U.S. Army Central Support Element-Jordan Did Not Implement Controls to Effectively Maintain Facilities at the Joint Training Center-Jordan

Our objective was to determine whether DoD is effectively maintaining facilities at the Joint Training Center (JTC)–Jordan. JTC is a contingency base occupied by elements of the Jordanian Armed Forces (JAF) and Allied partners. There are two types of U.S.-occupied facilities on JTC: JAF-owned facilities and U.S.-built facilities. The U.S. Army Central Support Element–Jordan (ASE-J) pays a monthly utilization fee for the use of the JAF-owned facilities. In March 2016, the ASE-J and JAF entered into an Implementing Arrangement (IA) to the U.S.-Jordan Acquisition and Cross-Servicing Agreement, which outlined reimbursement for maintenance performed by the JAF for the JAF-owned, U.S.-occupied facilities. However, ASE-J personnel stated the IA did not require JAF to provide maintenance to U.S.-built facilities on JTC.
