- Lead-Nation Procurement Letters of Offer and Acceptance (LOA), DSCA Policy 14-24, January 30, 2015
- Extension of the Lead-Nation Procurement Initiative Test Period, DSCA Policy 17-11, March 22, 2017
- Agent Sales - New Multinational Foreign Military Sales Initiative, DSCA Policy 18-08, July 6, 2018
References a) and b) established trial periods and initial guidance for implementation of the Lead Nation Procurement Initiative. Reference c) established Agent Sales as an FMS model, again, with initial guidance to be updated later. This policy memorandum supersedes all three referenced memoranda, and introduces formal guidance to the SAMM as Chapter 5, Section C5.6. Multinational Foreign Military Sales.
Noteworthy additions to the previously issued policies include extension of the Lead Nation model to permit, and to provide guidance on, sales of defense articles requiring Enhanced End-Use Monitoring (EEUM), and the addition of Figures providing language for required supporting documents.
This change will take effect immediately. The SAMM will be updated as reflected in the attachment, and this change will be included in the online version of the SAMM found on the DSCA Web Page, www.samm.dsca.mil, as SAMM E-Change 488. If you have questions regarding this policy please contact Ms. Melissa Dockstader, DSCA/SPP/SPI, at (703) 692-6657 or e-mail: email@example.com. Implementing Agencies should disseminate this policy to supporting activities.

C5.6 Multinational FMS
Appendix 6 - FMS Agent Sale Note
SAMM E-Change 488 - C5.6 Multinational FMS
Multinational FMS cases are designed to assist multilateral procurement and support efforts in Europe. Multinational sales models result in ultimate delivery to participating countries for national use. The guidance in this section therefore does not apply to sales to North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) agencies for use by NATO. It is specific to two types of FMS sales models that involve ultimate delivery of defense articles or services to more than one FMS eligible country or International Organization (IO) (for ease of reference, “Lead Nation” which should be understood to include instances in which the lead is either a country or an IO). Lead Nation FMS cases involve a sale, principally of defense articles rather than services, to a single FMS-eligible Lead Nation or IO with the intent that the Lead Nation will transfer some or all of the defense articles on the case to a defined group of FMS-eligible recipient countries. Agent Sales involve sales directly to one or more FMS-eligible countries through a single case managed by one of two IOs authorized to act as an Agent. DSCA Country Program Directors (CPDs) and Implementing Agencies (IAs) should consult with DSCA (Strategy, Plans, and Policy Directorate (SPP) Strategic Planning and Integration Division (SPI)) upon receipt of an LOR for either Lead Nation Procurement or an Agent Sale.

Congressional Notification Criteria/Content/Classification
Permits DoD to participate in and support NATO Support or Procurement Partnership Agreements provided that all conditions of the Arms Export Control Act are met.
C5.6.1. Lead Nation Sales
C18.104.22.168. NATO Support or Procurement Partnerships (SP). 10 U.S.C. §2350(d) permits DoD to participate in and support NATO SPs provided that all conditions of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) are met. Under NATO SPs, sales are made to the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) for retransfer to members of the partnership. NATO SP Agreements may contain terms consistent with those of the AECA that permit retransfer of defense articles purchased through such arrangements among members of the partnership but that require separate retransfer authorizations for transfers outside the partnership. Prior to 2015, in order to comply with AECA Section 3, FMS sales to NATO SPs were generally limited to non-Significant Military Equipment (SME) spare and repair parts so that subsequent retransfers remained below AECA dollar thresholds otherwise requiring prior notification to Congress. In 2015 NSPA expanded its charter to include procurement and lifecycle support of major end items, necessitating development of new FMS sales models.
