U. S. government agencies received more than 2.4 billion from the Development Fund for Iraq DFI to administer and oversee reconstruction contracts for the betterment of the Iraqi people, according to independent audit reports of the Fund prepared for the Government of Iraq GOI and the International Advisory and Monitoring Board. The DFI was established by the Administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority CPA, and recognized by a resolution of the United Nations Council, to be used in a transparent manner to provide for humanitarian needs of the Iraqi people, economic reconstruction and repair of Iraqs infrastructure, continued disarmament of Iraq, cost of Iraqi civilian administration, and other purposes benefiting the people of Iraq. The Department of Defense was one of several U.S. agencies to participate in the DFI program, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers USACE was one of several DoD components to receive DFI funds.
