April 2007: Quarterly Report To Congress

The Changing Face of Iraq Reconstruction

In 2003, the Congress appropriated nearly $21 billion to the Iraq Relief and Reconstruction Fund (IRRF). Today, more than 98% of these taxpayer dollars have been obligated, and more than 84% have been expended. Most IRRF projects are now complete, and most of the remaining ones are estimated to be complete by the end of 2007. U.S. support to Iraq thus is evolving toward a more traditional relief and development program, with U.S. funds and activities now focusing more on targeted technical assistance to enhance the operating capacity of the Government of Iraq (GOI), to promote political and economic reform, and to stimulate growth. Considerable effort continues to center on improving security so that meaningful economic and political development can occur.

With the end of the IRRF, SIGIR will now provide broader reviews of what was achieved through the overall program. Section 2 of this Quarterly Report compares the original goals and expectations of IRRF 2 with the projects and activities actually completed and provides a review of the continuing funding streams supporting Iraq: the Iraq Security Forces Fund; the Economic Support Fund; and the Commander’s Emergency Response Program.