C22.214.171.124. Lead Nation Procurement. Lead Nation Procurements are sales to a NATO organization or to a Lead Nation with the intent that the defense articles sold will subsequently be retransferred to an identified group of Participating Nations, limited to European nations. Lead Nation Procurements require articles and services to be delivered directly to the Lead Nation identified in the LOA, and therefore would not be a useful sale type for services requiring delivery directly to the Participating Nations. The sale will be supported by a blanket retransfer arrangement, contingent upon receipt of end use, retransfer assurances submitted to the third party transfer team at State Department PM/RSAT (PM_RSAT-TPT@state.gov), designed to permit flexible sharing among the identified group of Participating Nations with terms that maintain accountability and adherence to statutory reporting requirements. Although a separate supporting Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) among the Participating Nation governs their interactions with one another and the Lead Nation, only the LOA and retransfer terms and conditions govern the relationship between the United States and the Lead Nation and Participating Nations.
C126.96.36.199. Letters of Request (LOR)
C188.8.131.52.1. NATO Support Partnerships. NSPA purchases for NATO SPs using Security Cooperation Customer Code (SCCC) N4. For sales that involve spare and repair parts, no special notes or formatting is required. Such sales will normally not require a Country Team Assessment or Combatant Command endorsement unless requested by DSCA per SAMM Section C5.1.4. Case development will occur as a sale to a NATO agency without reference to the Participating Nations, subsequent retransfers will take place pursuant to the terms of the SP charter agreement. More complex sales in support of NATO SPs will generally take place through Lead Nation Procurement or Agent Sales.
C184.108.40.206.2. Participating Nations and Source of Funds. In addition to the normal requirements for LORs in SAMM Section C5.1., the LOR submitted by the Lead Nation must identify all Participating Nations that are potential transferees. National funds are required unless an exception is approved. Any request for an exception should be provided to DSCA (for coordination with Directorate for Security Assistance (DSA), Strategy, Plans, and Policy Directorate (SPP), Financial Policy and Analysis (FPA), and General Counsel (GC)), and DoS, as appropriate, prior to submission of the LOR to both DSCA and the Implementing Agency.
C220.127.116.11. Country Team Assessment (CTA) and Combatant Command (CCMD) Endorsement. If the Lead Nation is NSPA, ODC Brussels, acting on behalf of USNATO, will draft the initial CTA, when required and in accordance with SAMM Section C5.1.4., and coordinate it with the SCOs of the Participating Nations. If an individual country is the Lead Nation, the SCO of the Lead Nation will draft the CTA, when required and in accordance with SAMM Section C5.1.4., and coordinate it with the SCOs of the other Participating Nations. The same offices will work with EUCOM to develop any necessary CCMD Endorsement required in the respective situations described.
C18.104.22.168. Congressional Notification (CN)
C22.214.171.124.1. CN thresholds and notification periods for sales to NATO+5 members apply if the Lead Nation and all Participating Nations are eligible for them. If NSPA or a non-NATO Participating Nation is included, NSPA and/or non-NATO thresholds and notification periods apply as indicated in Table C5.T17.
|Lead Nation and Participants||CN Threshold||Notification period|
NSPA with all NATO Participating Nations
$14M SME or $50M Total Case Value
NATO member with all NATO Participating Nations
$25M SME or $100M Total Case Value
Any Lead Nation with one or more non-NATO Participating Nations
$14M SME or $50M Total Case Value
C126.96.36.199.2. The AECA Section 36(b)(1) transmittal to Congress must identify the Lead Nation as the purchaser and list all approved Participating Nations. This is required to exempt the first retransfer from the Lead Nation to Participating NATO Nations from the potential requirement of a further CN, as permitted by AECA Section 3(d)(4)(C)(ii). Non-NATO Participating Nations do not qualify for the exemption, and the Department of State may be required to submit a separate CN pursuant to the requirements of AECA Section 3(d)(1) prior to the first retransfer from the Lead Nation to any non-NATO Participating Nation.
C188.8.131.52. Case Development
C184.108.40.206.1. LOAs in which NSPA purchases as the Lead Nation use Security Cooperation Customer Code (SCCC) N4. Sales in which a country serves as the Lead Nation are identified as national sales by that nation’s SCCC. Pricing waivers are those available to the Lead Nation, which bears full responsibility for complying with all terms of that sale.
