Our cover feature is a series of articles acquainting us with the Defense Contract Management Agency DCMA. DCMA, as one of seven combat support agencies within the Department of Defense, is fulfilling vital support to U.S. initiatives via its deployed Contingency Contract Administration Services Teams. Moreover, its personnel are also performing key duties in contract support of foreign military sales customer nations. Whether embedding a foreign military sale in a larger contract, or building a support case related to a direct commercial sale, your organization and our allies benefit from DCMAs expertise. As with every Journal edition, we have attempted to capture the most important and timely information possible to pass on to you. The annual spring edition traditionally emphasizes the year security assistance budget, along with accompanying articles surrounding the U.S. foreign policy that shapes it. This year is no different, underscored by the transcript of Secretary Powells testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee regarding the International Affairs Budget for fiscal year 2004. Among other policy-related compositions, Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, James A. Kelly, addresses current newsmakers, China and North Korea. If international military education and training IMET is up your alley, you might be interested in Expanded IMETs E-IMET human rights impact in Latin America El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. The focus is on research derived from secondary sources and student surveys illustrating potential successes of that program. It attempts to measure the performance and quantify the International Military Education and Training Programs sphere of influence.
