Effective immediately, Program Code "Z6" is assigned to track FY 2017 Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) funds provided to conduct or support a program or programs under the Iraq Train and Equip Fund (ITEF). Section 1222 of the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2017 extends the authority to provide assistance to counter the Islamic state of Iraq and the Levant until December 31, 2018. Title I of the Security Assistance Appropriations Act, 2017 (Division B of Public Law 114-254), appropriates $289.5 million for ITEF and these funds are available for obligation until September 30, 2018. ITEF funding should be used to provide sustainment assistance to the Peshmerga, including stipends, food, fuel, ammunition, medical supplies, training, equipment, and other sustainment, as described in the amended FY 2017 ITEF budget justification book. All implemented cases, to include case notes, will also need to be modified prior to case closure to reflect the appropriate public laws. Management and execution of FY 2017 (Z6) programs will comply with guidance provided in the Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM), Chapter 15.
