? Since May 2003, CPA has reinstated landline telephone service for 178,840 subscribers.

    CPA continues to make progress in restoring service to customers, especially in Baghdad.

? The following paragraphs delineate the number of landline and cell phone subscribers in Iraq,

    and compare them to pre-war estimates. The chart below shows the number of active

    landline subscribers in April 2003, the current number of active landline subscribers, the

    number of landline subscribers reinstated post-conflict (since May 2003), and the number of

    formerly active landline subscribers who remain without service (excluding the three

    Northern governorates).

    ? The three new cell phone companies in Iraq (Asia Cell, Iraqna, and Atheer in the North, 178,840Central, and South respectively) continue to enroll new cell phone subscribers. Currently, in

    93979Mosul, Sulaymaniyah, and Kirkuk, there are 153,784 cell phone subscribers. In Baghdad,

    there are 135,000 cell phone subscribers; and in Basra, Al Kut, Amarah, Samawah, and

    Nasiriyah there are 45,083 cell phone subscribers.


    ? There are now 761,440 active landline telephone subscribers in Iraq, compared to 833,000 153000

    subscribers pre-war. The total number of telephone subscribers in Iraq, including the cell

    5200phone subscribers, is 1,095,307, which is 31.6 percent greater than the number of active

    landline subscribers pre-war. 0

    ? The penetration rate (the number of active landline telephone subscribers as a percentage of

    96500the population) is 2.94 percent (using an estimated population of 25.9 million).

    III. Provide Food Security for all Iraqis Enhance capacity of Ministry of Agriculture; Assure supply of inputs; Strengthen research

    system; Ensure adequate stocks for Public Distribution System (PDS); Monitor food security;

    Hand over administration of system in the North; Initiate reform of rations basket;

    Environmental initiatives

? The following chart shows the percentage of estimated requirements of stocks for the 12

    public distribution goods that Iraqis receive under the PDS until the end of May. The

    percentage of estimated requirements are categorized into opening stocks (amount on hand),

    and scheduled arrivals for goods prior to July 1 procured under existing contracts from the 200.0%

    Oil for Food Program, the Ministry of Trade (MOT), and the World Food Program 180.0%(WFP). The PDS stocks in the following chart are calculated as a percentage of two months

    160.0%(April-May) estimated demand, plus a one-month buffer stock (CPA goal by May

    1). Having 100 percent of each commodity will ensure that the food rations are available 140.0%

    through May, including at least a one-month on hand buffer stock for each commodity. 120.0%

? Note: Oil for Food (OFF) unconfirmed contracts are those contracts for which a valid letter

    of credit exists but no shipping documentation has yet been received by the Oil for Food

    coordination center. As OFF contracts are fulfilled they are replaced by MOT and WFP


? CPA projects that no shortages will occur in the April and May rations given the new

    procurements of food basket commodities by both WFP and MOT, including accelerated

    delivery schedules for the commodities where stocks have been low. However, MOT faces

    problems in providing updated, accurate stock information on a weekly basis. These

    problems stem from difficult communications links between the governorates and Baghdad,

    as well as the need to upgrade inventory control procedures. CPA is addressing these

    challenges as part of its handover strategy.

? Pulses are expected to continue to decline because of the warming months ahead, making it

    more difficult to store them for extended periods. They will be replaced by tomato paste and

    canned cheese.

? The following chart shows the current PDS stocks and scheduled commodity arrivals as a

    percentage of total requirements from April until transition on July 1. The CPA goal is to

    provide sufficient ration stocks for July, plus a three-month buffer. On the graph below, 100

    percent of opening stocks in each commodity category indicates that this goal has been

    achieved. While substantial additional shipments of most food basket commodities have

    been procured, they are not shown as these shipments will arrive after July 1.

    ? Analysis of the food pipeline shows that, with the exception of tea, full rations are projected

    to be delivered this month. Tea will be cut to a half ration (100 grams per person), because

    tea shipments will arrive in late April -- too late to be included in this month’s rations. May

    tea rations are expected to again be at the usual 200 grams per person amount.

    ? The first version of a comprehensive and integrated Allocation Plan has been developed in a

    two-day working session involving officials of the Ministry of Trade (MOT) and WFP. This

    plan identifies the food allocation needs for all eighteen governorates, according to updated

    population figures and ration requirements. It creates three principal regions (North, Central,

    South) within Iraq and identifies which of the corridors (Iraqthrough Umm Qasr, Jordan,

    Syria, and Turkey) can be used to supply commodities for these regions. The flow of

    commodities is based on a strategy to build a three-month buffer stock in all governorates by

    the end of June, as well as on shipping and transportation factors. Procurement decisions

    now being taken by MOT will play a key role in ensuring that delivery schedules are met.

    ? The MOT is forming a two-track Logistics Unit Operations Center to manage the flow of

    commodities forecasted under the comprehensive Allocation Plan. Track one, the Rome

    Track, will focus on training MOT officials to ensure that commodities are shipped on time

    and according to specifications, arrive timely in the points of entry best suited for fulfilling

    the Allocation Plan, and meet all border requirements, as well as guarantee there is adequate

    accountability to ensure that losses and damage are maintained within an acceptable level.