C220.127.116.11.2. Defense articles sold on a Lead Nation case must be releasable and provided in a configuration available to the Lead Nation and all Participating Nations listed on the case. Should there be any differences in requirements or releasability among the Participating Nations, either the level of technology sold on the case should be reduced to the lowest common denominator or separate cases should be developed for countries with like requirements.
C18.104.22.168. Special Notes and Formatting
C22.214.171.124.1. “Lead Nation Procurement” should appear in the nickname field beneath the case identifier. Each case shall include a version of the note in SAMM Figure C5.F15. developed by the Implementing Agency (IA) and cleared separately by the DSCA Country Program Director (CPD) with DSCA Strategy, Plans, and Policy Directorate, Strategic Planning and Integration Division (SPP/SPI) and General Counsel (GC).
C126.96.36.199.2. Figure C5.F15. Figure for Lead Nation Note Standard Terms and Conditions for Transferees, Figures C5.F16. and Figure C5.F17. should be submitted with the case through the Case Tracking System and maintained with case files.
Standard Note in a Lead Nation Case Providing Assurances with Respect to
BLANKET THIRD-PARTY TRANSFER ASSURANCES
The [Lead Nation] has the honor to refer to the provisions of United States law that require [Lead Nation] to provide to the Government of the United States of America (USG) end-use, retransfer and security assurances before the USG may consent to a request to retransfer to it defense articles provided through FMS Case XX-X-XXX by the Governments of [Participating Nations], or other participating countries as may be added in later Amendments to basic case XX-X-XXX.
In accordance with the foregoing, the [Lead Nation] hereby gives its assurances:
Letter of Offer and Acceptance (LOA) Standard Terms and Conditions for
This LOA is implemented under Security Assistance Management Manual Section C5.6., guidance for Lead Nation procurements. Transferees agree to be bound by these Standard Terms and Conditions for Transferees under Lead Nation Procurement for LOA XX-X-XXX. Transferees are defined as a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) organization or nations that are named in this LOA, other than the Lead Nation. The Lead Nation is defined as a NATO organization or nation that is bound by all Standard Terms and Conditions of this LOA, including but not limited to Part 4, and other special notes.
C188.8.131.52. Transportation and Delivery. As the Lead Nation LOA involves sale to a single country or IO, the Lead Nation must export the defense articles and may retransfer them to Participating Nations only once they have left U.S. Customs territory. The Lead Nation should not transfer title to Participating Nations in the United States as they will not have an export authorization with which to clear U.S. Customs.
C184.108.40.206. Retransfer authorization.
C220.127.116.11.1. Initial Retransfer. Although the Department of State approves the first retransfer from the Lead Nation to Participating Nations as part of the FMS sale, the Lead Nation may not retransfer title or possession of the defense articles to a Participating Nation until the Participating Nation has provided the Lead Nation with a signed copy of the required end-use and retransfer assurances, and the lead nation has subsequently forwarded to the third party transfer team at State Department PM/RSAT (PM_RSAT-TPT@state.gov).
C18.104.22.168.2. Subsequent Retransfers. After the Department of State has advised through the Lead Nation that the blanket retransfer authorization has been approved, the Participating Nations may retransfer the defense articles sold on the case to one another in accordance with any special terms of the LOA and of the terms of their end-use assurances. National stocks of defense articles procured separately by the Participating Nations are subject to the individual terms and conditions of the export authorities (i.e. FMS, MOU, EDA, DCS, or other security assistance programs) under which they were sold or transferred, and they may not be commingled with any defense articles acquired through a Lead Nation case including those defense articles in the common configuration for retransfer among the Participating Nations.
