The minutes from the PRB meetings of January 17, 2004 were approved.


The following Program Review Board Requests were presented to the Board for recommendation to the Administrator:

#622 - Fuel Imports - $635,000,000 - Mike Ensch of CPA - Task Force RIO (Restore Iraqi Oil) briefed the Board. This request is for the emergency import of LPG, Benzene, Kerosene and Diesel to help meet the domestic daily needs of these fuels. This request is to fund fuel import requirements through the end of April 2004. Task Force Restore Iraqi Oil (TF RIO) is working with Defense Energy Support Center (DESC) and SOMO (Southern Oil Marketing Organization) to fulfill the Iraqis fuel imports requirements until a new contract could be competitively awarded. On April 1, 2004, DESC will execute that portion of the import mission currently assigned to KBR. SOMO will likely purchase up to $40M. Approved - DFI

#606 - Iraqi Weapons Badge - $6,200,000 - Rodney Bent briefed the Board and recommended that an extraordinary PRB Board meeting be held during the week of 25 January 2004 for representatives from the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Interior, and CTJF-7 to convene and find agreement on next steps for the proposal.

#623 - War Hulk Removal Program - $966,722 - Ted Morse, CPA - Baghdad Central briefed the Board. This request is to pay the remaining debts to contractors who have removed war hulks last summer and to fund the hulks left in the city. The initial CPA Baghdad Central hulk removal budget was not sufficient to complete the war hulk removal. The following was approved: all contracts for previous work completed will be paid in full, while we will seek concessionary contracts for all removals remaining to be done. Lastly, it was recommended that a uniform policy - country wide - of hulk removal be discussed at the next Regional Commanders Conference. Approved - Seized.

#565 - Printing Press for Najaf - $522,250 - This request is to provide funds for the contract to move a printing press that was seized Iraqi property from an unusable location to a more suitable Al Najaf facility and upgrade to accommodate digital input. Since CPA - South entered into an unauthorized commitment on this request, a Action Memo subject “Ratification of Purchase of Printing Press” dated January 19, 2004 was submitted from the Office of General Counsel to the Acting Administrator for his approval. Approved - R3P (Rapid Regional Response Program). The Action Memo was approved on January 20, 2004. Briefing was for informational purposes only.
