Update to Interim Clarification on 10 USC § 333, DSCA Policy 19-22
- DSCA Policy Memo 18-38, Interim Clarification on 10 USC § 333, dated September 5, 2018
Effective immediately, this memo updates the referenced DSCA policy regarding the use of funds.
A section 333 proposal may be conditionally approved and congressionally notified no more than one fiscal year in advance of an available appropriation. If the Department of Defense seeks approval and notification of a section 333 proposal in advance of an appropriation, the Action Memo accompanying the approval/notification package must include a statement explicitly conditioning execution of the project on follow-on coordination with the DoD Office of General Counsel, the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller), and with the Department of State in the fiscal year of execution before funds are released for the program. The secondary review of the proposed section 333 program ensures there are no new enactments or changes in policy that affect program execution, and that funds are available for the program. For example, after notification, Congress could enact additional conditions or restrictions that would affect funds availability or eligibility. No program may be initiated without full funding from available appropriations.
If you have any questions concerning this guidance, please contact Ms. Caroline Chin, DSCA-SPP/SPI, firstname.lastname@example.org, (703) 697-9073.
