Poor Oversight of Billions in Afghan Reconstruction Funds

Hosted by

The Afghan province of Nangarhar received $100 million in US development aid in fiscal 2010 and is often cited as a model for the rest of the country. But an audit mandated by Congress calls the program "incoherent," without mechanisms to avoid waste or monitor success. John Brummet is Assistant Inspector General for Audits at the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, SIGAR.
