REFERENCE :

 

  1. DSCA Memorandum dated November 23, 2010, Subject: Assignment of Code "G9" for Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 Pakistan Counterinsurgency Capability Fund (PCCF), DSCA Policy 10-66 [SAMM E-Change 173]

 

This memorandum revises the referenced memorandum to replace the FY2011 Continuing Appropriations Authority (CAA) (P.L. 111-242) with FY2011 CAA (P.L. 111-322).

FY2011 PCCF funds will be obligated upon signature of an FAA, Section 632(b) Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) and transferred into the FMS Trust Fund. FY11 CAA funds remain available until expended.

Once the CAA expires, this memorandum, to include the instructions for preparing "G9" cases and LOA notes, will be revised to cite the new appropriations public law. All "G9" cases in any phase of the LOA process, development, writing, or review, will need to be revised and all implemented cases will need to be modified prior to case closure to reflect the FY2011 final appropriation. As a matter of policy, all LOA documents using the "G9" code should be expended, as well as fully reconciled and closed, on or before July 31, 2017.

Case preparation instructions and notes are attached to this memorandum and will be included in the automated version of the SAMM found on the DSCA Web Page as SAMM E-Change 181. Table C4.T2 of the automated version of the SAMM is revised as follows:
