The amendment allows SIGIR to continue the oversight that CPA-IG had established for
Iraq reconstruction programs and operations. Specifically, SIGIR is mandated with
the oversight responsibility of the use, and potential misuse, of the Iraq Relief
and Reconstruction Fund (IRRF) and all obligations, expenditures, and revenues associated
with reconstruction and rehabilitation activities in Iraq. Stuart W. Bowen, Jr., who served as the CPA-IG
since January 20, 2004, continues as the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction.
SIGIR reports administratively to the
Secretaries of State and Defense. In addition, SIGIR provides quarterly and semi-annual
reports directly to the U.S. Congress.
