OBJECTIVE, SCOPE, AND METHODOLOGY
 This special review focused on Department of State (Department) of 
cials’activities and public statements concerning Kenya’s draft constitution, which is thesubject of a nationwide referendum vote on August 4, 2010. It was conducted inresponse to a request (attached) from Representatives Chris Smith (R-NJ), IleanaRos-Lehtinen (R-FLA), and Darrell E. Issa (R-CA) to determine whether, in thecourse of promoting a reform agenda for the nation of Kenya, any Department ap-propriations were used to lobby for or against abortion, in violation of the Siljander Amendment.To achieve this objective, the Of 
ce of Inspector General (OIG) team reviewedinternal documents including email exchanges and telegraphic communications,both classi
ed and unclassi
ed, as well as public statements and transcripts from the White House, the Department, and the U.S. embassy in Kenya. The team also metand held interviews with Department of 
cials in Washington and in Nairobi, Kenya. The latter included a broad cross section of embassy personnel, from the Ambas-sador to section heads to locally employed Kenyan staff. Since the U.S. Agency forInternational Development’s (USAID) OIG was conducting a concurrent review of activities undertaken by USAID, the Department OIG team limited itself to actionstaken by Department employees and the overall direction of the Ambassador. This review took place in Washington, DC, and Nairobi, Kenya, between June 21and July 12, 2010.
