We are providing this management advisory to inform DoD leadership of the need to address additional methods for the Office of Defense Cooperation–Ukraine to fulfill part of their mission in Poland, to capture 100 percent serial number inventories of Enhanced End-Use Monitoring defense articles before transfer to Ukraine. We conducted the work on this management advisory with integrity, objectivity, and independence, as required by the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency’s Quality Standards for Inspection and Evaluation.
During our evaluation of DoD Enhanced End-Use Monitoring in Ukraine, we determined that the Defense Security Cooperation Agency’s Security Assistance Management Manual did not explicitly allow U.S. Government personnel other than the Office of Defense Cooperation–Ukraine to conduct Enhanced End-Use Monitoring of defense articles before transfer to Ukraine.
This management advisory contains recommendations to the Director, Defense Security Cooperation Agency, and the Chief, Office of Defense Cooperation-Ukraine, with coordination from other DoD stakeholders. We are providing this management advisory to enable the Director and the Chief to take immediate actions on our recommendations.
