 Is the CPA a federal agency? - By Eric Umansky - Slate Magazine
The Coalition Provisional Authority, Proconsul Paul Bremer's outfit, is in charge, of course.
The confusion—which, the report notes, raises questions about "whether, and to what extent, CPA might be held accountable for its programs, activities, decisions, and expenditures"—stems from the White House, which hasn't released information delineating the CPA's authority, structure, or place in government.
And there's another consequence: By not clearly defining the CPA specifically as a federal agency—the report notes that the administration repeatedly refers to the CPA as an "entity," "group," and "activities" but not as an "agency"—the CPA is not subject to the government's accountability and disclosure rules.
