An emergency meeting was held and the following funding requests were approved for recommendation to the Administrator:

 

#444, USAID Incremental Funding, $350M. The Board recommended approval an incremental increase for USAID to do nine additional high priority infrastructure projects in electricity and water/sanitation.

 

#446, Import of Fuel, $245M. The Board previously approved requests for $90M per month for the import of fuel (benzene, LPG and kerosene) for use by the Iraqi public. The monthly amount required increased to $223M, in order to meet immediate needs and to start to build a reserve. The request for $879M projected several months requirements, however, the Board approved only a monthly requirement plus a small reserve ($245M) in order to assess the requirements monthly.

 

Reprogramming Request:

 

#352, Restore Iraqi Infrastructure, $711M. The Board considered the request from Task Force RIO for changing the funding source from appropriated funds to the Development Fund of Iraq a previously approved request (#352, total amount approved $962M). $251M was already provided from the Natural Resource Risk Remediation Fund (NRRRF), an appropriated funds account. TF RIO indicated that $711M is outstanding and required but of that amount $466M was immediately required to complete projects under Phase I. The Board identified $500M as remaining available from two appropriated accounts - the Iraq Reconstruction and Relief Fund (IRRF) and the NRRRF and therefore the requirement was approved to come from the appropriated funds. A new vote may be required for the remaining amount $211M but this was deferred.
