The effects of the 1990-1991 Gulf War were both immediate and long-term — and the task of calculating the damages, immense. To oversee the latter, the Government of Kuwait established the Public Authority for Assessment of Compensation for Damages Resulting from Iraqi Aggression (PAAC). The PAAC turned to Adjusters International to help prepare its war reparations submissions to the United Nations.
The six-month project required the integration of a wide range of activities, including developing the actual United Nations claims forms, establishing field claim offices, receiving over 150,000 individual claims from Kuwaiti citizens and the preparation of consolidated claim verification reports.
… I would like to seize this opportunity to thank you and all the … staff for their commitment in terms of time and resources to ensure that the tasks were accomplished in a timely fashion.
As an authority, we have yet a long way to go, however, I am sure with the transfer of Adjusters International’s specialized skills and knowledge to PAAC adjusting counterparts, we will overcome any hurdles.
On behalf of the PAAC Management and the other Authority staff, I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to the members of the Adjusters International team, who have proved by their perseverance, endurance and specialized skills, that almost nothing is impossible …
