MEMORANDUM FOR :

SEE DISTRIBUTION

SUBJECT :

Revision of Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM) Section C11.10.11., Lease Amendments, DSCA 08-12 [SAMM E-Change 104]

Effective May 15, 2008, Section C11.10.11. in Chapter 11 of the SAMM is deleted in its entirety and replaced with the attached text. This change clarifies the scope of changes to leases that can be done via an Amendment. It further clarifies that new line items cannot be added to a lease with an effective date other than the effective date of the original lease, as line item duration is calculated from that date.

This change will be included in the automated version of the SAMM found on the DSCA Web Page as SAMM E-Change 104. If you have questions concerning this policy or the SAMM, please contact Mr. Mike Slack, DSCA STR/POL, at (703) 601-3842 or e-mail: michael.slack@dsca.mil.

Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM), E-Change 104
Lease Amendments

C11.10.11. Lease Amendments. Lease Amendments (Figure C11.F18.) may be used to extend or change existing leases. Such changes may include variations or updates to payment schedules, Schedule A items, or periods of performance; however, a Lease Amendment may not be used to add new or additional items to the Schedule A with an effective date different from the effective date of the lease. An increase in scope in this way requires a new lease. Each Amendment includes the original lease designator and undergoes the same staffing process as the original lease. As with original leases, a cover memorandum is included when the draft lease Amendment is electronically provided to DSCA for coordination and countersignature. If a lease for less than 1 year is amended so that the total period of the original lease and the Amendment(s) equals or exceeds 1 year, the Amendment must be notified to the Congress before it can be offered.
