This is dealt with in the EU novel "Labyrinth of Evil". Master Sifo-Dyas commissioned the Clone Army, presumably with a small down-payment and a blank cheque from the Jedi's own accounts.

Count Dooku (with the assistance of Senator, then Chancellor Palpatine) kitted the army out with fancy hardware and big ships using his own vast personal wealth and any other cash he could lay his hands on:

“Questioned, the Kaminoans were. Furnished much they did.”

“Did they?” Obi-Wan said in surprise. “When?”

“Reticent they were when first to Kamino I went. Only what already they had told you, I heard. That Sifo-Dyas the order placed; that Tyranus the donor clone furnished. That for the Republic the clones were. Seen by the Kaminoans, neither Sifo-Dyas nor Tyranus was. But later, after attacked Kamino was, more I learned from Taun We and Ko Sai. About the payments.”

“From Sifo-Dyas?”

“From Tyranus.”

Although the book isn't G-canon, it's noteworthy that the final 3 episodes of season 3 of Clone Wars were based on this novel.


As to how the Dooku/Palpatine/The Republic/The Jedi were able to afford to create a vast Cloneenormous clone army, it would seem to boil down to a range of payments being sourced from a variety of places:

  • Dooku's vast personal fortune

  • Funds skimmed from the Republic's budget by Palpatine

  • Money taken from the Jedi budget by Sifo-Dias.

  • Money appropriated from the Trade Federation by Dooku

  • Sith funds.
