*Please refer to the project 632(b) MOA to determine whether reprogramming authority has extended the applicable date of funds cancellation.

Chapter 15 of the Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM), DSCA 5105.38-M, requires Implementing Agencies to submit a copy of the 632(b) MOA and any amendments as part of the LOA package to Case Writing Division (CWD). CWD will return a case to the IA if the LOA package does not include the 632(b) MOA. The 632(b) MOA is an essential source document that CWD must have to determine the applicable case closure and fund source and availability notes for the LOA.

For each of the program codes listed above, CWD will create two Case Closure notes and two Fund Source and Availability notes to reflect the five year and nine cancellation date options. Attachment 1 provides sample language for Case Closure and Funds Source and Availability notes for CWD use.

If you have any questions concerning this guidance, please contact Ms. Caroline Chin, DSCA-SPP/SPI, caroline.s.chin.civ@mail.mil, (703) 697-9073.
