Effective immediately, Program Code "BS" is assigned to track FY 2020 Afghanistan Security Forces Fund (ASFF) funds that are available to provide assistance to the security forces of Afghanistan. Funds are provided under Division A of the Continuing Appropriations, 2020, and Health Extenders Act of 2019 (P.L. 116-59) and will remain available for obligation until November 21, 2019.

Once the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for FY 2020 and the full-year appropriations bill are issued, the instructions for preparing "BS" cases and Letter of Offer and Acceptance (LOA) notes, and relevant Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM) sections, will be revised to cite the appropriate public laws. All implemented cases should be modified prior to case closure to reflect the FY 2020 NDAA authorization legislation and the full-year appropriations legislation. Management and execution of FY 2020 ASFF "BS" programs will comply with guidance provided in the SAMM, Chapter 15
