Joint Audit of Blackwater Contract and Task Orders for Worldwide Personal Protective Services in Iraq
Harold W. Geisel (ed)
The Dept. of State, Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS), is responsible for protecting personnel, facilities, and information — both domestic and abroad. Over the years, DS has been unable to provide long-term personal protective services solely from its pool of special agents, and it has turned to contractual support. When, in 2004, on short notice, the Dept. assumed responsibility for protecting Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) personnel in Iraq, it turned to contractor support.In mid-2004, the Dept. negotiated sole-source letter contracts with Blackwater Security Consulting and with Triple Canopy for personal security services in Iraq, which were already providing personal protective services in Iraq to the CPA under Dept. of Defense (DOD) contracts. In June 2005, the Dept. of State awarded its second Worldwide Personal Protective Services contract to three companies — Blackwater, Triple Canopy, and DynCorp International, LLC. This report focuses on the Blackwater contract in Iraq and associated task orders. A joint audit by the Dept. of State Office of Inspector General (OIG), Office of Audits, and the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR), Office of Audits, addressed four objectives: 1. What was the contracting process? 2. What were the key requirements and provisions of the contract and task orders? 3. What are the costs and funding sources of the contract and task orders? 4. How did the Dept. administer the contract and task orders to provide proper oversight of Blackwater’s cost and performance in Iraq? Tables.
