The Dept. of State, Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS), is responsible for protecting personnel, facilities, and info. Ai both domestic and abroad. Over the years, DS has been unable to provide long-term personal protective services solely from its pool of special agents, and it has turned to contractual support. This report focuses on the Blackwater contract in Iraq and associated task orders. This audit addressed four objectives: 1. What was the contracting process? 2. What were the key requirements and provisions of the contract and task orders? 3. What are the costs and funding sources of the contract and task orders? 4. How did the Dept. administer the contract and task orders to provide proper oversight of BlackwaterAis cost and performance in Iraq?Missing Item Type Make Model Serial/ID Number Satellite Phone Iridum 9505A Handheld Radio Motorola XTS5000 1598 Handheld Radio Motorola XTS5000R 320CAP2104 Handheld Radio Motorola XTS5000R 320CEL6753 Handheldanbsp;...
