Instructions for Preparing Pseudo Letters of Offer and Acceptance (LOAs)
If using other than full and open competition, since these Pseudo LOA documents are not signed by the FMS purchaser and do not involve an agreement with the foreign government, the authority of title 10 United States Code (U.S.C.) section 2304 (c) (4), implemented by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 6.302-4, International Agreement (directed source), cannot be used to justify sole source requirements. Any sole source purchases must be justified and approved in accordance with other statutory authority found in title 10 U.S.C. using procedures applicable to United States Government appropriated-funded purchases.
