Summary From fiscal year 2005 to 2010, Congress appropriated about $28 billion for the Afghanistan Security Forces Fund. The Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan (CSTC-A), under the direction of U.S. Forces-Afghanistan (USFOR-A), uses this funding to equip, train, base, and sustain the Afghanistan National Security Forces (ANSF), which includes the Afghan National Army (ANA) and Afghan National Police (ANP). ANSF personnel strength is planned to reach 305,600 in October 2011 and, according to CSTC-A may go to 400,000 in October 2013. Additional facilities and infrastructure are needed. In previous SIGAR audits, CSTC-A was not able to provide planning documents describing the size, location, or use of ANSF facilities, such as ANA garrisons. AS a result, SIGAR initiated this audit to (1) determine the U.S. funding provided or planned for ANSF facilities construction and (2) assess CSTC-A's overall planning for ANSF facilities construction and the maintenance of them. To accomplish these objectives, SIGAR reviewed numerous documents identified by CSTC-A. In particular, SIGAR examined CSTC-A's August 2010 ANSF Comprehensive Plan for Facilities Development. This plan was prepared by MACTEC Engineering and Consulting, Inc. (MACTEC) under a contract through the Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment (AFCEE). SIGAR also interviewed officials from CSTC-A, AFCEE, and MACTEC. SIGAR conducted its work in Washington, D.C. from July 2010 to January 2011, in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards.
