Military training is provided to foreign governments under two programs, the foreign Military Sales Program and the International Military Education and Training program. Countries purchase training under the Sales program while the training is grant-financed in the latter case. At the request of the Chairman, House Committee on Foreign Affairs, GAO reviewed the effect of past changes in the pricing of training and evaluated an administration proposal for further pricing changes. Revisions to the Arms Export Control Act, which authorizes Foreign Military Sales training, have decreased the amounts paid by foreign countries by an estimated 30 million annually. Furthermore, the administrations proposal to amend the Arms Export Control Act would reduce current training revenues by an additional 40 million annually and increase the costs funded by defense appropriations.
