  11. Paragraph C9.6.4. is replaced with the following revised version:

    C9.6.4. Waiver of Tooling Rental Charges for Use of DoD Assets. In cases of direct commercial sales to FMS eligible countries, the contractor submits requests for waiver of tooling rental charges to the contracting officer. If the contracting officer approves the request, it is submitted through contracting channels to DSCA (Strategy Directorate) for a decision. Contracting officers should identify any potential interference with U.S. requirements prior to forwarding a waiver request and assure that the request identifies the total amount of charges involved. For more information please refer to the DFARS (reference (al)), Part 245, Government Property.

     

  12. Paragraph C10.3.5.7. is replaced with the following revised version:

    C10.3.5.7. Specialized English Training (SET). Attendance at SET is required when general ECL requirements have been met and the Implementing Agency determines (based on school house recommendation) that exceptional fluency or specialized vocabularies are essential to safety or effective participation in the course of instruction. The annotation "R" (SET Required) or "A" (SET Advised) appears in the ECL column of the MASL and on the country Standardized Training List (STL) for these courses.

  13. Paragraph C10.5.6.1. is replaced with the following revised version:

    C10.5.6.1. TLA on FMS Cases. The LOA does not include TLA unless approved in writing by DSCA (Operations Directorate) in coordination with DSCA (Programs Directorate) prior to LOA development. If TLA costs are included on the LOA and the case is financed with FMF, U.S. carriers must be used. MILDEPS are authorized to charge an appropriate management fee to administer payment of TLA to international students under FMS cases. The LOA as well as the ITO should also indicate that the TLA paid to the student is limited to the authorized living allowance rates on Table C10.T3. The ITO may authorize the student to travel by U.S. military aircraft and reimburse the USG by direct bill at the non-Government rate.

  14. Paragraph C10.5.6.2.3. is replaced with the following revised version:

    C10.5.6.2.3. Charges for medical care in DoD medical facilities do not apply if the international student and/or authorized dependents are covered by a reciprocal healthcare agreement between the United States and the student's country. When such an agreement exists, the SCO checks item 16b(3) in the ITO and adds the following statement in item 13: "Medical care in DoD facilities is provided under [reference the agreement, date, etc]. Reimbursement for services provided is not required." Note that the agreements vary and may not cover certain categories (e.g., FMS students, civilian students, or dependents) and are applicable only for medical and dental care in DoD medical and dental facilities; therefore, if a training installation does not have a DoD medical facility, the terms of the agreement do not apply and medical care received from civilian healthcare facilities must be paid for by the country, FMS case (if medical care is covered under the FMS case), or medical insurance.

  15. The portion of Figure C10.F1., Combined Education and Training Program Plan (continued), concerning Unique U.S. Service Specific Training Requirements is replaced with the following revised version:

    Figure C10.F1. Combined Education and Training Program Plan (continued)

    1. How has training under the combined education and training program enhanced the professionalism or improved the capabilities of the host country?
    2. How has the combined education and training program, particularly the Expanded IMET program, contributed to effective defense resource management, concepts of civilian control of the military, and respect for internationally recognized human rights?
    3. Give anecdotal examples of how the combined education and training program has furthered U.S. access, interests, or objectives during the past year. Do not carry forward examples from last year. These examples are often quoted in support of Security Assistance training. Effort expended throughout the year to capture anecdotal examples is offset by the value of such examples to promote combined education and training program effectiveness.
    Brief explanation of what is being done to build on successes and correct/improve upon failures. UNIQUE U.S. SERVICE SPECIFIC TRAINING REQUIREMENTS
    Information that specifically elaborates on Service training programs not available in STLs, or elaborates on high-visibility training requirements, or supports major equipment acquisitions.

The Field Studies Program objective is to provide a "real life" view of U.S. society, institutions, and goals, outside the classroom. The Field Studies Program should include discussion with the students about our Government structure, judicial system, the political party system, the role of a free press and other communications media, cultural issues associated with minorities, the purpose and scope of labor unions, our economic system, educational institutions, and the way in which all of these elements reflect the U.S. commitment to the basic principles of internationally recognized human rights.

