LOR Submission Procedures

SAMM Chapter 5, Sections C5.1.3.1., C5.1.3.2., C5.1.3.3., C5.1.3.4., and Table C5.T2. are revised to read as follows:

C5.1.3.1. Significant Military Equipment (SME) Requests. SME requests that originate in-country must be addressed to the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) (Operations Directorate) and the cognizant Department of Defense (DoD) Component with information copies to the DoS (Bureau of Political-Military Affairs) (DoS (PM)), and the Combatant Command. Requests regarding SME that originate with purchaser representatives in the United States must be addressed to DSCA (Operations Directorate) and the cognizant DoD Component with information copies to DoS (PM), and the SCO. If it appears that the DoS (PM) or the SCO are not on distribution for a purchaser's request, the DoD Component must furnish copies to these organizations as quickly as possible.

C5.1.3.2. Non-Significant Military Equipment Requests. Non-SME requests that originate in-country must be transmitted either by the purchaser's authorized representative or the DoD element of the U.S. country team to DSCA (Operations Directorate) and the appropriate DoD Component with information copies to the Combatant Command. Requests originated by foreign representatives of the purchaser in the United States, must be sent to DSCA (Operations Directorate) and the appropriate DoD Component with information copies to the SCO. If it appears that the SCO is not on distribution for a purchaser's request, the DoD Component must furnish copies to the SCO as quickly as possible.

C5.1.3.3. Major Defense Equipment (MDE) Requests. MDE requests must be addressed to DSCA (Operations Directorate) and the appropriate DoD Component. The DoD Component provides the applicable Combatant Command and SCO with a copy or details of the purchaser's request, as appropriate. The U.S. Embassy or SCO must provide the information in Table C5.T1., commonly referred to as the "country team assessment," in the request transmission.

C5.1.3.4. LORs Submitted by Electronic Mail. To send LORs via electronic means, purchasers must provide a list of authorized signers and senders to the Implementing Agency. LORs submitted using electronic means must be submitted through appropriate channels required in subparagraphs C5.1.3.1., C5.1.3.2., and C5.1.3. 3. Purchasers who wish to submit LORs electronically should contact the U.S. Implementing Agency to determine if a file naming convention should be used. Electronic mail attaching the signed LOR is the preferred means of transmission. All electronic LORs must be sent to DSCA (Operations Directorate) at: LOR-DSCA@dsca.mil. Information copies of electronic LORs for DoS (PM) should be sent to: pm-rsat-lor@t.state.gov.
