Steven J. Trent (ed)
During FY 2009 through 2011, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) provided more than $4.2 billion to its implementing partners to carry out reconstruction and development assistance programs in Afghanistan. Implementing partners are responsible for their own security needs and most contracted with private security contractors (PSC) for security services for their offices, housing, and project sites and for the movement of their personnel. In March 2011, the Afghan government issued The Bridging Strategy for Implementation of Presidential Decree 62, which provided for the eventual dissolution of most PSCs. Under this strategy, the Afghan government required that security services for development programs and projects transfer to a state-run Afghan Public Protection Force (APPF) by March 20, 2012. In Jan. 2012, President Karzai approved a model allowing implementing partners to use risk management companies (RMC) to advise on the security of sites, personnel, logistics, transportation of goods and equipment, and contract management. This report assesses (1) the costs and the number of personnel and vehicles associated with PSCs for selected USAID projects during FY 2009 through 2011 and (2) the potential costs related to the transition of security services from PSCs to the APPF and the plans of implementing partners after the transition. It also determines whether USAIDäó»s implementing partners for selected projects were using PSCs licensed by the Afghan government. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
