DEFENSE SECURITY COOPERATION AGENCY
MEMORANDUM FOR :
Addition of Fiscal Year (FY) 2009 and FY 2010 Authorities to the Coalition Readiness Support Program (CRSP), Code "E7", DSCA Policy 10-19 [SAMM E-Change 160]
The Coalition Readiness Support Program (CRSP), a subset of Coalition Support Funds, is authorized to provide specialized training, or loan of supplies and equipment on a non-reimbursable basis to coalition forces supporting U.S. military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. The U.S. Government will retain title to the equipment and transfer custody to coalition forces as necessary.
The Code "E7" as identified in Table C4.T2., Country, International Organization and Regional Codes, and FMS Eligibility, is used to track funds provided for CRSP. All CRSP funds are authorized by either the Supplemental Appropriations Act (War Supplemental), P.L 110-252, FY 2008, the Supplemental Appropriations Act, P.L. 111-32, FY 2009 or DOD Appropriations Act, P.L. 111-118, FY 2010. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) must authorize use of this code for Pseudo LOA documents. The DSCA Programs Directorate, Building Partnership Capacity (BPC) Division, will notify the Implementing Agency as to which public law applies to a case, and request that the public law be entered in DSAMS case remarks. This will enable the Case Writing Division to apply the notes that correspond to the correct appropriation. Revise the referenced memorandum and SAMM Table C4.T2. as follows:
|Coalition Readiness Support Program (CRSP) cases||E7||NR||NR||No||N/A|
This change will be included in the automated version of the SAMM found on the DSCA web page as SAMM E-Change 160.
Attached are the revised LOA notes and instructions for CRSP Pseudo LOAs funded with appropriations available to the Department of Defense that will remain available until expended.
If you have any questions concerning the attached guidance for preparing CRSP Pseudo LOAs, please contact Mr. Kent Bell, STR/POL, firstname.lastname@example.org, (703) 604-6612. The overall points of contact for CRSP are CAPT Paul Verrastro, OPS/EAF, email@example.com, (703) 601-3674, and John Sannar, PGM/BPC, firstname.lastname@example.org, (703) 604-6629.

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.
