Saddam Hussein never prepared a budget after he came to power in 1979.
The Iraqi national budgets for the second half of 2003 and all of 2004 (Iraq budgets on a calendar year) are posted elsewhere on this website. Iraqi ministers participated in the preparation of their ministries’ budgets and now run their ministries within those budgets.
To further foster a climate of transparency, the Coalition established and maintains a Program Review Board to examine requests to spend Iraqi funds controlled by the Coalition and make recommendations on expenditures to the Administrator. The minutes of those meetings are also available here.
