The U.S. Agency for International Development - USAID - took charge of refirbishing a major road in Indonesia. But delays and problems with local contractors pushed the project back. Now the road is complete, but since the contracts for the companies USAID hired ended earlier this year, no one is left to inspect the road. USAID said it needs qualified inspectors to evaluate about 50 miles, more than half of the completed road.
USAID is considering rehiring some of the original contractors to finish the inspection, but has yet to make a final determination, the GAO reported.
