Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM) E-Change 31, Training Tuition Rates

C10.3.7. Training Tuition Rates. FAA, section 644 (reference (b)) and AECA, section 21 (reference (c)) establish the legal basis for a multi-tier pricing structure for training provided under the U.S. security assistance authorities. DoD 7000.14-R (reference (o)), Volume 15, Chapter 7 addresses training rates and pricing procedures. When a case is fully funded with MAP funds and/or FMS Credit (Non-repayable), the FMS rate is adjusted to exclude military pay and entitlements in accordance with FAA Section 503(a). Countries and organizations are eligible for a specific rate as follows:

C10.3.7.1. FMS Full Rate. Countries and organizations purchasing training via an FMS case and not eligible for one of the FMS pricing categories listed below are charged the FMS Full Rate.

C10.3.7.2. FMS NATO Rate. Countries with a ratified reciprocal pricing agreement with the USG purchasing training via an FMS case are charged the FMS NATO rate. Table C10.T4 lists the countries and effective dates of the reciprocal agreements. Note that some of these countries are also eligible for the FMS Incremental Rate.
