Letter of Offer and Acceptance (LOA) Standardization Guide, Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) Policy 20-01

REFERENCE :

  1. DSCA Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM) 5105.38-M

In an effort to standardize and improve the quality of LOA documents, the Military Departments (MILDEPs) and DSCA developed the attached LOA Standardization Guide to facilitate LOA development across the Security Cooperation Enterprise.

All LOA document developers will follow this guide when developing their LOA documents using the Defense Security Assistance Management System (DSAMS), which will promote consistency and accuracy.

This document is not intended to replace reference (a), or any active DSCA Policy, but rather to standardize and enhance application.

The LOA Standardization Guide can be found on the DSCA Website. For questions regarding this guide, contact Ms. Ellen Jenkins-Moorman, DSCA/DSA/CWD, at (937) 713-3191 or email: ellen.d.jenkins-moonnan.civ@mail.mil.
