Mem 15: Amendment to CPA Memorandum 4


(CPA/MEM/19 August 2003/04)

Pursuant to my authority as Administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA), and
under the laws and usages of war, and consistent with relevant U.N. Security Council resolutions,
including Resolutions 1483 and 1511 (2003) and 1546 (2004),

Noting that the Coalition Provisional Authority will dissolve on June 30, 2004 and that full
governance authority of Iraq will transfer to the Iraqi Interim Government on that date,

Recognizing that on June 30, 2004 the Iraqi Interim Government will assume control over all
funds placed into the Development Fund for Iraq,

Acknowledging that the Coalitional Provisional Authority has entered into contracts on behalf of
the people of Iraq and that many of these contracts require continued performance and payment
from the Development Fund for Iraq after June 30, 2004,

Understanding that continued performance and payment of sums due under these contracts after
June 30, 2004 are critical to the redevelopment and reconstruction of Iraq,

Desiring to amend Coalition Provisional Authority Memorandum 4, Contracts and Grant
Procedures, (CPA/MEM/19 August 2003/04), to provide for the orderly transition of authority
over the Development fund for Iraq from the Coalition Provisional Authority to the Iraqi Interim

I hereby promulgate the following:

Section 1
Powers of Iraqi Interim Government

Section 4 of Coalition Provisional Authority Memorandum 4, Contracts and Grant Procedures,
(CPA/MEM/19 August 2003/04) is amended to read as follows:

(5) The Minister of Finance may designate the Director, Program Management Office of the
Coalition Provisional Authority, or, following the transfer of full governance authority to
the Iraqi Interim Government of Iraq, the Chief of Mission of the United States Embassy,
Baghdad and/or the Commander of the Multi-National Force-I, with responsibility to
monitor and confirm performance, certify and/or make payments, and otherwise
administer contracts or grants funded with monies from the Development Fund for Iraq
(a) were entered into on or before June 30, 2004 by the Coalition Provisional Authority
or the Multi-National Force-Iraq in accordance with United Nations Security Council
Resolution 1483 and implementing regulations;
CPA/MEM/[ ] June 2004/15
