This report discusses one of the largest Department of Defense contracts funded by the Iraq Security Forces Fund. The contract was awarded to AECOM Government Services (AECOM) for Global Maintenance and Supply Services in Iraq (GMASS). This contract supports a Multi-National Security Transition Command-Iraq (MNSTC-I) program to assist the Iraqi Army develop a logistics capability so that it can be self-sufficient. SIGIR reviewed three task orders under the contract; Task Order 3, for the renovation of maintenance facilities, the repair and maintenance of Iraqi Army vehicles and equipment, the purchase of a parts inventory, and on-the-job training; Task Order 5, which incorporated the requirements of Task Order 3, extends its period of performance, and transitions the maintenance and supply operations to Iraqi control; and Task Order 6, for refurbishing up to 8,500 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs) and training the Iraqi Army in their maintenance. The objectives of this report are to determine (1) the cost of the three task orders, (2) the outcome of the three task orders, and (3) the adequacy of contract oversight. What SIGIR Recommends SIGIR recommends that the Commanding General, MNSTC-I, negotiate an agreement with the Ministry of Defense for transitioning maintenance operations to the Iraqi Army. SIGIR identified a lesson learned on incorporating an assessment of the risks of increased costs and program failure in any similar force development initiatives. MNSTC-I concurred with SIGIR's recommendation that it should negotiate an agreement with the Ministry of Defense for transitioning maintenance responsibility to the Iraqi Army and that the agreement should identify each party's role and responsibilities, and identify a time line for achieving the goal.
