FUNDING PROCEDURES FOR REGIONAL DEFENSE COMBATING
TERRORISM FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM COURSES THAT
CROSS FISCAL YEARS
The following procedures apply to foreign student training funded under the Regional Defense Combating Terrorism Fellowship Program pursuant to the authority of 10 U.S.C. § 2249c. Section 1204 of the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act, Fiscal Year 2007 (P.L. 109-364, dated October 17, 2006), amended 10 U.S.C. § 2249c to authorize amounts available for the Regional Defense Combating Terrorism Fellowship Program to pay costs for programs that begin in the current fiscal year but end in the next fiscal year.
Costs that may be paid for eligible foreign students to attend a program or course which crosses a fiscal year may include costs for transportation, travel and subsistence, to include travel and living allowances (TLA) comparable with the amounts and rates for International Military Education and Training (IMET) found in the DoD 5105.38M, Security Assistance Management Manual, C10.6.8 and C10.6.9.
Should the rare situation occur where a program or course begins in one fiscal year and continue through the next (second) fiscal year into a third fiscal year, the original funding can only pay course costs through the end of the second fiscal year. Whether such courses or programs may be approved for funding will have to be examined on a case-by-case basis.
DSCA Policy for fiscal years 2007 continues to be that, travel and living allowances for programs and courses that cross fiscal years will continue to be treated as severable unless an exception to policy is approved. Beginning in fiscal year 2008, all costs, including TLA, will be treated as nonseverable.
