Evaluation of Department of Defense Efforts to Build Counterterrorism and Stability Operations Capacity of Foreign Military Forces with Section 1206/2282 Funding (Project No. D00SPO-0190.000)


Our objective was to determine whether the Department of Defense (DoD) Global Train and Equip Program, created pursuant to Public Law 109-163, National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006, Section 1206 (2006),1 as amended, henceforth "Section 1206," effectively managed and enhanced partner-nation security-force capabilities. 


Our specific objectives were to determine whether Section 1206: 

  • efforts resulted in improved partner nation capability to conduct counterterrorism operations or to participate in stability operations with U.S. Armed Forces,
  • performance-feedback data informed DoD Section 1206 program decision making,
  • was administered by DoD officials
  • consistent with U.S. statutes and guidance, and 
  • coordination between the DoD and the Department of State (DOS) at all levels appropriately supported planning and execution.
