SIGAR Audit of USAID Accelerated Sustainable Agriculture Program and Afghanistan Stabilization Initiative Contracts

The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) conducted a financial audit of two United States Agency for International Development (USAID) contracts with Chemonics International: one supporting the Accelerated Sustainable Agriculture Program (ASAP) and one supporting the Afghanistan Stabilization Initiative (ASI). The audit covered the period November 2006 through October 2011 and expenditures of $132.8 million for ASAP, and June 2009 through June 2012 and expenditures of $119.5 million for ASI. The audit found three internal control deficiencies and five instances of material noncompliance with the terms of the contract and applicable laws and regulations. These deficiencies and instances of noncompliance resulted in more than $2 million in unsupported costs (costs not supported by sufficient documentation to allow a determination of their accuracy and allowability) and costs prohibited by the contract, laws, or regulations. SIGAR recommended that USAID recover, as appropriate, $2,032,485 in questioned costs identified in the report.
