Security Cooperation

The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy oversees the Department’s security cooperation enterprise, aligning security cooperation programs, activities, and resources with defense strategy and priorities.  The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2017 set forth significant reforms including the consolidation of authorities under Title 10 U.S. Code, Chapter 16, and the requirement for the Department to maintain a program of assessment, monitoring, and evaluation (AM&E) in support of security cooperation programs and activities.

This site serves as a source for policy and reports implementing the Department’s security cooperation strategy and FY17 NDAA reforms.  Additionally, summaries of completed independent strategic evaluations will be published to this site as part of the AM&E program pursuant to Title 10, U.S. Code, Section 383.  Sponsored by the Department, these independent strategic evaluations produce findings, conclusions, and recommendations by measuring the efficiency and effectiveness of security cooperation programs and activities in achieving desired outcomes.
