The Nineveh Project
Dear Tahrir (aka Tom),

On July 10, 2012, the US Government Accountability Office (GAO) finally released their findings regarding the Department of State and USAID spending on minorities in the Nineveh Plains Region of Iraq.

For several years we have reported legislative successes in having money appropriated for Assyrians (also known as Chaldeans and Syriacs) and other minorities in the Nineveh Plains region of Iraq by the US Congress. In November of 2010, after the attack on the Our Lady of Salvation Church in Baghdad, allies and advocates of Assyrians in Congress requested that the GAO conduct an audit of USAID and the Department of State to find out how the allocated funds had actually been spent.

So, where has this money actually gone? AANC, in coordination with the Iraq Sustainable Democracy Project and Congressional Members, sought to put pressure on USAID and Dept of State to find out:

GAO Findings:

“GAO found that the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) could not demonstrate how the projects that it reported to Congress met the provisions of the 2008 directive because of three weaknesses. First, USAID documents—specifically, the list of projects the agency submitted to Congress—linked only $3.8 million of the $14.8 million in assistance (26 percent) directly to the Ninewa plain region. Second, USAID documents generally did not show whether the projects included minority groups among the beneficiaries of the assistance and specifically whether $8 million of assistance was provided for internally displaced families. Third, USAID officials and documents did not demonstrate that the agency used unobligated prior year Economic Support Fund (ESF) funds to initiate projects in response to the 2008 directive.

USAID and the Department of State (State) generally could demonstrate how they met the 2008 supplemental and 2010 directives. According to USAID and State documents, the agencies approved $26.9 million in assistance—primarily in essential services and humanitarian assistance—to meet the 2008 supplemental and 2010 directives’ provisions to spend up to $10 million for each directive to assist religious and ethnic minority groups in Iraq…In addition, as directed by Congress, the U.S. embassy in Baghdad designated staff at the embassy to oversee and coordinate assistance to minority groups in 2008.”

So what does this mean to you and me?
AANC is committed to pursuing legislation that helps Assyrians in Iraq. We now know that USAID and the Department of State did not do their job in spending Congressionally allocated funds for minorities in the Nineveh Plains region. This means we will be calling on you again over the next few months to reach out to your elected officials to ensure that future spending on Assyrians in Iraq is never again misspent. The US military may have left Iraq, but development is just beginning - keep your voices heard, and keep Assyrians relevant in Iraq.
