Coast Guard Executes Multiple Foreign Military Sales Agreements

The U.S. Coast Guard’s Office of International Acquisition recently executed several foreign military sales (FMS) contracts to provide small boats and air assets to U.S. allied and partner nations.  Three FMS projects are funded with Department of Defense (DoD) Operations and Maintenance (O&M) funds under the authority of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2006 (P.L. 109-163), as amended.  The last project is funded with Department of State funds under the authority of the Foreign Assistance Act (FAA) of 1961, as amended.
 
Recent foreign procurements include:

  • A single firm-fixed price task order worth up to $4.8 million for eight 38-ft response boats with trailers, spare parts, and in-country boat familiarization training and travel for the country of Bangladesh.
  • A single firm-fixed price task order worth up to $1.9 million for two 44-ft response boats with trailers, spare parts, and in-country boat familiarization training and travel for the country of Tunisia.
  • A blanket purchase agreement worth up to $6.2 million to acquire up to twenty-two 27-ft response boats, logistics support, and training over three years for transfer through the FMS program. The first two delivery orders under this agreement will provide two boats for the country of Malta and five boats for the country of Tunisia.
  • A single firm-fixed price contract worth up to $2.5 million for the acquisition of one used rotary-wing aircraft suitable for land and sea operations in a maritime environment for the country of Malta.

The U.S. Coast Guard’s Office of International Acquisition manages and executes new-procurement FMS and excess defense article (EDA) transfer projects, delivering assets and services to our allies around the world. Through such transactions, the Coast Guard is strengthening national security in the maritime domain by building capacity for our international partners and developing relationships that enhance our ability to pursue cooperatively shared maritime safety and security goals.

Combined, the USCG FMS/EDA program has delivered 337 assets to 56 nations around the globe. Since 1997, these projects have contributed more than $650 million to the U.S. economy and avoided more than $64 million in disposal costs for the Coast Guard.
