Civilian Police International employee pleads guilty to engaging in "kick-backs" in Afghanistan.

An employee of CPI, a Virginia based private security consulting firm, plead guilty yesterday to soliciting a kick-back on a USAID private security contract.

In August 2006, USAID awarded a $1.4 billion contract known as the Afghanistan Infrastructure Rehabilitation Project. The Virginia company, Civilian Police International are one of the companies benefitting form that large contract as they provide training to Afghan Police Officers.

Ryan Scott McMonigle of Oklahoma, worked for CPI in Kabul. He admitted that he assisted in the solicitation of a kick back from a private security vendor involved with protecting USAID personnel and contractors under the AIRP contract.

Ironically, CPI’s website states; “CPI stresses discipline, integrity, accountability, ethics…”

Or should that read….”getting contracts no matter what is involved”.
