Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Cases for Iraq that Include Charges for In-Country Security Assistance Teams (SATs), DSCA Policy 12-13
- National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 1012, P.L. 112-81, Section 1215(e)
This memorandum provides guidance on recovering costs of operations and activities of SATs funded on FMS cases to Iraq (FMS Customer Code IQ). The NDAA for Fiscal Year 2012, P.L. 112-81, Section 1215(e) requires that all Letters of Offer and Acceptance (LOAs) offered to Iraq must include charges sufficient to recover the costs of operations and activities of SATs. Operations and activities as defined in the Act may include life support, transportation and personnel security, and construction and renovation of facilities.
To comply with this requirement, the following Materiel Article Services Listing (MASL) and accompanying note have been established and are required to be included on all new LOAs for Iraq cases with FMS Customer Code IQ that include SATs, and on existing cases when they are required to be Amended if the note on the current implemented version of the case varies from this text. There is no need to Amend the LOA document only to add this MASL or the associated note.
Generic Code: R9Z
The following is to be used as the line description note associated with the above MASL. It is the responsibility of the Implementing Agency to develop the required information and apply the note to the case.
"This line provides for the SAT personnel life support costs incurred by the United States Government's Office of Security Cooperation - Iraq (OSC-I ). The line value is based on a total case estimation of [insert estimated number of days] SAT personnel/days in country. Only actual costs incurred will be billed to this line.
It is anticipated that the below described SATs will be incorporated into existing U.S. facilities for life support and security as required.
Any unanticipated changes associated with the SATs described here will be addressed through an Amendment to this case if necessary.
These are estimated numbers and the actual size, composition, and duration of the workforce will be determined by the contractor after contract award.
Security Assistance Teams (SATs) are expected to be required in overall support of this case from [Insert Date] to [Insert Date].
