Administrative Changes

  1. The following expired email addresses are updated in the SAMM.

    • DSCA NCR STR Mailbox MTCR USA Weapons address has split into separate service specific addresses:

      • Army : DSCA.NCR.STR.MBX.MTCR-USA-WEAPONS@mail.mil
      • Air Force : DSCA.NCR.STR.MBX.MTCR-USAF-WEAPONS@mail.mil
      • Navy : DSCA.NCR.STR.MBX.MTCR-USN@mail.mil
    • DSCA.CWD@afmc.af.smil.mil is updated to USAF.WRIGHT-PATT.USAF-RSRCMGMT.LIST.AFMC-MBX-CWD-ORG-BOX@mail.smil.mil

    • LOA.OPS@osd.dsca.smil.mil is updated to DSCA.NCR.IT.MBX.LOA-OPS@mail.smil.mil

    • LOA-POL@dsca.osd.smil.mil is updated to DSCA.NCR.IT.MBX.LOA-POL@mail.smil.mil

    • LOA-FPIO@osd.dsca.smil.mil is updated to DSCA.NCR.DBO.MBX.LOA-FPIO@mail.smil.mil

    • EEUM.REPORTS@dsca.mil is updated to DSCA.NCR.BPC.MBX.EEUM-REPORTS@mail.mil

    • EUMHELPDESK@dsca.mil is updated to DSCA.NCR.BPC.MBX.EUM-HELPDESK@mail.mil

  2. Section C5.4.18. includes direction for the processing of emergency cases. The section is updated to advise the IAs to contact the designated Country Portfolio Director (CPD) directly with requests for expedited/emergency processing. This administrative process change deletes the single previous email address used to contact DSCA Operations and replaces it with the respective CPD's individual email address located in the Global Access List on the Defense Enterprise Email system.

    C5.4.18. LOA Document Prioritization. Implementing Agency (IA) requests for prioritization of LOA documents must be sent through the DSCA Country Portfolio Director (CPD) for review within 48 hours after the LOA is determined by the IA to be an emergency/priority. Each request must provide justification why the LOA document should be prioritized ahead of routine cases. Each request will be approved by the Principal Director or Principal Deputy Director, for Security Assistance and Equipping Directorate on a case-by-case basis. The following information must be provided in the request:

    • Desired offer date,
    • How long the document has been in development,
    • Any known reasons for delay, and
    • Any background information on political-military sensitivity or operational issues associated with the LOA document.

    Short Offer Expiration Dates (OEDs) should not be used as justification to prioritize the processing of an LOA document. Prioritization should only be requested if there is a compelling reason to have the LOA document offered in less than the normal processing time. Building Partnership Capacity (BPC) LOA OEDs should follow similar guidelines.

  3. The Department of the Navy's "Action Address for all LORs" listed in Table C5.T2. is updated to the following:

    Department of the Navy
    Navy International Programs Office
    ATTN: 02 Regional Division
    1250 10th St SE, Bldg 200-2nd Floor
    Washington Navy Yard, DC 20374

  4. Chapter 11 includes a paragraph hyperlink reference to the BPC WIF Program website that has been updated as follows: Replacement for the "Concept and Funding Request system" cited in the 2nd sentence. The website is no longer in existence.

    C11.10.6. Budgeting and Financial Execution. ..... Between May and June of each fiscal year, CCMDs submit WIF budget proposals via a collaborative online database called the Concept and Funding Request system https://tsc.eucom.mil. ....
