Information Collection Requirement; Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Occupational Safety and Drug-Free Work Force Defense Acquisition Regulations System The Government of Mexico has requested a possible sale of 3,335 M1152 High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs), spare and repair parts, support and test equipment, communication equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor engineering, technical and logistics support services, and other related elements of logistical and program support. The estimated cost is $556 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 strategic partner. Mexico has been a strong partner in combating organized crime and drug trafficking organizations. The sale of these HMMWVs to Mexico will significantly increase and strengthen its capability to provide in-country troop mobility to provide security. Mexico intends to use these defense articles and services to modernize its armed forces and expand its existing army architecture to combat drug trafficking organizations. This will contribute to the Mexican military’s goal of updating its capabilities, while further enhancing interoperability between Mexico and the U.S. and among other allies. Mexico will have no difficulty absorbing these vehicles into its armed forces. The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region. The principal contractor will be AM General in South Bend, Indiana. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale. Implementation of this proposed sale will require at least four U.S. Government or contractor representatives to travel to Mexico for a period of three years to provide operational and maintenance training. There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.
