DISCS Module 6: End Use Monitoring and Evaluation Lesson 1: Intro to EUM Module Goal In the previous module, we discussed the processes and steps required to transfer materiel and services to a partner nation. After defense articles or services are transferred however, the U.S. still has a responsibility to make sure that they are used properly, and that their use promotes U.S. national security objectives. This responsibility is met with various requirements and evaluations. The first requirement is to monitor the use of the transferred articles or services through what is known as End-Use Monitoring, or EUM. Additionally, the U.S. evaluates the outcomes of the SC program to ensure return on investment is measured against original program goals, and best practices are captured and disseminated, through the Security Cooperation Assessment, Monitoring, and Evaluation, or AM&E framework. In this module, I will introduce you to both of these processes. Lesson 1: Objectives This lesson’s objective is for you to describe the purpose and requirements for End-Use Monitoring, or EUM. By the end of this lesson, you will be able to recognize the requirements for EUM, summarize the objectives of EUM activities, and list the three programs that accomplish EUM. Introduction to EUM At the end of Module 5, we learned about program monitoring as part of the AM&E framework. Throughout this course we have explained how the U.S. is able to sell and transfer equipment to a partner nation. Because much of this equipment is sensitive and can cause harm to others, the U.S. must ensure that the partner nation is sufficiently protecting the equipment and using it for its intended purpose.

The U.S. Government does this through End-Use Monitoring. EUM is conducted through different programs depending on the Department that executes the transfer of defense articles or services. We will discuss this further in this lesson. Let’s revisit our scenario in Bandaria and listen in on a conversation between the SCO Chief and the Bandarian MOD representative regarding the requirements of End-Use Monitoring for the transfer of NVDs and radars from the U.S. to Bandaria, the partner nation. Bandarian Scenario The U.S. has a responsibility to ensure that the equipment we sell and transfer to any country does not fall in the wrong hands and is used for the intended purpose that the sale was made. Part of my job is to obtain assurances from our partners that they are complying with the requirements imposed by the USG regarding the transfer, use, and protection of equipment after Bandaria takes possession. Well, once it is transferred to Bandaria it is our sovereign property and you really don’t have the right to verify how we use our stuff.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
