The U.S. Agency for International Development confirmed yesterday that BearingPoint Inc., a consulting firm based in McLean, won a one-year contract worth as much as $79.6 million to help rebuild Iraq's economy.
The job includes developing trade regulations, nurturing private businesses and helping build a system to provide social services that before the U.S.-Iraq war had been paid for by the United Nations "oil-for-food" program. The firm will also help build a commercial banking network, develop programs to distribute loans to small farms and businesses, and examine tax policies. Its consultants will work in Iraq's central bank and the ministries of finance and trade, and they may analyze and execute the privatization of government-run industries.
BearingPoint already has received $9 million from USAID to begin work and will request more as it determines the number, complexity and urgency of its tasks. The $79.6 million figure is the most that USAID will pay the company.
