My names are Dr. Mahmoud Sa'id. I am an Iraqi indigene. I am presently a member
of the Iraq Project and Contracting Office (PCO) formerly known as the Program
Management Office (PMO) in Iraq. The responsibility of this said committee as
it is declared on section 3 (1) (Contracting Authority) of the Coalition
Provisional Authority Order Number 87 (CPA/ORD/14 May 2004/87), states
that;"The authority to obligate government funds, award and sign government
public contracts, enter into and authorize material modifications to such
contracts, and authorize the payment of invoices and claims, shall rest solely
with a qualified government agency or a committee within each governmental unit
or agency, duly appointed under the authority of this Order".
As members of this committee, my colleagues and I have until recently watched
with astonishment how our aforementioned responsibility (mainly choice of
contractor) has been greatly influenced by United States government officials
on the committee. The latter has been very influential on "Who" gets "What", as
it concerns large value contracts. These are by and large contracts whose value
exceeds twenty million United States Dollars ($20m). Contracts with lesser
value, they have habitually left to us to oversee in accordance with the laid
down regulations governing contract matters.
My colleagues and I after much 'brainstorming' have discovered a means through
which we can make some money. In our most recent processing of contract
tenders, we awarded two (2) contracts totaling nearly thirty million ($30m).
These said contracts; we have listed on the CPA-CA Register of Awards. Once a
'Request For Proposal' (RFP) on a project has been developed, it is evidenced
as being identified in a 'contract capacity', by listing it in the CPA-CA
Register of Award. A contractor is at the right time allocated to execute the
job. By next week, it would be time to allocate contractors to these two
aforementioned contracts amongst others. This is the reason why I am contacting
you. We are seeking a bona-fide individual, whom we can negotiate with to
'fill' this key opening (the contractor).
This is our intention for you;
The role would be for you to nominate a company for us to 'fill-in' as the
beneficiary contractor. You have to of course own controlling 'shares' in your
nominated company. As soon as the contractor list is published, you would
in-turn elect to sell the said contract title to a major contractor vast in
Iraqi contracts. We already have a contractor whom we are familiar with, that
can buy the said contract title from you. You might ask why we are not just
going ahead to list this said major contractor as the awardee.
As it concerns Iraqi contracts, there is an extent to which one contracting
firm can be directly awarded several contracts in the same dispensation. Our
nominee is a major player in contracts in Iraq. Based on the extent of
contracts he is handling in Iraq, though he has the capacity to handle more, he
cannot be awarded more jobs directly. He can now only afford to buy contract
titles from those whom have won the right to execute these contracts. The
buying of contract titles in Iraq is a common occurrence these days. A lot of
the contract beneficiaries in Iraq decide to sell to other major contractors
due to the security/safety concerns prevalent here. The fear of kidnapping
mostly does not allow them to execute the contracts themselves.
Following negotiations with our nominee contractor, whom would buy the contract
title in your name, you stand to benefit to the tune of at least Two Million
United States Dollars ($2m). This is achievable within a time frame of twenty
(20) working days. Take note that we have perfectly rehearsed the entire
process to achieve our objective. You only have to signify your interest to
make money with us, to enable us furnish you with the nitty-gritty of the
entire process. Also take note that this transaction is entirely risk-free. You
do not have to set 'foot' in Iraq.
Due to the system of governance in Iraq, transparency and accountability is
assured. All contract data is clearly published on Iraqi government websites.
You would this way, be able to monitor very vital aspects of this transaction.
My colleagues and I await your response to enable our further action. You can
respond through address@hidden
