SIGAR "High-Risk List" Dec 2014
The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) has published a new document that highlights areas of concern for the reconstruction of Afghanistan. The new publication is called the High-Risk List and the first issue is dated December 2014. SIGAR created the High-Risk List to call attention to program areas and elements of the U.S.-funded reconstruction effort in Afghanistan that are especially vulnerable to significant waste, fraud, and abuse. With the list, SIGAR seeks to identify and address systemic problems facing U.S. funded efforts. The list will highlight program areas on which SIGAR believes the implementing agencies need to focus and will discuss how specific agencies are failing to mitigate risks in areas that involve their operations. Although 48 page report covers a variety of topics it is of value to Security Force Assistance advisors - specifically the sections on "ANSF Sustainability" and "High-Risk Area: ANSF Capacity and Capabilities". You can read or download the report online at High-Risk List, SIGAR.
