Purpose. The instruction provides policy on negotiating and concluding international military telecommunications agreements and arrangements to sell or exchange telecommunications support or services to allow the transfer of data and voice traffic between the United States and regional defense organizations or friendly foreign nations. It also provides for delegation of authority for certain kinds of telecommunications agreements.
Applicability. This instruction applies to the formation of certain international military telecommunications agreements and arrangements to be concluded under the authority of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under DoD authority. Some military telecommunications arrangements are not considered international agreements; e.g., foreign military sales (FMS) credit agreements, FMS letters of offer and acceptance (LOAs), or NATO standardization agreements (STANAGs) that only establish implementing procedures.
