DISCS: Intro to Security Cooperation: Module 5 Module 5 lesson 1: Materiels, services, and training transfers INTRODUCTION TO SECURITY COOPERATION | Module 5: Materiel, Services, and Training Transfers Lesson 1: Overview Module Goal This module’s goal is for you to execute your job responsibilities with an awareness of the process to transfer materiel or provide services and training to partners via SC programs. Lesson 1 Objectives During this lesson you will learn to summarize the transfer processes. Specifically, by the end of the lesson you’ll be able to differentiate partner nation- versus USG-initiated transfers , discuss how transfers support SC plans ,and be able to describe the phases of the transfer process. In addition, you’ll be able to identify factors that impact the phases of the transfer process and describe the responsibilities or organizations involved in the transfer process. Partner Nation- vs USG-Initiated Transfers We previously discussed how programs can be SC, SA, or both. For programs dealing with sales and transfers, another means by which to differentiate programs is by identifying who is initiating the formal request. They can be either: A) requested by the foreign partner, or B) requested by a USG requesting authority. The two differences are: who asked for it, and whose money funds it?

Partner Nation- vs USG-Initiated Transfers (cont.) For partner nation-initiated transfers, the partner nation requests the articles, services, and/or training and may or may not use their own funds to finance it. With USG-initiated transfers, an authorized request comes from the U.S. government directly, in support of regional and/or country-specific SC plans, and the program is funded with USG appropriations. In our scenario, Bandaria will be requesting the radar systems from the USG; however, the SCO, via the Combatant Command, will be the requesting authority for the NVD transfer to Bandaria. As we move through this module, we will be discussing the process by which these transfers are made, noting the minor differences between partner nation and USG-initiated transfer requests as we go. Transfers and SC Plans

No matter the program being used, or who initiated the request to transfer articles, services, and/or training, the transfer must support SC plans at the national, regional, or country level. In accordance with the U.S. strategy to capability concept, both partner nation- and USG-initiated transfers need to help achieve the objectives outlined in SC plans. As we discussed in Module 3, it was determined that it’s in the U.S. best interest to help Bandaria solve its piracy issue, thus contributing to U.S. regional objectives to thwart human trafficking and drug smuggling. Accordingly, the U.S. team has developed a plan to help Bandaria improve its capability to detect illegal maritime activity by transferring at least two unique capabilities to them.

    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.
