Today SIGAR posted several reports and products:

–Testimony of Inspector General John F. Sopko before the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. Mr. Sopko testified about oversight challenges and their implications for Afghan women and girls.

–The last three pages of the testimony include a new Afghanistan oversight access map showing some projects outside of possible oversight “bubbles” in 2014.  The projects total more than $725 million.

–Inspection report of the Walayatti Medical Clinic; inspectors found that the facility was not constructed according to design specifications and has never been used.  As a result, the nearly $200,000 of U.S. taxpayer funds spent on the facility appears to have been wasted.
