Iraq, which needs about 12,000 schools over the next few years to meet the local need for the education sector, has contracted with two Asian investment companies to build 8,000 schools as a first phase. Recently, an investigation revealed that the contracts with these companies included the division of projects and their distribution within sub-contracts for a group of local investors, which leads to an increase in the cost of construction and depletion of funds allocated for the construction of schools.

NIHR, which closely follows the construction stages of these schools, calls on government agencies to tighten monitoring and evaluation of these projects, starting from the stage of contracting to the stages of completion and conformity with quality standards. As well as dealing transparently by preventing these companies from transferring contracts to local investors to preserve public money as well as gain foreign expertise for the local staff working within these companies.
