  • DSCA Policy Memo 12-38 Compressed, Rapid Acquisition, Fielding and Training (CRAFT) has been posted.

    Approved by the Secretary of Defense on 25 July 2011 as a Security Cooperation Reform Task Force (SCRTF) initiative in the Phase I Report, CRAFT is intended to be a formal process for handling urgent partner nation capability requirements that cannot be addressed fast enough through existing FMS procedures.

    CRAFT is not meant to be a universal remedy for capability delivery and would only be used when the Secretaries of Defense and State agree that extraordinary means are necessary and justified to fulfill urgent partner nation requirements.

    Together with the Special Defense Acquisition Fund (SDAF) and an improved Foreign Military Sales (FMS) process that is more anticipatory of partner nation capability requirements, CRAFT could help build partner nation capabilities through the accelerated delivery of urgently needed defense articles and services.

  • An administrative update was made to C5.4.11. Quality Control of LOA Documents. to correct the table link.

  • DSCA Policy Memo 12-42 Revised Notes for Communications Security (COMSEC) Enhanced End-Use Monitoring (EEUM) has been posted.

    This change to the SAMM deletes the EEUM note for Controlled Cryptographic Items (CCI) and revises existing COMSEC EEUM notes to distinguish separate requirements for NATO Members, Australia, and New Zealand from those for other countries and international organizations for both normal FMS LOAs and Building Partner Capacity Program (BPC) pseudo-LOAs.

    From this memo Table C5.T2. and Appendix 6 have been updated.

  • DSCA Policy Memo 12-36 Guidance Concerning Closure of Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Cases with Open Contracts has been posted.

    In Nov 2011, policy was approved to allow the closure of Building Partnership Capacity (BPC) cases with underlying open contracts that have no unliquidated obligations (ULOs) associated with the case because of the cancelling funds nature of these cases. This memorandum expands that policy to include FMS cases that are closed using the non-accelerated case closure procedures. FMS cases that are closed using accelerated case closure procedures can already be closed with open contracts with or without ULOs.

  • DSCA Policy Memo 12-34 Establish Nonrecurring Cost (NC) Charge - BLU-113 A/B Bomb has been posted.

  • DSCA Policy Memo 12-35 NATO Agencies Reform has been posted.

    Effective July 1, 2012, the NATO Maintenance and Supply Organization (NAMSO), the Central European Pipeline Management Organization (CEPMO), and NATO Airlift Management Organization (NAMO) and their respective executive agencies, including the NATO Maintenance and Supply Agency (NAMSA), will be subsumed into the NATO Supply Organization (NSPO) and a new executive agency, the NATO Supply Agency (NSPA). Portions of the former charters will be retained to allow continuation of legislatively defined cost waivers as the applicable U.S. law currently identifies NAMSO and NAMSA by name.

    Implementing Agencies should be aware of the change to NSPA but should respond to Letters of Request from NSPA using the Security Cooperation Customer Codes (SCC Codes) and names currently assigned to NAMSA programs in Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM) Table C4.T2C. DSCA will issue a policy memo to revise and reassign SCC Codes to reflect the new organization when the necessary legislative and regulatory changes have been made.

    There are no SAMM changes as a result of this memo.
