Assignment of Program Code "H3" for Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 Iraq Security Forces Fund (ISFF), DSCA Policy 11-30, [SAMM E-Change 185]
Program Code "H3" is assigned to track ISFF provided under the Department of Defense and Full Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011 (P.L. 112-10) and used for services and equipment that are authorized for 100% ISFF funding, as provided by the Ike Skelton National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), 2011, (P.L. 111-383). Authorized items include items of significant military equipment (SME) and items on the U.S. Munitions List (USML).
FY11 ISFF (H3) funds will remain available until September 30, 2012. As a matter of policy, all H3 Letters of Offer and Acceptance (LOA) documents should be expended, as well as fully reconciled and closed, on or before July 31, 2017.
Instructions and notes for preparation of FY11 ISFF (H3) LOAs are attached to this memorandum. The following program information for FY11 ISFF is provided for use in preparation of LOAs and other case documentation.
Chapter 4, Table C4.T2. in the automated version of the SAMM found on the DSCA Web Page is updated as follows, as SAMM E-Change 185:
Notwithstanding SME and USML items, P.L. 111-383 stipulates that FY11 ISFF shall generally be used on a cost share basis to fund no more than 80% of services and equipment sold to Iraq.
