SUBJECT :

Training Programs Policy Update for the Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM), DSCA Policy 06-24, [SAMM E-Change 43]

This memorandum updates the Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM) to add information on National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) training programs.

Effective immediately, the SAMM, Chapter 10, is updated as follows:

  1. Add the following entry to Table C10.T1., "Legislation for International Training:"

    Legislation Subject
    10 U.S.C. 443 (reference (di)) Imagery Intelligence and Geospatial Information: Support for Foreign Countries
  2. Add a new paragraph to the end of Section C10.7.:

    C10.7.18. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) International Program. NGA conducts specialized training in geospatial intelligence at the National Geospatial-Intelligence College (NGC). NGC accepts foreign students through FMS and IMET. Eligible foreign governments may receive tuition-free training through NGA's bilateral agreements. In the bilateral program, sponsor governments must cover per diem and travel expenses for their students. Security Assistance Offices abroad should process bilateral students in the same manner as FMS and IMET students using the Travel Management System, except for annotating on the International Travel Orders that the training is tuition-free in accordance with the bilateral agreement.

These changes will be included in the automated version of the SAMM found on the DSCA Web Page as SAMM E-Change 43. If you have questions concerning this policy, please contact Mr. Brion Midland, DSCA STR/POL, at (703) 601-3672 or e-mail: brion.midland@dsca.mil.