C22.214.171.124.2.1. If the Original Acquisition Value (OAV) of the defense articles being retransferred to a particular Participating Nation does not exceed the CN values identified for it in Table C5.T17. and in the end-use assurances, the owning country may retransfer the defense articles and report the details of the retransfer to the Lead Nation for quarterly forwarding to PM/RSAT.
C126.96.36.199.2.2. If the OAV would exceed the NATO threshold for retransfers to NATO member countries, or the non-NATO threshold for retransfer to NSPA or a non-NATO country, the transferring country must seek prior consent from PM/RSAT before making the retransfer. Such retransfer will require CN consistent with the notification periods identified in Table C5.T17.
C188.8.131.52.2.3. Should any Participating Nation wish to change the end use of the defense articles or to permanently or temporarily retransfer any defense articles sold on the case to any entity outside of the identified and approved group of Participating Nations, it must seek prior U.S. Government (USG) consent from the Department of State in accordance with the Transferee Terms and Conditions using the retransfer process described at https://www.state.gov/third-party-transfer-process-and-documentation/
C184.108.40.206. Defense Articles Requiring Enhanced End-Use Monitoring (EEUM). Defense articles requiring EEUM may be purchased on Lead Nation FMS cases. EEUM accountability procedures and responsibilities appear in SAMM Section C8.4. EEUM requirements specific to Lead Nation cases are detailed in this section.
C220.127.116.11.1. Site Surveys/Certification of Storage Facilities. If a Participating Nation does not already have storage facilities previously certified by the USG for storage of the EEUM-designated munitions being purchased, pre-delivery site surveys, as described in SAMM Section C8.4.3., are required to be performed on national cases as they entail services provided directly to the Participating Nations. Neither the Lead Nation nor any Participating Nation will be permitted to retransfer EEUM-designated munitions until the USG has certified the receiving nation’s storage facilities.
C18.104.22.168.2. Reporting in the Security Cooperation Information Portal (SCIP) For Lead Nation sales of defense articles designated EEUM, copies of the Lead Nation’s quarterly reports of transfers by it or other nations identified on the LOA must be provided with serial numbers to firstname.lastname@example.org for input into the SCIP-EUM database at the same time the information is provided to PM_RSAT-TPT@state.gov. DSCA EUM Helpdesk will manually edit the SCIP-EUM database to identify the receiving country when it receives notification from the Lead Nation. DSCA makes an exception to the monthly reporting requirement in SAMM Table C8.T2. for retransfer reporting on Lead Nation cases to align with the Department of State’s quarterly reporting requirements.
C5.6.2. Agent Sales
C22.214.171.124. The Department of State permits NSPA and the Organisation Conjointe de Coopération en matière d'Armement (or Organization for Joint Armament Cooperation, known by its French acronym OCCAR) to act as Agents under section 3(a)(2) of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) [22 U.S.C. 2753(a)(2)], which allows an Agent to purchase defense articles and services through FMS on behalf of FMS-eligible countries (Principals). This means that NSPA or OCCAR may, under certain conditions, purchase “as” the country or countries (Principals) for which they act as an Agent. The Agent Sale is designed to facilitate multinational procurement and lifecycle support of services and high value defense articles to a greater degree than is possible through Lead Nation Procurement. Defense articles or services provided through such an FMS LOA identifying the Principal may be provided directly to that Principal. If they are provided indirectly through the Agent, no retransfer takes place as the Agent is legally and effectively acting as the Principal. It is possible in this arrangement for an Agent to act on behalf of multiple co-Principals, making individual national sales through a single LOA. This type of sale does not provide for subsequent blanket retransfers among the participants as is possible through Lead Nation.
C126.96.36.199. C188.8.131.52. Letters of Request (LOR). In addition to the normal process for LOR acceptance, an LOR supplied by the Agent must be accompanied by a letter from the Principal(s), FMS-eligible NATO or European country(ies), signed at a level with authority to sign an LOA, indicating that NSPA or OCCAR will act on the behalf of the country(ies) as its/their agent. The letter from the Principal(s) (See SAMM Figure C5.F18.) will describe and confirm the specific purchase the Agent is being empowered to make, and will recognize the commitment of the Principal(s) to abide by any terms and conditions of any LOA entered into by the Agent on its/their behalf, including full financial responsibility.
