Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR) Reports to Congress

October 30, 2005 Report

October 30, 2005 Cover"In this Report, you will find ten final reports generated by SIGIR auditors, including the latest in a series of audits on the mismanagement of Development Fund for Iraq assets by the Coalition Provisional Authority, a money-saving review of the award-fee process for Iraq reconstruction contracts, and an in-depth examination of U.S. plans to ensure the sustainment of Iraq’s infrastructure.

You will also find 12 detailed, eye-witness reports from reconstruction sites in Iraq. SIGIR inspectors have spent the last four months fanning out across Iraq, examining the quality of the projects being built with taxpayer dollars. They found that many of the projects demonstrate quality workmanship; in one instance, the inspectors suggested an engineering modifi cation at an oil site that will result in millions of dollars in additional revenue for Iraq.

During this quarter, SIGIR investigators made extensive progress on a series of significant cases alleging fraud, bribery, and kickbacks involving U.S. citizens—both government and contractor—in Iraq. The Special Investigative Task Force on Iraq Reconstruction (SPITFIRE) has generated an enormous amount of evidence in support of these investigations. SPITFIRE includes, along with SIGIR investigators, participants from the Internal Revenue Service, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Department of State Offi ce of Inspector General. Recently, SIGIR transferred more than $2 million to the Department of Justice’s Criminal Division to fund prosecution efforts; four prosecutors are now working full-time on SIGIR cases."
