SIGAR Audit-11-12 Anti-Corruption / Afghan Major Crimes Task Force


U.S. Agencies Have Provided Training and Support to Afghanistan’s Major Crimes Task Force, but Reporting and Reimbursement Issues Need to be Addressed

SIGAR Audit -11-12  July 19, 2011

What SIGAR Reviewed
Corruption continues to be a significant problem in Afghanistan. To help fight corruption, the Afghan government
established the Major Crimes Task Force (MCTF) in 2009 as the principal Afghan government agency responsible
for investigating and processing major anti-corruption, kidnapping, and organized crime cases.                In particular, the
MCTF conducts corruption investigations of high-level Afghan government officials. U.S. government agents,
primarily from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), mentor and train Afghan investigators who are assigned
to the MCTF. SIGAR conducted this audit to (1) determine the nature and extent of U.S. assistance for the MCTF
and (2) evaluate whether U.S. assistance was provided in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. This
report is part of a series of audits by SIGAR addressing U.S. government efforts to strengthen anti-corruption
capabilities of the Afghan government. We conducted our work in Kabul, Afghanistan, and Washington, D.C., from
September 2010 to July 2011, in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards.
