KABUL - Findings by TOLOnews indicate that the Operation and Support Office of the President for National Development (OSOPND) has been awarded more than 800 projects over the past two years but the authority has provided scant or conflicting information to the media, which had requested information regarding these projects. Officials of the authority said their activities encompass 57 projects and so far they have invested Afs10 billion ($128 million) into current development initiatives.
