Abstract Since 2004, the Congress has authorized almost $4.0 billion for the Department of Defense's (DoD) Commander's Emergency Response Program (CERP) in Iraq, including $100 million for fiscal year (FY) 2011. The CERP's purpose is to enable commanders to respond to urgent humanitarian relief and reconstruction requirements within their areas of responsibility by carrying out programs that will immediately assist the Iraqi people. Over the years, commanders have used CERP funds for reconstruction projects such as the building of schools, roads, health clinics, sewers, as well as non-construction projects such as micro grants for economic development and condolence payments, among other uses. The 2008 Security Agreement between the United States and the Government of Iraq (GOI) requires that all U.S. combat forces withdraw from Iraq by December 31, 2011. U.S. Forces- Iraq (USF-I) repositioned U.S. combat brigades from Iraqi cities, villages, and localities in June 2009 in compliance with the Security Agreement and began transitioning to an advise, train and assist role. As the mission changed, U.S. forces began their withdrawal. The Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR) initiated this review to determine how CERP is being used in support of this changing mission and to determine if there are lessons learned that can be applied to other environments.