DEFENSE SECURITY COOPERATION AGENCY (DSCA)
[COUNTRY MINISTRY OF DEFENCE]
Notification of Agency – [NATO Support and Procurement Agency or Organisation Conjointe de Coopération en matière d'Armement (OCCAR)]
C184.108.40.206. Country Team Assessment (CTA). DSCA County Program Directors will provide the Agent’s LORs to the Principals’ SCOs. SCOs will provide a CTA and Combatant Command endorsement as required in accordance with SAMM Section C5.1.4. or in support of technology release requirements.
C220.127.116.11. Congressional Notification (CN)
C18.104.22.168.1. As the Agent is not the actual purchaser, notification thresholds and periods are those that apply to the Principal(s). Thresholds and notification periods for NATO+5 members apply if all Principals are eligible for them. If non-NATO Principals are included, non-NATO thresholds and notification periods apply to the CN.
C22.214.171.124.2. The notification to Congress will identify the Agent and list the Principal(s) as the purchaser(s). If there are multiple co-Principals, separate sections of the transmittal will list the defense articles and services intended for each Principal and their values. Separate policy justifications will also be provided relevant to each Principal.
C126.96.36.199.3. Defense articles listed in the Sensitivity of Technology section should be listed by item and need not be broken out by country.
C188.8.131.52. Case Development
C184.108.40.206.1. Security Cooperation Customer Code (SCCC). NSPA purchases as an Agent using Security Cooperation Customer Code (SCCC) W7 exclusively for such sales. No special notes or formatting is required. OCCAR, which may purchase on behalf of other countries only as an Agent, uses Security Cooperation Customer Code (SCCC) 7B.
Pursuant to the Arms Export Control Act, the Government of the United States (USG) offers to sell to the Government(s) of [country name(s)] through [Agent’s name and address], acting as its Agent, the defense articles or defense services (which may include defense design and construction services) collectively referred to as "items," set forth herein, subject to the provisions, terms, and conditions in this LOA.
C220.127.116.11.2.1. A note will be included in the case (See Figure C5.F20) to outline terms and conditions relating to the Agent.
C18.104.22.168.2.2. Case lines will be organized in groups, first of defense articles, then defense services, and finally training. In each group, lines should be further grouped by Principal and the Principal identified for each line.
C22.214.171.124.2.3. The Implementing Agency will include a note in the case, Appendix 6 - FMS Agent Sale, to outline terms and conditions relating to the Agent. It need not be restated on Modifications or Amendments if the current implemented case has the latest version.
C126.96.36.199.3. Transportation and Delivery. Separate transportation plans and delivery instructions are required as necessary. Delivery Term Codes (DTCs) should be the same as in a single Purchaser, non-Agent Sales or Lead Nation Foreign Military Sales (FMS) case, and the case costs for transportation will apply below-the-line. Depending on the specific circumstances, DTC 4 or 5 should be used for freight forwarder moves, DTC 7 or 9 for movement by the Defense Transportation System, or DTC 8 for a “pilot pick-up” from a DoD-controlled facility. Further general guidance is in SAMM Section C5.6.15.
C188.8.131.52. Financial Terms And Conditions
C184.108.40.206.1. Source of Funds. Only national funds may be used on Agent Sales. Neither Foreign Military Financing nor any other U.S. grant or appropriated funds may be used for Agent cases.
C220.127.116.11.2. Single Principal. Financial terms in cases involving a single Principal are the terms available to the Principal.
C18.104.22.168.3. Multiple co-Principals.
