Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM), E-Change 273
Administrative Changes

  1. Table C11.T6. summarizes legislation associated with Excess Defense Articles (EDA). PL113-276 amended FAA Section 516(g) (22 U.S.C. 2321j) to increase the limit of aggregate current market value of grant EDA to $500,000,000 from $425,000,000 in any single fiscal year. Table C7.T6., should be amended to read:

    FAA, Section 516(g) (22 U.S.C. 2321j)

    The aggregate current market value of grant EDA may not exceed $500,000,000 in any fiscal year. Congress may exclude the value of naval vessel transfers from this limit when it enacts legislation authorizing the transfer of such vessels. DSCA assures the ceiling limit is not exceeded.

  2. Figure C5.F6. provides instructions for preparing a Letter of Offer and Acceptance (LOA). All references to "country" should be replaced with "Security Cooperation Customer".

  3. Taiwan requested to extend the Offer Expiration Date for LOAs to 120 days. Insert the following line into C5.F6.5.

    Security Cooperation Customer Number of Days from
    Implementing Agency Signature to OED

    Taiwan

    120

  4. Delete "FOB-Destination" from Table C9.T4a in the descriptions of "Delivery Term Codes".

  5. The "Principles of Use of Military Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) or Strike-Enabling Technologies to be Used on UASs" case notes in Appendix 6 are revised with the addition of the following as the final paragraph in the Note Usage section of both notes:

    "It is the responsibility of the Implementing Agency to identify in the line description note that the UAS in question is a military UAS, one controlled under the ITAR whether armed or unarmed, and whether a strike-enabling technology is intended for use on a UAS of any type."

  6. Restore to Appendix 6 the note for "Global Positioning System (GPS)/Precise Positioning System (PPS) Security Devices Sold FMS for Integration Into Host Application Equipment," which was inadvertently deleted in Admin Change Memo DSCA 15-13.
