Briefing of
Congressional Committees
Afghanistan’s Donor DependenceSeptember, 2011
BackgroundObjectivesKey TermsObservationsScope and Methodology (Enclosure II)
The U.S. has allocated over $72 billion for security, governance, anddevelopment in Afghanistan since 2002, and the Government of the
Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIRoA) has relied on donors to fundits operating and development expenditures.
GAO has previously raisedconcerns about Afghanistan’s donordependence, including the lack of cost estimates for developing andsustaining Afghan national
security forces. Donors are alsoconcerned about GIRoA’s
ability to fund its operating expendituresand to sustain foreign investment in the country.
Past funding and expenditure data report historical information anddo not imply that these trends will continue in the future.
Note: The Department of Defense commented that it is working with the Afghan Ministries of Defense and Interior to develop cost-effective andrequirement-based estimates for future Afghanistan National Security Forces (ANSF) sustainment costs. DOD further commented that itanticipates reduced future costs to sustain the ANSF. GAO is reviewing these issues and will report on them in 2012
