Abstract:

This paper tracks the evolution of Foreign Military Sales from the 1930s through the International Security Assistance and Arms Exports Control Act of 1976. The procedures for processing a Foreign Military Sale addressed in this paper are based on the International Security Assistance and Arms Export Control Act of 1976. These procedures include the restraints and prerequisites as dictated by Congress in the legislation, and provide the framework for conducting a government-to-government Foreign Military Sale. The development of the Letter of Offer and Acceptance DD Form 1513 and the importance of specifying the desired terms and conditions of this contractual document are discussed. In addition, the financing available for a government-to-government foreign military sale is discussed.
