The participating Department of Defense and Federal oversight agencies, which comprise the Southwest Asia Joint Planning Group, are pleased to present the Fiscal Year 2012 Comprehensive Oversight Plan for Southwest Asia (FY 2012 COPSWA). The FY 2012 COPSWA incorporates the planned and ongoing oversight by the Inspectors General of the Department of Defense, Department of State, and the U.S. Agency for International Development; the Special Inspectors General for Iraq Reconstruction and Afghanistan Reconstruction; the Army Audit Agency; the Naval Audit Service; and the Air Force Audit Agency. Additionally, the FY 2012 update includes the U.S. Government Accountability Office's ongoing oversight efforts related to Southwest Asia. The COPSWA includes descriptions of oversight projects that directly impact efforts in Southwest Asia and surrounding areas, as of October 1, 2011. The FY 2012 edition is organized by each oversight agency and impacted country, including Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, Pakistan, Qatar, and other countries. The projects are listed in the estimated project start date order by month-year for each country grouping. The projects may be conducted exclusively in theater, require travel into theater, or be conducted outside the theater, such as solely in the continental United States (CONUS). REQUIRED OVERSIGHT: The COPSWA was first issued in June 2008 (and each year since) in accordance with the requirements of Public Law 110-181, "The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008," section 842, "Investigation of Waste, Fraud, and Abuse in Wartime Contracts and Contracting Processes in Iraq and Afghanistan," January 28, 2008. In 2009, we began to include additional oversight requirements as directed by Public Law 110-417, "The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2009," section 852, "Comprehensive Audit of Spare Parts, Purchases, and Depot Overhaul and Maintenance of Equipment For Operations in Iraq and Afghanistan," October 14, 2008 (see Section 2). Additional information on Sections 842 and 852, respectively, can be found in Appendix B. EXPANSION OF THE OVERSIGHT PLAN TO INCLUDE ADDITIONAL AREAS SUPPORTING THE U.S. MISSION IN SOUTHWEST ASIA: We expanded this oversight plan beyond the statutory mandate to show all of the audit, inspection, and evaluation work (oversight) for Iraq and Afghanistan and the rest of the U.S. Central Command's area of responsibility. In addition to the audits of contracts, subcontracts, and task and delivery orders for logistical support being conducted, this comprehensive plan addresses other oversight areas, including asset accountability, transition of security responsibilities to Iraq and Afghanistan, financial and logistics management, security, rule of law, and economical and social development. Our agencies continue to work together through the Southwest Asia Joint Planning Group to coordinate and provide effective oversight of the U.S.-led efforts in Southwest Asia. We also continue to coordinate oversight plans through improved communications among the members on a regular basis and on individual projects as they are proposed throughout the year.
