DDTC Publishes FAQs and Guidance on Agreements

The Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) today posted on its website three agreements-related documents.

The first document, Guidance for an Agreement Rebaseline, is provided to assist industry in the preparation and submission of an agreement “rebaseline”. An agreement rebaseline is used as a tool to “clean-up” a currently approved agreement. The rebaseline allows an agreement to be brought into compliance with current guidance and policies, integrates numerous cumbersome amendments and/or consolidates provisos levied during the lifecycle of the agreement. The document notes that an agreements officer may initiate a rebaseline after auditing the DDTC agreement file. The document also states that industry is encouraged to review their currently approved agreements and proactively request an agreement rebaseline. DDTC also posted some Frequently Asked Questions on Rebaselining Agreements. The FAQs relate to the criteria used by DDTC in assessing the need for an agreement rebaseline, whether currently approved DSP licenses remain valid under the new agreement and will the agreement rebaseline require staffing.

Finally, DDTC also posted some FAQs on issues associated with Updated Licenses "in Furtherance of" Agreements, which covers document requirements, letters of explanation and other pertinent issues associated with applying for licenses "in furtherance of" agreements.
