Audit of USAID/Iraq’s Elections Administration Support Program.
Fiscal Year: 2011
In September 2004, USAID/Iraq awarded $40 million to the Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening under a cooperative agreement to provide electoral technical assistance to the Independent High Electoral Commission. The consortium authorized the International Foundation for Election Systems to conduct the program. The agreement was from September 1, 2004, to January 31, 2006. However, the amount and period of the agreement were later modified for a total amount of $103 million and an end date of December 31, 2010.
The Iraq Elections Administrative Support Program provides technical assistance to the Independent High Electoral Commission, which has exclusive authority in Iraq to announce, implement, and deliver regulations, rules, and procedures related to referendums and elections. The Commission is also responsible for ensuring that Iraqis, including those out of country, can participate in decision-making processes.
This audit will determine whether USAID/Iraq’s Elections Administration Support Program has increased professional and institutional capacity over the election cycle, thus reducing the need for international assistance.
