SIGAR cites lack of oversight in $457M training program

WASHINGTON — The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, or SIGAR, has reported difficulty in identifying whether a $457.7 million program was successful due to a lack of accountability methods.

The Legacy and Afghanistan Source Operations Management program, or ASOM, set out to train and develop the Afghan National Security and Defense Forces’ (ANDSF) intelligence capabilities in 2007. The Army Contract Command, or ACC, awarded one task order and four contracts to Imperatis Corporation, who subcontracted with New Century Consulting throughout 2010 to 2013 to accomplish this.

Specifically, New Century was tasked with developing training courses for Afghan intelligence officers and, in 2013, ACC awarded New Century the contract to implement these training courses and mentor intelligence officers at various sites in Afghanistan.
