" . . . CSTC-A has not fully developed the capacity of the ministries to operate effectively, independently, and transparently. This occurred because CSTC-A did not hold the ministries accountable for not instituting the necessary controls over the contract management process and did not enforce the requirements within the commitment letters."www.dodig.mil/pubs/report_summary.cfm?id=6269

DoDIG Report Faults CSTC-A
A recent Department of Defense Inspector General report faults CSTC-A for failure to provide oversight and to develop the proper mechanisms to ensure direct funding assistance to the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) is used properly. The report, Acquisition Processes and Contract Management, DoDIG-2015-082, February 26, 2015 determined that the Ministries of Defense and Interior (MoD and MoI) have not established effective controls over the contract management process. Sounds like an EF 1 PPBE task.