    C10.3.5.8. Foreign Countries' Responsibility for ELT (IMET-Only). With few exceptions, foreign countries are considered to possess the public and private school, commercial institution, or other resources needed to provide the necessary ELT to meet the ECL levels above. SCOs should encourage the host country to increase their ELT capability above the minimum 55 ECL requirement. Assistance may be provided under the IMET program by training of instructors at DLIELC, by providing English language Mobile Training Teams (MTTs) or Language Training Detachments (LTDs), or by providing appropriate ELT aids and equipment. Details on DLIELC, MTTs, and LTDs are contained in DLIELC English Language Training Support for Security Cooperation Organizations (reference (cb)).

    C12.1. DEFINITION AND PURPOSE - HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE AND MINE ACTION PROGRAMS

    The Defense Security Cooperation Agency's (DSCA) Humanitarian Assistance and Mine Action (HA/MA) programs are assistance programs aimed at alleviating economic or infrastructure deficiencies or other endemic conditions including disease, hunger, pain, or privation that threaten human life, damage to or loss of property, or social or political stability in developing nations. They are designed to supplement or complement the efforts of host nation civil authorities or agencies that have primary responsibility for providing HA/MA. HA/MA programs support United States (U.S.) Forces in their efforts to enhance regional security stability, promote positive public relations and goodwill, improve access and influence with host nation counterparts, bolster indigenous capacity to respond to disasters, provide an example of how a professional military can positively impact the civilian population of the host country and provide training opportunities in operational skills of U.S. forces. HA/MA programs meet these needs by providing the Combatant Commands with a means to carry out peacetime engagement missions, and by augmenting the Combatant Commanders' capabilities to respond to humanitarian crises. The Department of Defense (DoD) must derive some benefit from HA/MA activities. Table C12.T1. summarizes legal references for HA/MA.

  28. Paragraph C12.3.3.2. is replaced with the following revised version:

    C12.3.3.2. HMA Program Process. Any country experiencing the adverse affects of uncleared landmines may request U.S. assistance. The country must formally request help from the DoS through the U.S. Embassy. (The Country Team provides a copy of the request to the regional Combatant Commander.) The DoS brings the request to the interagency Policy Coordinating Committee Subgroup on Humanitarian Mine Action (PCCSG/HMA) chaired by the National Security Council (NSC). The PCCSG/HMA determines if assistance is warranted. DSCA (Programs Directorate) manages, coordinates, and monitors execution of the DoD HMA training operations and related program activities. DSCA (Programs Directorate) assists the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), geographical Combatant Commanders, host countries, and other organizations in planning for, establishing, and executing mine action programs. DSCA (Programs Directorate) reviews budget proposals for all demining-related activities in coordination with ASD(SO/LIC). Figure C12.F2. is a flowchart of the HMA process.

  30. Paragraph C13.2.1. is replaced with the following revised version:

    C13.2.1. DSAMS Business Function. DSAMS functions include recording receipt of Letters of Request (LORs); creating Letters of Offer and Acceptance (LOAs), Amendments, Modifications, Price and Availability (P&A) data, Leases, and Pen and Ink changes; and case implementation. When the case is implemented, case data is passed to MILDEP legacy systems for case execution. See Chapters 5 (FMS Case Development) and 6 (FMS Case Implementation, Execution and Closure) for additional information for case development and execution. As a result of the deployment of the DSAMS Training Module in October 2006, DSAMS has now replaced US Army and US Navy legacy systems as the system of record for the US Army's and US Navy's execution of foreign military training under the applicable Security Cooperation programs. See Chapter 10 (International Training) for additional information on the foreign military training policies DSAMS was built to support. The interfacing Security Assistance Network (SAN), Training Management System (TMS), International Military Student Office (IMSO) Web, and Security Cooperation Organization (SCO) Web have been significantly enhanced in accordance with the DSAMS Training Module deployment. The US Air Force will continue to use their legacy system as the system of record for the US Air Force's execution of foreign military training until that capability can be fully included in DSAMS in the future but the US Air Force will maintain certain reference data in DSAMS for use by SCOs, IMSOs, and the other MILDEPs.
