On 13 February 2001, the Secretary-General wrote to the President of the Security Council, Ambassador Sad Ben Mustapha (Tunisia), advising of his approval of the distribution plan for phase IX, submitted by the Government of Iraq on 4 February, on the understanding that its implementation would be governed by resolutions 986 (1995), 1281 (1999), 1284 (1999) and 1302 (2000), 1330 (2000) and the Memorandum of Understanding concluded on 20 May 1996 between the United Nations and the Government of Iraq and would be without prejudice to the procedures followed by the Security Council Committee established by resolution 661 (1990).

A foreseen budget of more than $5.55 billion for the humanitarian programme is spread over 12 sectors countrywide, including an allocation of $600 million for oil industry spare parts and equipment and $387 million to meet the needs of especially vulnerable groups. Over $1.27 billion is earmarked for the food sector, to cover a daily food ration of 2,472 kilocalories per person per day, while $300 million is set aside for the purchase of medicines and medical supplies.
