Dates of existence
The AC/4(PP) chronological series contains the records of the Infrastructure Committee’s Infrastructure Payments and Progress Subcommittee.
In September 1951, the issue of cost-sharing of the second infrastructure slice was temporarily resolved by the Ottawa Agreement entered into by the Council Deputies (see D-D(51)248).
In order to apply the Ottawa Agreement, amended slightly by the Committee on the Provision of Funds for the Second Slice of Infrastructure,
a Payments and Progress Subcommittee was created. Its terms of reference were set out by the Council Deputies on 5 December 1951 (see D-D(51)290-REV).
The Subcommittee was responsible for developing programme budgets approved under certain conditions (definition of the procedures for presenting the quarterly forecasts of the amounts required by the host nations, review of the status of programmes, review and approval of the quarterly forecasts that would serve as the basis for the payment of quarterly contributions). It was also responsible for centralizing and reviewing quarterly reports from the Commands and the national governments that contained information on the infrastructure programme, expenditures and the progress of work. It made the call for infrastructure contributions from the countries, opened the infrastructure accounts, handled central accounting, and monitored advance infrastructure contributions. It produced reports and appropriate recommendations for the guidance of governments. Finally, it was responsible for defining the final project cost accounting procedure and the method for making the necessary adjustments between countries.
The Subcommittee controlled such working groups as the Working Group on Utilities, the Subcommittee on the Review of Financial Reports and the Working Group on Overhead Costs and Tax Exemptions. It continued its work after 1966.
