did not comply with DoD health and safety policies and standards, moisture intrusion into facilities, and inadequate facility maintenance. We considered five of the electrical deficiencies we identified to be critical deficiencies requiring immediate corrective action and issued a notice of concern on June 7, 2017, to the Commander, 379th Air Expeditionary Wing."
