Statement by NSC Spokesman Mike Hammer on the Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency Evaluation of the IG's Operations in Afghanistan
A joint team at NSC and OMB received a preliminary briefing today from the Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE), which is a statutory body of IGs. At the request of the NSC and in coordination with the Department of Defense and the Department of State, CIGIE is conducting a review of the operations of the Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction, who has been in place since the close of the Bush Administration. We are committed to minimizing waste, fraud and abuse in our reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan, and strong and effective IG operations in Afghanistan are important to those efforts. We appreciate the expertise and independence of CIGIE in evaluating the IGs operations in Afghanistan, and we look forward to receiving CIGIEs final report in a few weeks.
