In 2006, the Department of State/ International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (DoS/INL) established the Corrections System Support Program. Under this program, INL initiated the design and build of the Wardak prison, consisting of 38 buildings and pieces of supporting infrastructure. In late 2013, INL transferred the Wardak prison to the Afghan Ministry of Interior (MOI) and initiated a one-year warranty period.
In 2017, SIGAR conducted six site visits to Wardak prison, noting several life and safety deficiencies at the prison (including 8 design and 9 construction-related ones). SIGAR published the final report on July 2018.
In line with the SIGAR findings, INL approached CTG to discuss infrastructure support for Wardak prison, focusing on completing repairs to the facility and fulfilling SIGAR’s recommendations.
