Table C9.T2. Case-Related Manpower Functions and Funding Source Manpower Matrix

This support may be required either:

  • By the USG based on analysis of the requirements (For example: Some weapon systems may require more extensive management from a USG-perspective if they are complex, being newly introduced to a country's inventory, etc.), this must be captured in the case note.

  • By the purchaser's request for additional support (For example: Some cases may require more extensive management or expedited closure from a purchaser-perspective if they have high visibility within the country or if there are internal country requirements for reporting, tracking, etc. These requests should be part of the LOR or meeting minutes and documented in the case note).

The Non-Standard column describes activities that are case funded due to the item(s) being procured are not currently being procured for the DoD and therefore require case funds for any additional workload associated with these efforts.

All site surveys should be paid by an LOA. If an LOA does not yet exist, the LOA resulting from the site survey must reimburse the FMS admin account.

 

 

5

Participation in FMS meetings that occur during tradeshows.

Discussions at Tradeshows regarding specific LOAs may be funded with FMS Admin. All tradeshow FMS meeting participation funded with FMS admin must be approved by the DSCA Director. Requests should be made during the security assistance program budget review process.

X

 

 

 

9

Transparency efforts like discussing a capability and multiple platforms to meet that capability require an LOA. These include presenting multiple defense articles as COAs to meet a capability need so that the international partner has an option to procure the item that best suits operational, timeline and budget requirements.

X

 

Responses to RFI efforts for items not currently being procured by the US Department of Defense may require additional activities such as: design, engineering, cost estimating, long term logistics support, etc. in order to properly develop and price the LOA. If an LOA results from this effort, a line on the LOA will reimburse admin costs.

Subsequent requests for the same item will require an LOA.

20

LOR defense article/service configuration review process.

X

 

Case Development efforts for items not currently being procured by the US Department of Defense may require additional activities such as: design, engineering, cost estimating, etc. in order to properly develop and price the LOA.

4. Incorporate a new asset (provided by US industry) into a US or foreign platform.
5. Integration of modified US components.
6. Total package approach (logistics, maintenance, training, construction, etc.).
These efforts will be captured on an LOA. If no LOA exists to fund these efforts, FMS administrative surcharge funds may be used. These costs must be captured on the resulting LOA and the line will reimburse the administrative surcharge account.

  • Conduct meetings and/or prepare correspondence as determined by the USG to keep the case on track and keep the purchaser informed regarding cost, schedule, and performance of the individual case.

Most aspects of day-to-day case analysis are automated and do not require face-to-face reviews, particularly when the case’s cost, schedule, and performance are on track. If at any time the customer asks for support that isn’t covered, it needs to be added to the case.
The purchaser should be encouraged to utilize the SCIP for day-to-day information on one or more specific case(s).

X

Frequency should be consistent with the milestone plan established during case development.
These reviews may be required either:

  • By the USG based on analysis of the requirements, or
  • By the purchaser request for specific additional support

If this level review is USG-mandated, the case manager will decide (1) how frequently this review is required, and (2) if the program warrants face-to-face meetings to conduct this review or if other means of communication will suffice. If the program involves multiple cases with different case managers, these decisions will be made jointly by the case managers based on analysis of the requirements.

 

X

 

 

97

Review [IA-Level]
