Program Management Office Tours Seven Iraqi Cities to Discuss Reconstruction Projects

BAGHDAD, Iraq – The Program Management Office (PMO) have embarked on a seven-city tour of Central and Northern Iraq to meet with local leaders and discuss the reconstruction projects slated for their areas.

Along with the PMO, members of the Coalition Provisional Authority, Iraqi ministries and the military will be visiting Mosul, Tikrit, Fallujah, Bakuba, Ramadi, Samarra and Baghdad with lists of reconstruction projects, which will begin construction later this year.

These projects will be funded by a number of sources, including the $18.4 billion supplement, DFI, CERP, R3P and the Capital Budget for Ministries.

“We are at a critical junction with the reconstruction effort,” said RADM David J. Nash, USN (Ret.), Director of the CPA Program Management Office. “We are launching this tour to discuss these projects with the local councils and work with them on restoring a better quality of life for the people of Iraq.”

The construction projects are part of the overall reconstruction of Iraq’s vital infrastructure and are categorized through six sectors, including electricity, water resources/public works, security and justice, transportation and communications, buildings/health/education, and oil.

In addition to the projects, the reconstruction effort will provide a wide range of jobs and opportunities for local businesses to participate in the project completion.

“Since we began this effort, one of our main goals was to provide jobs to the Iraqi people and stimulate the economy through the rebuilding of their infrastructure,” Adm. Nash said. “We are taking that message to these areas to help the Iraqi people earn a decent living and bring a solid foundation for their local economies to grow.”

The tour is scheduled to last over a three-day period and other locations are scheduled to follow.
