The records in this series were transferred to the Archives from both the International Economics Department (IEC) and the Poverty Reduction and Economic Management Network (PREM). In the case of the latter, Masood Ahmed did not immediately transfer all of the records in his possession upon his move to PREM. When the records were ultimately transferred to the Archives in 1998, they were accompanied by records he created and received while serving as Vice President of PREM. These records have been placed inthe Records of the Poverty Reduction and Economic Management Network (WB IBRD/IDA PREM).
