The purpose of this management advisory is to provide officials responsible for the receiving, housing, supporting, and preparing Afghan evacuees for movement to their final resettlement location with the results from our site visit to Task Force (TF) Liberty at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JB MDL), New Jersey. The audit team visited TF Liberty from October 4 through 8, 2021. We conducted the work on this project with integrity, objectivity, and independence, as required by the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency’s Quality Standards for Federal Offices of Inspector General.
Our review of TF Liberty operations at JB MDL was conducted as part of the “Audit of DoD Support for the Relocation of Afghan Nationals (Project No. D2021-D000RJ-0154.000).” The objective of this audit is to determine whether the DoD has adequately planned and provided support for the relocation of Afghan evacuees. The audit team visited JB MDL to review housing and other facilities, security, medical care, and costs associated with this effort.
