From the Document: "Since 2011, the Office of Security Cooperation-Iraq (OSC-I) has operated in one of the most complex operating environments in the world, with ongoing military operations against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS); threats from other terrorist and insurgent groups; religious, ethnic, and territorial tensions; and threats from the government of Iran. Based at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, OSC-I supports the U.S. Mission in Iraq and U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) by conducting security assistance activities, defense institution building, and regional engagements. [...] We conducted this performance audit from June 2018 to November 2019 in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain sufficient, appropriate evidence to provide a reasonable basis for our findings and conclusions based on our audit objectives. We believe that the evidence obtained provides a reasonable basis for our findings and conclusions based on our audit objectives."
