ABSTRACT

Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA): Origin, Characteristics, and Institutional Authorities [April 29, 2004]   [open pdf - 165KB]

"Responsibility for overseeing reconstruction in post-conflict Iraq initially fell to the Office of Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance (ORHA). Established in early 2003, ORHA was headed by Lieutenant General Jay M. Garner, U.S. Army (ret.). By June 2003, ORHA had been replaced, or subsumed, by the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA), which is led by Ambassador L. Paul Bremer III. S. 2127, the Stabilization and Reconstruction Civilian Management Act of 2004, is pending in the 108th Congress. If enacted, it would establish an Office of International Stabilization and Reconstruction within the Department of State, which would be responsible for, among other things, monitoring unstable situations around the world, planning for reconstruction crises, and coordinating with relevant executive agencies to develop interagency contingency plans. This report will be updated as events warrant."