    Track two, the Baghdad Track, will develop an action plan to ensure that the MOT facilities,

    support and other staff, equipment and technology are adequate, identified and operational

    within the next two months. One important element is the establishment of a simple

    communications and reporting network for all governorates, based on High Frequency radio

    transmissions and laptop computers that can transmit both voice and digital data.

    ? The MOT continues to work with the Ministry of Transportation to increase the wheat

    offloading capacity at Umm Qasr port. Options to increase capacity include repair of

    existing off-loading equipment, rental of additional off-loading equipment, and possible use

    of other ports to ensure recently-procured wheat enters the national food distribution system.

IV. Improve Quality and Access to Healthcare

    Develop health care organizations, management, and infrastructure; Train health care

    professionals; Secure system; Public health; Pharmaceuticals logistic support; Strategic


    ? The Ministry of Health (MOH) established an Operations Center (Ops Center) to coordinate,

    direct, and respond to health issues. The Ops Center is manned 24 hours a day during

    contingencies and has multiple telephone connections for hospitals in Baghdad and

    throughout the country. The Minister plans to maintain the Ops Center room in a stand-by

    status whenever there is not an active contingency.

    ? The Ministry remains well poised to respond to further healthcare needs resulting from

    terrorist attacks or combat action. They have over 2,700 units of blood on hand to distribute

    where needed and have repositioned medical supplies to Najaf and Fallujah to deal with the

    increased workload at those two locations.

? The Ministry coordinated a 34 ambulance convoy, led by the Director General of Inspection,

    Dr. Adel Abdullah, to travel to Fallujah to bring supplies and evacuate injured patients to

    Baghdad hospitals for specialized care. The movement was coordinated through CPA and

    the Coalition Joint Task Force 7 (CJTF-7) to allow easier transit of coalition checkpoints.

    V. Reconstitute Oil Infrastructure

    Production/Exports; Product Supply; Security; Structural Reform

? The graph below shows the daily crude oil production in Iraq over the past nine months. The

    dashed black line is the current production target goal of 2.5 million barrels per day (MBPD).

? The following table shows the four main fuels in Iraq (diesel, kerosene, liquefied petroleum

    gas [LPG], and gasoline), the estimated total national daily demand for each, and the

    percentage of fuel supply that is on hand (weekly average) out of total demand. Diesel

    supplies are high because the Defense Energy Support Center, which took over fuel imports

    from Kellogg, Brown and Root on April 1, is increasing its expected imports, mostly from

    Turkey, in order to build stocks to avert the risk of a diesel shortage. Their imports are

    averaging 7.598 million liters (ML) per day with a goal of 6.8 ML per day, even though

    Kuwaiti imports were shut down for four days due to convoy insecurity problems.

? Temperature has been rather mild recently, so demand for kerosene is higher than projected.

    In addition, production of refined products has shifted towards benzene and diesel in order to

    build stocks rapidly. However, as the weather gets hotter, CPA Oil will continue to monitor

    demand and adjust as required. Furthermore, as fewer people travel due to the increased

    level of instability, fuel (benzene and diesel) demand has decreased, resulting in rising stock

? The chart below shows the days of supply on hand on April 16 for each of the four main fuel

    products in Iraq. The CPA goal remains to have 15 days of supply (DOS) for each fuel on

    50hand nationwide. CPA met this target for kerosene.

VI. Improve Quality and Access to Higher Education

    Oversee the basic administrative functions of higher education systems; Reform and reconstruct

    higher education institutions; Reintegrate the higher education institutions in the North with the

    rest of the country; Reintegrate Iraqi students, scholars, and scientists into the broader

    intellectual community; Launch a review and reform of the curriculum in all disciplines; Provide

    access to essential information

    ? US universities are increasing their assistance to Iraqi institutions of higher learning. Baylor

    has entered into a partnership with Dohuk University. Stony Brook University is working

    with Baghdad and Mosul Universities in Archeology and with Baghdad, Mosul, Basra, and

    Mustansiriyah Universities in Environmental Health. The University of Hawaii has a team at

    both Dohuk and Mosul working with their Colleges of Agriculture. The Mississippi

    Consortium for International Development, which includes Mississippi Valley State and

    Jackson State, are also at Mosul and Dohuk. Universities from both Europe and the US are

    working under the leadership of DePaul University with the Law Colleges at Basra, Baghdad

    and Sulaimani Universities. In addition, the University of Oklahoma is heading a team of

    universities in partnership with Salahaddin University in Erbil, Al Anbar, Babil and Basra

    Universities, and the University of Technology in Baghdad.

? The Lounsbery Foundation, which funds education in science and technology, has awarded a

    grant for a project entitled ―2004 Summer Faculty Development Seminars in Iraq. Courses

    in agro-business, forensic archeology, molecular biology, communication engineering,

    computer engineering, computer science, international economics, electric power engineering,

    environmental science, medicine, clinical teaching of nursing science, technologies and

    economics of downstream industries as related to oil and gas, physics, chemistry, and
