A Program Review Board meeting was convened to consider several urgent requests and approved the following for recommendation to the Administrator:
#437, Police Training & Development Program, $18M, The Board approved an initial down payment to start several large programs including Police Recruitment and Selection, Police Training, Police Institutional Reform and Development, and Development of Police Operational Capacities (to deal with organized crime).
#428, National Micro Credit Program, †The Board supported a micro-credit lending program to governorates not included in the earlier program. This will likely be funded through several organizations to be selected through a competitively bid process.
#440, Support for the Currency Exchange, $51M. The Board approved support for the exchange which is to occur on 15 October. Logistical and security plans will begin execution in September. This provides funding for an airfreight contract to bring funds into locations within Iraq, accounting machines, support and salaries for security and financial personnel to do the exchange.
†Where the publication of approved funding levels may prejudice the competitive contracting processes, these amounts will be redacted.
