Security Cooperation Education and Training Working Group (SCETWG) Checklist

Section I. Current Year

Country:

 

IMET STL for FY (Current Year)

 

STATE IMET Projected Allocation Ceiling

 

 

1) Is the CTEPP (with annexes) updated and approved by CCMD available for review in the SAN?

 

 

Note: Avoid confusion, harmonize the data in APPENDIX H between Current FY and the Planning FY:

a. Current FY

What is the percentage of women in the armed forces today?

 

What is the percentage of women participation in IMET program?

 

b. Planning FY

What is the percentage of women in the armed forces today?

 

What is the percentage of women participation in IMET program?

 

 

2) Is the Priority A Total “less than or equal to” 100% of the Current FY funding ceiling (planning estimate)?

 

 

Note: If you are over 100%, you need to cut the courses to be at or below 100%. If you have questions about the level ask DSCA for clarification. You need to watch this as you add and drop courses. The IMET SUMMARY REPORT in SCTMS9/REPORTS provides a daily update of all percentages as well as links to the various entries. If the SCO has several E-IMET Courses that begin in the 5th Quarter, CCMD will need to work with MILDEP to identify these as priorities for current year or End of Year funding.

 

3) Are any B Priorities identified for this year?

 

 

Note: If Yes, SCO needs to insure that your CCMD identifies these as a priority for the End of Year Review.

State guidance restricts B priorities to: Invitational PME, E-IMET, or other PME (support as funds are available). State will not consider funding technical or operational training, English language instructor training, or English language labs, books, and publications with EOY IMET funding. Mobile training teams are also not executable in the fifth quarter.

 

4) Are there any priority D’s remaining in the current year STL?

 

 

Note:

  • For Current FY STL, you must move those courses in Priority D to Priority A or B, drop the courses, or move them to the Planning FY STL.

  • See NOTE in item 3. The SCO needs to ensure that Priority B courses meet State’s End of Year (EOY) Policy Guidance in the note above. The order of preference for approval of EOY fund for Priority B courses is: Invitational PME, E-IMET, then “other” PME courses.

 

5) Does the STL have at least 50 percent of the FY Ceiling allocation identified for PME courses?

 

 

Note: 50 % is the minimum – not 49.99%.

 

6) Does the STL have at least 10 percent of the FY Ceiling allocation identified as E-IMET courses?

 

 

Note: 10 % (or 20% if identified by State) is the minimum – not 9.99% or 19.99%.

 

7) Does the STL have less than 25 percent of their STL Ceiling allocation identified for technical/operational courses?

 

 

Note: 25% is the maximum, not 25.01%.

 

8) Has State identified any legal or policy restrictions that affect this countries STL this year?

 

 

Note: Talk to the CCMD POC to help plan for the remaining FY or to find out if you have restrictions.

 

9) Are there any inappropriate courses in this STL? (See SAMM Section C10.6.5.)

 

 

Note: If yes, identify the specific courses below.

Courses:

 

 

10) Does the country have any high cost technical training programs in the STL?

 

 

Note: If yes, identify the specific courses below.

High-cost training is any training or any single course of training with a tuition cost of $50,000 or higher. With the exception of Professional Military Education (PME) and postgraduate education, IMET funds are not used for high-cost training. Submit waiver request to CCMD for DSCA approval of high cost training on a case-by-case basis.

Courses:

 

 

11) Does the country have a lot of the same courses in the STL?

 

 

Note: If yes, identify the specific courses below.

You can have no more than 5 allocations for identical technical courses and no more than 10 allocations for identical PME courses.

Courses:

 

 

12) Does the country have any Post Graduate/ Master’s degree programs on their STL?

 

 

Note: If yes, identify the specific courses below.

IMET funds may be used for an IMS to obtain a postgraduate degree at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School or at the Air Force Institute of Technology (with justification). To include Post Graduate/ Master’s degree programs under the IMET program, CCMD and DSCA must concur, and State must approve a waiver prior to programming or making any offer or commitment to the foreign government.

Courses:

 

 

13) Does the country have advanced medical training on their STL?

 

 

Note: If yes, identify the specific courses below.

Courses:

 

 

14) Is there any military police/gendarme training on this STL?

 

 

Note: If yes, identify the specific courses below.

Neither the name given to a unit by the foreign government nor the ministerial authority under which it operates is sufficient to determine whether a particular force is a “police unit.” The determining factor is the nature of the function performed by the person or that persons unit. See SAMM Section C10.6.4.5., for the certification requirement that must be completed by the host nation and maintained by the SCO.

Courses:

 

 

15) Is the country planning to offer IMET funded training to anyone who is NOT part of the military or MOD?

 

 

Note: If yes, identify the specific courses below.

(See SAMM Section C10.6.4.3.1.) Civilian personnel who are not members of the requesting country’s defense establishment or armed forces are not eligible for traditional IMET training, but may be trained under the subset of programs approved as meeting the E-IMET criteria.

IMET PLANNING STL for FY (Current Year)

 

STATE IMET Projected Allocation Ceiling

 

Note: Until the new planning number is input into DSAMS, the IMET SUMMARY REPORT in SC-TMS9/REPORTS provides a daily update of all percentages as well as links to the various entries.

 

16) Is the CTEPP (with annexes) updated and approved by CCMD in the SAN?

 

 

Note: Avoid CONFUSION WITH APPENDIX H DATA BETWEEN Current FY and Planning FY.

APPENDIX A DSCA comment – The IMET budget could stretch farther if the country assumed more responsibility for travel or TLA (Average one way cost is which takes days to reach U.S port of entry). USG pays all transportation and all living allowance.

a.

FY17 - What is the percentage of women in the armed forces today?

 

FY17 – What is the percentage of women participation in IMET program?

FY18 - What is the percentage of women in the armed forces today?

 

FY18 – What is the percentage of women participation in IMET program?

 

 

17) Is the STL Priority A Total 10 percent over the FY Ceiling dollar figure?

 

 

Note: If you are currently over the 110% of your Budget FY planning figure, you need to cut courses to be at or below 110%. If you are not at 110% of your CBJ planning figure, add courses. If you are more that 110%, cut some courses. If you need clarification on the project allocation, contact CCMD Training Manager.

The IMET SUMMARY REPORT in SC-TMS9/REPORTS provides a daily update of all percentages as well as links to the various entries.
