The center of gravity for U.S. Government assistance is therefore shifting to Afghanistan's outlying provinces. In an effort to assist the provincial governments and improve stability within the provinces, in October 2006 USAID/Afghanistan launched its Local Governance and Community Development Project in the southern and eastern provinces by awarding a 3-year, $95 million contract (subsequently increased to $164 million) to Development Alternatives Inc. (the contractor). As of August 31, 2008, USAID/Afghanistan had obligated $119 million and disbursed $41 million for the project activities. The project included four main components: (1) supporting local public administration and governance, (2) promoting community mobilization and development, (3) aiding local stability initiatives, and (4) providing expertise to support the provincial reconstruction teams’ mandate. The Regional Inspector General/Manila conducted this audit to determine whether USAID/Afghanistan’s Local Governance and Community Development Project in southern and eastern regions of Afghanistan was achieving planned results and to assess the impact the project has made.
