State Dept ITAR 126.4 REV -- 4-19-19.pdf
  
State Department ITAR 126.4 Exemption Revision (Apr 19)DoD; Multi Component
The State Department published a long-awaited International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) 126.4 revision in the Federal Register on April 19. 2019.

The previous version ITAR 126.4 was most often used as a DoD International Cooperative Program (ICP) ITAR exemption based on the DoD ITAR Exemption Guidelines issued by the Defense Technology Security Administration (DTSA) in 2004/2007 (Note:  these DTSA ITAR Exemption Guidelines memos are available on this ICOP website.)

In addition to updating and clarifying several areas regarding use of ITAR 126.4 for ICP-related ITAR exemptions, the revised version of ITAR 126.4 also addresses non-FMS Security Cooperation efforts as well as the U.S. Government Customer and Border Protection (CBP) reporting requirements for the use of this exemption.

Consult your DoD Component International Program Organization (IPO) or local Foreign Disclosure Officer (FDO) regarding potential use of the revised ITAR 126.4 provisions in support of your Int'l Acquisition program's implementation.

The JROC Memo encourages DoD Components to begin incorporating these Defense Exportability aspects into current and future JCIDS requirements documents.  The next issuance of the JCIDS Manual will be updated to reflect these changes.

This DPAP Memo authorizes deviations from the Section 830 FMS FFP contracting guidance in two circumstances:

1) The FMS customer nation requests use of a different contract type in writing (which, in normal practice, would most likely be included in the FMS Letter of Request (LOR)).

2) It would be in the best interest of the U.S. and U.S. taxpayers as determined by the "Chief of the Contracting Office" based this DPAP Memo and DFARS PGI 216.403-l(l)(ii)(B) (e.g.., in situations where U.S. and FMS contracting requirements are being combined in a U.S. contracting action using contract type other than FFP to achieve optimal performance, cost, or schedule outcomes for the U.S.)  OSD/A&S/DPAP staff has confirmed that the "Chiefs" of local commands' Contracting Offices within the DoD Components (e.g., the various Army, Navy, and AF acquisition commands that routinely award US and FMS contracts) are authorized to make such determinations.

For further information regarding implementation of this guidance, consult the OSD/A&S/DPAP website, your DoD Component Contract Policy organization, and/or your DoD International Program Organization (IPO) .

The Senate passed its version of the Fiscal Year 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in mid-June.  The International Acquisition and Exportability (IA&E) impact areas include:

Section 1639:  Mitigation of Risks from Foreign Information Technology Providers (Int'l Contracting)

Section 1654:  Israeli Iron Dome, David's Sling, and Arrow 3 Title 10 guidance and funding authorizations (Missile Defense Agency)

Title XVII, Sections 1701 - 1733:  Comprehensive modifications to the USG Committee on Foreign Investment in the US (CFIUS) and Defense Production Act modifications (Tech Security & Foreign Disclosure and Int'l Contracting)

Many observers are also surprised that the Senate failed to act on Administration proposals to change prior year NDAA provisions in the Security Cooperation acquisition and contracting areas that are problematic from a DoD acquisition workforce implementation perspective.

The DoD Security Cooperation community and U.S. industry are awaiting passage of the House Version FY 2019 NDAA to see if their change proposals in this area will be addressed.
