From May 2003 through June 2004, the Coalition Provisional Authority CPA was responsible for overseeing, directing, and coordinating the relief and reconstruction effort in Iraq. The Project Management Office PMO was established to prioritize and manage projects and provide contract support for U.S.-funded reconstruction projects. In May 2004, to successfully meet the new and formidable challenges after the termination of the CPA and the reestablishment of a sovereign government in Iraq, the President issued National Security Presidential Directive-36 NSPD-36. NSPD-36 stated that after the transition of sovereignty to the Iraqi government, the Department of State DoS would be responsible for all U.S. activities in Iraq through the Ambassador to Iraq. The Department of Defense DoD would be responsible for all U.S. efforts related to security and military operations. On June 28, 2004, when power transferred to the sovereign Iraqi Interim Government, the CPA was officially dissolved. The PMO split into two organizations the Iraq Reconstruction Management Office was responsible for coordinating the reconstruction effort, and the Project and Contracting Office, assumed PMOs project constructionexecution responsibilities.
