From the AFP:
US-based DynCorps International failed to provide nearly 60 percent of the instructors needed to train Afghan police under a contract with the US government, according to an audit issued Monday.
The Defense Department and DynCorps signed a two-year contract in December 2010 worth more than $1 billion to train police forces in Afghanistan, requiring the firm to have instructors in place within a 120-day deadline.
Defense officials “reported that the incoming contractor did not have 428 of the 728 required personnel in place within the 120-day transition period,” said the audit by inspectors general from the Defense and State departments.
The shortage “placed the overall mission at risk by not providing the mentoring essential for developing the Afghan Government and Police Force,” it said.
