Project Announcement: Research on the DoD’s Execution of Funds Provided for Assistance to Ukraine (Project No. D2022-D000FL-0123.000)

Audit

We plan to begin our research project in March 2022. The objective of this research project is to examine the DoD’s processes for tracking, reprogramming, and reporting the use of funds provided for assistance to Ukraine. The Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2022 provided the DoD with $6.528 billion in funds for assistance to Ukraine. Specifically, the Act provided the DoD with $3.028 billion for U.S. European Command operations mission support, the deployment of personnel to the region, and intelligence support; and $3.5 billion to replace DoD stocks, and to reimburse for defense services, education, and training provided to Ukraine. Furthermore, Section 2302 of the Act requires the DoD Office of Inspector General to review the DoD’s execution of the funds appropriated in the Act, and to provide to the congressional defense committees a written report by July 13, 2022.
