U.S. Central and U.S. Africa Commands’ Oversight of Counternarcotics Activities
We determined whether U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM) and U.S. Africa Command (USAFRICOM) effectively provided oversight of counternarcotics (CN) activities. A prior DoD OIG report, issued in September 2017, focused on the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for CN and Global Threats’ (ODASD CN&GT) oversight of CN activities. In our prior audit, we found that the ODASD CN&GT did not provide effective oversight of CN activities, to include tracking funding after the funds were transferred to the Combatant Commands (COCOM) for implementation. Subsequently, we conducted this audit to review the oversight of CN activities at USCENTCOM and USAFRICOM to provide a broader understanding of how the DoD executes its CN program.
