The ongoing conflict in Syria has created a complex humanitarian crisis. The United Nations estimates that approximately 13.5 million people in the country are in need of humanitarian assistance. The United States, through the Department of State (State) and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), has provided over $6.5 billion to fund humanitarian assistance efforts to support people affected by the crisis in Syria, about half of which supports those inside the country. The presentation will discuss GAO examination of the efforts of U.S. agencies to ensure financial oversight of humanitarian assistance provided to support people inside Syria, including the factors affecting delivery of such assistance and the extent to which State, USAID, and their implementing partners have assessed risks and implemented financial controls.

A Three Course, Served Luncheon is included:
