POLICY JUSTIFICATION

Egypt—Personnel Support Services

The Government of Egypt requests a possible sale of personnel support services to support 140 U.S Government and contractor representatives at nine locations. Services will include lodging, transportation, security, medical, and other related elements of program support. The estimated cost is $69 million.

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a friendly country that has been and continues to be an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East.

Egypt has several Foreign Military Sales (FMS) cases that require in-country support from U.S. contractor, military and civilian personnel. Egypt has requested that the U.S. Air Force consolidate the relevant personnel support cases to maximize cost savings. This notification reports the cost for the past three years of this program and the proposed one-year extension.

The proposed sale of these services will not alter the basic military balance in the region.

This principal contractor will be DynCorps in McLean, Virginia. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this proposed sale.

Implementation of this proposed sale will not require the assignment of additional U.S. government or contractor representatives to manage this program.

There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.
