Report: US agencies don’t track Afghan spending
The special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction also found federal agencies still aren’t tracking their contracts in a shared database.
The lack of coordination and agency reporting on U.S. spending led the watchdog office to develop its own list of contractors tapped for Afghanistan work. Nearly 7,000 contractors received almost $18 billion between 2007 and 2009 from the Defense Department, State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development.
Those three agencies are the biggest spenders on Afghanistan projects, yet they don’t separate money for that work from other U.S.-funded projects around the world. And the report says that makes it difficult to track where the money is going.