C22.214.171.124.3.1. Contract Administrative Services (CAS). CAS is an above the line cost but is applied at the case level by DSAMS. CAS waivers will apply only if all Principals are eligible for the same level of waiver. If there are differences, the lowest common denominator applicable to the Principals will be applied to the case. An Individual Pricing Component (IPC) remark must be included in DSAMS that notes the common portions that can be waived.
C126.96.36.199.3.2. Financial Responsibility. Each Principal bears full financial responsibility for defense articles and services it purchases. Each line will be for a single Principal. Each Principal will be responsible for all accessorial charges for its defense articles and services.
C188.8.131.52.3.3. Terms of Sale. Dependable Undertaking (DU) status can be provided only if all Principals included in the LOA are eligible for DU; otherwise, the term of sale will be cash with acceptance.
C184.108.40.206.3.4. Termination Liability (TL) charges for sales from procurement. TL will be included in the payment schedule for Agent sales with a DU term of sale. TL Reserve will be collected via cash and funds will be set aside in the NSPA W7 or OCCAR 7B TL reserve account.
C220.127.116.11.3.5. Termination. Each Principal pays its own termination liability costs. Should one or more Principals decide to terminate a line, an amendment or modification will be made to adjust the lines on the case and the change reported to the Agent. If there are corresponding price increases to the other countries, they are billed to each Principal in lines identified for them on the case just as a price increase would be billed on a standard country case. Any compensation of the other Principals by the withdrawing Principal arising as a result of its decision to withdraw would be addressed by agreement among the co-Principals and not through the LOA.
C18.104.22.168.3.6. Non-Recurring Cost (NRC Waivers). NRC Waivers must be requested in the LOR and are applicable at the line level.
C22.214.171.124.3.7. Case-funded Manpower. Case-funded manpower will be specific to each Principal if applicable, but may need to be applied more generally to the effort involved in a case of this type. In the latter case, the Agent will assign the costs among the Principals. For example, a line for a site survey would be for the Principal involved. More general services such as dedicated case management support when requested may be on a single line assigned to the Agent, which will assign these costs among the Principals on the LOA.
C126.96.36.199.3.8. Supply Discrepancy Reports (SDRs). SDRs may be submitted directly by the Principal or indirectly through the Agent (preferably the latter).
C188.8.131.52.3.9. Payments. Payment may be made to the NSPA W7 or OCCAR 7B account by individual Principals or by the Agent on their behalf. The Principal must inform the USG of which method it will use.
C184.108.40.206. Transportation And Delivery
C220.127.116.11.1. Freight Forwarding and Export. Export authorization is to each of the participating Principals with the Agent able to act on behalf of each. Principals may use their own freight forwarders for their individual shipments. A Principal may not export defense articles identified on the case as being sold to another Principal even with the other Principal’s consent. The Agent may use its freight forwarder to receive and export shipments on behalf of any Principal named in the LOA.
C18.104.22.168.2. Transportation Plans. DoD 5220.22-M, the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual, DoD 5100.76-M, Physical Security of Sensitive Conventional Arms, Ammunition, and Explosives (AA&E), and National Security Agency (NSA)/Central Security Service Manual 3-16, Control of Communications Security Material, require the development and maintenance of Transportation Plans for each LOA containing AA&E, classified materiel, and COMSEC. One Transportation Plan for each Principal, when required, will need to be maintained by the Implementing Agency and the Principal, either directly or through the Agent as its authorized representative.
C22.214.171.124. Amendments and Modifications
C126.96.36.199.1. Amendments. In a case with multiple co-Principals, each Principal, working through the Agent, may separately amend the lines relevant to it. The Agent will attempt to consolidate amendments by individual Principals to the extent possible. It will generally not be possible to add co-Principals through an amendment.
C188.8.131.52.2. Modifications. Principals will be informed of modifications through the Agent.
C184.108.40.206. Other Standard Terms And Conditions
C220.127.116.11.1. All other LOA standard terms and conditions continue to apply to the Principal or multiple co-Principals as if each had entered into an LOA directly with the United States without an agent.
