Summary
After more than four years of reconstruction activity, U.S. reconstruction agencies continue to experience difficulties transferring completed projects to the Government of Iraq (GOI). GOI recognition of projects is important to ensure ongoing support for the projects, to inform its own reconstruction planning, and to leverage completed projects to obtain financing for future initiatives from world markets. This review follows up on SIGIR's earlier work to determine the following: (1) the extent to which U.S. reconstruction agencies working in Iraq have made progress in establishing a uniform policy and procedure for transferring projects to the GOI, and (2) whether the Embassy has made progress in obtaining GOI support for a formal asset-transfer agreement. SIGIR previously recommended that the Ambassador and the Commanding General, Multi-National Force-Iraq (MNF-I) take these actions: (1) Direct that a single set of policies, processes, and procedures for transferring assets be developed for use by all involved agencies and for all U.S. projects, regardless of funding source (this recommendation remains open); (2) Enter into high-level discussions with the GOI on developing a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the transfer of assets. SIGIR is modifying this recommendation to clarify its intent that the discussions result in an MOU and it is reopening the recommendation. The U.S. Embassy-Iraq, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-Gulf Region Division (GRD) provided written comments on this report. The Embassy did not concur with SIGIR's recommendations. GRD generally agreed with the facts as presented in the draft report. SIGIR continues to believe its recommendations have merit and the report details the basis for SIGIR's position
