This regulation does not apply to the following:
a. Defense Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) Information Exchange Program (IEP) annexes covered by DODI 2015.4. Note, however, that an RDT&E IEP agreement under DODI 2015.4 is covered by this regulation.
b. Contracts made under the Federal Acquisition Regulation.
c. Foreign Military Sales Credit Agreements.
d. Foreign Military Sales Letters of Offer and Acceptance and Letters of Intent.

International agreements and other international arrangements negotiated or concluded by Army elements under express authority granted to that Army element by unified commands or subordinate unified commands. In the case of such agreements and arrangements, the procedures set forth in Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) Instruction 2300.01C, "International Agreements," and in the applicable combatant command regulation or instruction apply.
