Assignment of Code "G4" for Pakistan Counterinsurgency Capability Fund (PCCF) when transferred into Pakistan Counterinsurgency Fund (PCF) Letters of Offer and Acceptance (LOAs), DSCA Policy 09-40, [SAMM E-Change 143]
This memorandum updates SAMM Chapter 4, Table C4.T2., Country, International Organization, and Regional Codes and FMS Eligibility, to add code "G4" to track FY2010 PCCF, provided under the Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2009 (P.L. 111-32), when transferred into PCF. These funds will remain available until September 30, 2011.
The funds will be used to provide assistance for Pakistan to build and maintain the counterinsurgency capability of Pakistan's security forces (including the Frontier Corps), to include program management services and the provision of equipment, supplies, services, training, and facilities and infrastructure repair, renovation, and construction.
The funds may be transferred by the Secretary of State to the Department of Defense or other Federal departments or agencies to support counterinsurgency operations. Public Law 111-32 allows for the PCCF funds time availability to be retained after transfer; PCCF funds that are transferred to DoD will be available for obligation through September 30, 2011. To differentiate the transferred PCCF funds from funds appropriated under the PCF, the country code "G4" will be used for the transferred PCCF funds. Per DSCA Policy 09-31, the country code for PCF is "G2."
As a matter of policy, all Pseudo LOA documents using the "G4" country code should be expended as well as fully reconciled and closed on or before July 31, 2016.
The Defense Security Cooperation Agency must authorize and will assign use of this code for Pseudo LOA documents. The following information applies:
|Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2009 (Public Law 111-32) Pakistan Counterinsurgency Capability Fund (PCCF)(FY2009 Supplemental Funds), as transferred into Pakistan Counterinsurgency Funds (PCF)||G4||CE||NR||AECA Only||N/A|
This change will be included in the automated version of the SAMM found on the DSCA Web Page as SAMM E-Change 143.
If you have any questions concerning this guidance, please contact Mr. Kidd Manville, DSCA-STR/POL, firstname.lastname@example.org, (703) 604-6594.

Any sole source purchases must be justified and approved in accordance with other statutory authority found in title 10 U.S.C. using procedures applicable to United States Government appropriated-funded purchases.
