5 Fort Leavenworth’s International Community
“Internationals” on the installation exist in one of three groups: - International Military Students - International Exchange Instructors - International Liaison Officers Organizational responsibility: - IMS (IMSD for all) - International Exchange Instructors (School assigned) - International Liaison Officers (CAC G3) The rules are different for each category!

6 SATP The Security Assistance Training Program is owned by DOS.
- origins in the Truman Doctrine - legal basis is the FAA; AECA; and associated legislation - eligibility is “sanctions” driven…. DoD is the Executive Agent USG does not “give away” training, equipments, or services…

16 Field Studies Program (IMSD Execution)
~ 40 discreet events per CGSS IMS cohort Limited impact on other instruction: *3 multi-day RON events: “Wichita” trip (3 day/2 night) Fort Riley/KSU (2 day/1 night) Gettysburg/DC (9 day/8 night) The majority of our FSP events are held during the Prep Courses, in the evenings, or on weekends…. The luncheons “impact” no more than 1 hour each – and are scheduled around published lunch breaks…. The multi-day events require detailed coordination with governmental agencies and Fortune 500 business leaders. They are sometimes directed (as with DC) and always require contractual commitments many months in advance of execution…. Creating “Aha!” moments….

27 Senior Professional Military Education Selection Process
US Security Cooperation personnel identify country specific requirement(s) Country specific requirements consolidated and rank ordered (annually) by COCOM Staff; forwarded to HQDA ODASA-DEC executes interagency staffing and balances COCOM requests with Army specific Security Cooperation Guidance* USACGSC configures appropriate administrative support, based on cohort demographics; receives IMS and family Army Chief of Staff approves invitation list, authorizes invitation cable* US Security Cooperation personnel (formerly known as Security Assistance personnel) in Joint Staff Officer assignments at US missions abroad are responsible for identifying country specific training and education requirements in support of DOD’s role as executive agent in the Joint Security Cooperation Education and Training Program. Country specific requirements are consolidated and rank ordered at Joint Security Cooperation Training Program Management Reviews (TPMR) conducted annually by the Regional COCOM staff responsible for Security Cooperation (J3 in most COCOMs – but J4 in USEUCOM). Requirements are forwarded to HQDA for staffing (Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Defense Exports and Cooperation (ODASA-DEC) has primary responsibility for both intra and interagency staffing of the consolidated lists. Subsequent to sanction determination, the COCOM lists are balanced against the Army’s Security Cooperation Guidance, and specific country allocations are made (for example, the Army’s top 3 priorities may all be PACOM countries). In the case of the USACGSC this process continues until 66 seats are filled (for June report); and 44 seats are filled (for January report). Invitation list goes to Chief of Staff of the Army for final approval, and once any adjustments are made the CSA authorizes ODASA-DEC to transmit the invitation cable to the COCOMs. Responsible COCOM staff relay invitations to the originating US Security Cooperation personnel - who relay the invitations to the sending country. Sending country nominates a participant, based on the course prerequisites. US Security Cooperation personnel initiate required predeparture vetting, medical screening, and produce the Invitational Travel Order. USACGSC develops administrative support plan and Field Studies Program to meet the requirements of the cohort. US Security Cooperation personnel initiate coordination for funding, security vetting, and production of an Invitational Travel Order ODASA-DEC sends cable to COCOMs, specifying invitees* Sending Country nominates candidate, based on course prerequisites COCOMs pass invitations to selected in country US Security Cooperation personnel
