Bechtel National, one of the largest US
contractors working in Iraq, met its original objectives on fewer than half of
the projects it received as part of a $1.8bn reconstruction contract.
The audit, carried out by the Office of the
Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, found that were
objectives were not met, in most cases the project was either canceled, reduced
in scope or never completed as designed.
But the report, also places a large share of the blame for the failures on
the government overseers at the US Agency for International Development who
administered the contract, the International Herald Tribune reported.
