Provincial Reconstruction Teams
Developing A Cost-tracking Process Will Enhance Decision-makingWebsite or Online Data - 2009
In October 2005, the U.S. government established the Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) program in Iraq. This program is a civil-military, interagency effort that acts as the primary government interface between the United States, Coalition partners, and provincial and local governments. However, to date agencies have not separately tracked PRT operating costs. SIGIR's initial work focused on the cost of operating individual PRTs and the overall PRT program. We quickly found that the agencies involved are not required to capture these costs at the program or individual level. Consequently, SIGIR's reporting objectives are to (1) identify the major PRT program cost categories (2) estimate program costs using available information (3) assess the feasibility and usefulness of tracking PRT costs.
