According to <i>Al-Mendhar</i> newspaper, the Iraqi Planning Minister, Mehdi al-Hafedh, launched in Amman, Jordan, a training course aimed at qualifying Iraqi officials to manage foreign aid in Iraq. The Synergy’s Donor Assistance Database (DAD) enables the broad spectrum of users involved in the reconstruction process in Iraq to capture the most critical data on international assistance pledges and funding disbursements and helps track and assess how assistance efforts are meeting Iraqi national development requirements.

 

"The Donor Assistance Database is an important element for the Coalition Provisional Authority in our support of Iraq's transition to self-government," said Don Harrison, Special Assistant to the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Networks and Information Integration, which is charged with establishing and improving the CPA's information flow. "Synergy's Donor Assistance Database will enable the senior leadership involved in the reconstruction process in Iraq to capture and effectively manage critical information on international assistance pledges and funding disbursements."
