Welcome to the CPA Oil for Food Transition Page

برنامج النفط مقابل الغذاء


As part of the Iraq transition of sovereignty, on July 1, 2004 the administration of the Oil for Food program will transfer from the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) to the individual Iraq ministries. Since the inception of the CPA Oil for Food Coordination Center on November 21, 2003, the CPA has worked with the Iraqi ministries to impart all business procedures related to the processing of Oil for Food contracts. As many suppliers have already experienced, decisions regarding Oil for Food contracts were made jointly between the CPA and the Iraqi ministries. July 1, 2004 will be a turning point where Iraqi ministries will independently process all matters relevant to remaining Oil for Food contracts.






Beginning June 15, 2004, the Oil for Food Coordination Center will no longer accept supplier inquiries and will refer all issues to the appropriate Iraqi ministries. This closure is to allow completion of the necessary administration associated with the transfer. We urge all suppliers to begin contacting and familiarizing themselves with the appropriate Iraqi ministry prior to the transition date.     

Please also be advised that there will be a two-week period from June 15, 2004 through June 30, 2004  where all new Letter of Credit amendment requests will not be processed.  This is to facilitate the transfer and migration of all data and information directly to ministries prior to July 1, 2004.  The holding period will enable the ministries to quickly and efficiently expedite responses to inquiries in areas such as Letter of Credit Amendments, Ad hoc Authentications, and Payment Inquiries after the transition.
