oil for food

As of November 21, the UN's Oil for Food Program will be shifted to the Coalition Provisional Authority. Approximately 60% of Iraqis have relied on this program to bring food to their tables.
The United Nations transfers administration of the Iraqi Oil-for-Food Program to the Coalition Provisional Authority and Iraqi officials November 22.

The transfer will shift responsibility to the CPA and Iraqi authorities for humanitarian programs funded by oil revenues, for assets ranging from schools to power stations and other infrastructure and for all contracts with infrastructure suppliers.
The CPA has a webpage on the transition. Not much info though. We're surprised the program is ending with so little mention in the news.
