SUBJECT :

Update of Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM) Table C4.T2D., Country, International Organization, and Regional Codes and Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Eligibility (Regions), DSCA Policy 18-07 [SAMM E-Change 369]

REFERENCE :

  1. Presidential Determination 18-05, "Eligibility of the Organisation Conjointe de Cooperation en matiere d'Armement to Receive Defense Articles and Defense Services Under the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as Amended, and the Arms Export Control Act, as Amended," April 20, 2018

Per the referenced Presidential Determination on April 20, 2018, the Organisation Conjointe de Cooperation en matiere d'Armement (OCCAR) is eligible to enter into Foreign Military Sales (FMS) of defense articles and services. As a result, SAMM Table C4.T2D., Country, International Organization, and Regional Codes and FMS Eligibility (Regions) is updated to establish "7B" as the Security Cooperation Customer Code (SCCC) for Agent Sales through OCCAR.

Agent Sales are those sales in which an Agent, such as OCCAR, is acting on behalf of one or multiple FMS-eligible countries or international organizations to procure defense articles and services. All Agent actions are legally binding on the Principal(s) for whom the Agent is acting. A single Letter of Offer and Acceptance (LOA) documents an Agent sale of defense articles and services on behalf of multiple Principals, though for accounting purposes, each Principal will be listed separately within the LOA.

In consultation with DSCA (DBO/FPA), SCCC 7B attributes for the LOA will be established based on the most restrictive attribute required for any of the LOA Principals purchasing on the LOA. These attributes address Dependable Undertaking status, Contract Administrative Services (CAS) waivers and Congressional Notifications thresholds and periods.

Accordingly, SAMM Table C4.T2D. is updated as shown below:

Further, the following will be added to the Notes section at the end of Table C4.T2:

Note 8. OCCAR is FMS-eligible only to act as an agent on behalf of one or more FMS-eligible Principal countries. LOA attributes that are normally fixed by country, such as Dependable Undertaking status, Contract Administrative Services (CAS) waivers and Congressional Notifications thresholds and periods, are established by applying the most restrictive attribute required for any of the co-Principals purchasing on the LOA. DSCA (DBO/FPA) determines SCCC 7B attributes for each OCCAR LOA on a case-by-case basis.

This policy is effective immediately. For questions concerning financial attributes to be assigned to cases using this SCCC, please contact Mr. Glenn Anderson, DSCA (DBO/CFM) at 703-697-8863 or e-mail: glenn.e.anderson22.civ@mail.mil. For questions relating to Agent Sales or to the SAMM, please contact Mr. Mike Slack, Strategic Planning and Integration Division, at (703) 697-9058 or e-mail: micheal.d.slack.civ@mail.mil. Implementing Agencies should disseminate this policy to supporting activities.
