25th Anniversary Version Of FMF Guidelines -- No Celebration For It Companies

September 10, 2009

On August 31, 2009, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency released a revised set of Guidelines for Foreign Military Financing of Direct Commercial Contracts and Contractor's Certification & Agreement with DSCA which are to be implemented no later than October 1, 2009. The principal changes focus on the difficult compliance issue of identifying non-U.S. content in the products and underscore DSCA's increasingly inflexible approach to that issue, including determination whether spares and post-delivery warranty or maintenance effort constitute non-U.S. content ineligible for financing, a problem that has been particularly troubling for companies furnishing information technology products to the Government of Israel under the FMF program.
