Many of the normal rules governing Government of Kuwait ("GOK") procurements were waived in the initial phases of postwar recovery. Contracts were awarded to large firms on a cost-plus basis and certain agency requirements were waived. It is unclear how long this policy will continue in the various areas of Kuwaiti procurement. The bulk of the postwar procurement policy is likely to closely resemble the pre-war contracting procedures discussed below.
