The Inspections Directorate wound down its operations in Iraq in 2010. Between 2005 and 2010, SIGIR published 170 project assessment reports and conducted 96 limited on-site assessments. Moreover, SIGIR was the first Inspector General to use of satellite imagery for assessing construction projects, issuing 871 aerial assessments of Iraq reconstruction projects. SIGIR intends to publish an Inspections Capping Report later in 2011.

In December 2011, SIGIR published Iraq Reconstruction: Lessons in Inspections of U.S.-funded Stabilization and Reconstruction Projects. This report provides details on how SIGIR implemented its Inspections program and what lessons SIGIR derived from its assessment of projects in a war zone. The report also summarizes SIGIR's most significant and notable project assessments, and it describes the impact of SIGIR's work on the oversight of U.S.-funded reconstruction projects in Iraq.
