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 - 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.
