The U.S. Agency for Internat. Devt. (USAID) relies on implementing partners -- such as nongovernmental organizatons and commercial companies -- to carry out its reconstruction and development assistance programs in Afghanistan. Until early 2012, implementing partners executing USAIDs largest projects contracted with private security contractors (PSCs) to provide security services for personnel, offices, housing, project sites, and movements. In Aug. 2010, the President of Afghanistan issued a decree requiring the disbandment of all PSCs. However, in March 2011, the Afghan government issued a bridging strategy that delayed by 1 year the PCS disbandment and the requirement that implementing partners transfer security services formerly provided by PSCs to the state-run Afghan Public Protection Force (APPF). The strategy also allowed the use of risk mngt. companies (RMCs) to provide security advisory services. This report (1) determines the effect of the transition to the APPF on the security provided for USAID projects; (2) examines the costs of APPF and RMC services for select projects; and (3) assesses USAIDs mechanisms to review costs of security services provided by the APPF and RMCs. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
