Agricultural Rehabilitation Division - Program Analysis and Control Branch Executive Office - Country Files

The agricultural rehabilitation planning work started under OFRRO, and the Division was established as a part of the UNRRA Bureau of Supply early in 1944.
The functions of the Division, outlined in A.O. No. 8, 15 April 1944, were to prepare requirements estimates; negotiate allocations of supplies; develop specifications and standards for supplies to be purchased; cooperate with other UNRRA divisions in achieving orderly, balanced programs, analyzing relevant reports and data, providing advice and information on agricultural commodities, and developing time schedules; and negotiate with national procurement agencies in arranging for purchase and deliveries.
At the peak of operations (about July 1946), the Division consisted of the Office of the Director and five major Branches: Field Services, Agriculture (and Fisheries) Equipment, livestock, General Farm Supplies, and Program Analysis and Control, each broken into a number of sections and units. A Records and Shipping Section, at that time a part of the Office of the Director, seems later to have been incorporated with the Progress Control Section of the Program Analysis and Control Branch.

Industrial Rehabilitation Division - Office of the Chief - Fuel Branch - Subject and Country Files

As first conceived, the Division of Industrial Rehabilitation was a separate entity within UNRRA, responsible directly to the Director General. Not until 26 June 1944 was it established as a division within the Bureau of Supply, combining the responsibilities therefore assigned to the Division of Industrial Rehabilitation, the Division of Industrial Equipment of the Bureau of Supply, and the Division of Raw Materials of the Bureau of Supply. A structure for the division was devised consisting of a Requirements and Supply Section and a Technical Section. Subsequently this organizational structure was changed and commodity sections established.
The supplies provided by UNRRA in the industrial rehabilitation program can be divided into four broad categories:
(1) Highway, railway, and water transport equipment.
(2) Coal and other fuel, and lubricants.
(3) Materials for the restoration of public utilities, for provision of shelter, and for the repair of highways.
(4) Materials and equipment necessary for the restoration of essential industries.
In brief, the duties and responsibilities of this division were as follows:
To collect and analyze all necessary information for the preparation of requests for allocations of supplies, including available information on the state of industry and condition of industrial plants.
To examine import programs submitted by both paying and non-paying governments and to suggest substitutes or changes in these programs.
To examine the capacities of countries and decide which are best suited to produce and supply materials and equipment for the relief and rehabilitation of liberated areas.
To develop specifications and standards and to prepare the necessary procurement orders for materials, equipment and supplies which are to be produced.
To make arrangements with national procurement authorities for the timely scheduling and delivery of the commodities to be procured.
To establish pools of equipment and material and to determine priorities.
To act as technical adviser and consultant to the Administration; to cooperate fully with the Standing Technical Committee on Industrial Rehabilitation and its Sub-committees.

Office of Public Information

Public information work in UNRRA began with a small staff taken over from OFRRO which worked at the Atlantic City Council session of November 1943.
The headquarters staff in early 1946 numbered more than sixty, who were grouped in a Director's Office; Branches for Writing and Editing, Regional Operations, and Area Service; and Sections dealing with Radio, Organized Groups, Visual Media, Trade Press, and Magazines. The functions of the Office are sufficiently evident from these titles.
Because of the nature of the work, the records kept by the office consisted mainly of routine administrative files and preliminary drafts of releases and other publicity materials. Much of this was destroyed by UNRRA or later by the Archives Section.

Procurement Coordination Division - Executive Office - Subject Files

A Procurement Division was one of three major parts of the early Bureau of Supply (Bureau of Supply Order No. 2, c. Jan. 1944). By April 1944, it had become the Procurement Coordination Branch (later Division) (B.S. Order No. 8). In August 1947 the Division was abolished, its remaining functions being carried on by a new Division of Residual Operations and Records, which was in turn succeeded on 1 April 1948, by the Division of Residual Supply Activities (General Bulletin 277; Administrative Order 103, Supp. 21).
The chief responsibilities of the Procurement Coordination Division were to act in a staff capacity in developing a procurement program and "to assume leadership for procurement work of the Bureau"; to maintain liaison with suppliers, government agencies, UNRRA offices, and supply missions on procurement matters; to assemble data on member countries ability to contribute to UNRRA and assist in negotiations for contributions; and to develop procedures for acquiring war surpluses.
The Division consisted of a Requisition and Budget Control Branch, a Surplus Property Branch, a Latin American Branch, a British Dominions and India Branch, and an Expediting (United States and Canada) Branch. A Direct Purchase Branch, which was a part of the Division until 16 May 1946, was abolished at that time and succeeded by a new Division of Emergency Procurement. The Requisition and Budget Control Branch was changed in January 1947 to the Funding, Budget, and Records Management Branch, under Allan T. Bonnell, who in August became head of the Residual Operations and Records Division.
