The Departments of State and Defense administer the Foreign Military Sales program, which sells military equipment and services to foreign partners and allies. In December 2015, the Kenyan government requested to buy 6 or more AT-802L aircraft to support its anti-terrorism efforts. In March 2017, DOD presented an offer for Kenya to purchase up to 12 of these aircraft. Kenyan government officials wanted to wait until after national elections in August to decide, and as of August 30, 2017, Kenya had not agreed to the sale. We found the events related to this transaction to be consistent with the standard Foreign Military Sales process.
