USAID modified the grant one time, which extended the period of performance end date to October 31, 2020. SIGAR's [Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction's] financial audit, performed by Conrad LLP (Conrad), reviewed $3,493,277 in costs charged to the agreement from September 1. 2019, through October 31, 2020. The objectives of the audit were to (1) identify and report on material weaknesses or significant deficiencies in [...] internal controls related to the grant; (2) identify and report on instances of material noncompliance with the terms of the grant and applicable laws and regulations, including any potential fraud or abuse; (3) determine and report on whether[...] has taken corrective action on prior findings and recommendations; and (4) express an opinion on the fair presentation of [...] Special Purpose Financial Statement (SPFS). See Conrad's report for the precise audit objectives. In contracting with an independent audit firm and drawing from the results of the audit, auditing standards require SIGAR to review the work performed. Accordingly, SIGAR oversaw the audit and reviewed its results. SIGAR's review disclosed no instances wherein Conrad did not comply, in all material respects. with generally accepted government auditing standards issued by the Comptroller General of the United States."
