Semiannual Report to the Congress
April 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012
The Department of Defense (DoD) inspector general (IG) issued 79 reports identifying $2.8 billion in potential monetary benefits during this period. The Defense Criminal Investigative Service conducted investigations that resulted in 72 arrests, 167 criminal convictions, 37 suspensions, and 136 debarments, for a return of $3.3 billion to the U.S. government. Of top concern is contract oversight and training and equipping the Afghan National Security Forces, which are the critical means of establishing security and stability in Afghanistan.
