II-VI of the CAIB's Final Report at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2003 on its website, All of the volumes can be downloaded from the website. These volumes contain appendices that provide the supporting documentation for the main text of the Final Report contained in Vol. I, which was released on Aug. 26, 2003.

These appendix materials were working documents. They contain a number of conclusions and proposed recommendations, several of which were adopted by the CAIB in Vol. I.

When there is conflict, Vol. I takes precedence. It alone is the CAIB's official statement.
