Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR) Audit, Government Agencies Cannot Fully Identify Projects Financed with Iraq Relief and Reconstruction Funds (SIGIR 13-006), March 6, 2013

  • “Following the 2003 intervention in Iraq and the fall of Saddam Hussein’s regime, the United States initiated a major relief and reconstruction program to stabilize the country, rehabilitate the economy, provide a secure and safe environment by recruiting and training Iraq
    police and military forces, and provide for humanitarian and emergency relief, among other objectives. Over the last nine years, the United States provided billions of dollars for thousands of projects funded and managed by multiple federal agencies. These projects ranged from small-scale efforts such as providing cash to individual Iraqis for humanitarian relief, to large-scale construction projects to revitalize Iraq’s infrastructure. Altogether, $60.6 billion in U.S. appropriated funds were allocated to this effort.”
