On behalf of the U.S. Government, DoD is contemplating negotiating and concluding a Reciprocal Defense Procurement (RDP) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Ministry of Defense of Latvia.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lt Col Judy Anderson, Senior Analyst, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics (OUSD (AT&L)), Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy, Contract Policy and International Contracting; Room 5E621, 3060 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301–3060; telephone 703–695–7197. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DoD has concluded RDP MOUs with 23 PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21849 qualifying countries, as defined in the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 225.003, at the level of the Secretary of Defense and his counterpart. The purpose of an RDP MOU is to promote rationalization, standardization, and interoperability of conventional defense equipment with allies and other friendly governments. These MOUs provide a framework for ongoing communication regarding market access and procurement matters that enhance effective defense cooperation. RDP MOUs generally include language by which the Parties agree that their defense procurements will be conducted in accordance with certain implementing procedures. These procedures relate to— • Publication of notices of proposed purchases; • The content and availability of solicitations for proposed purchases; • Notification to each unsuccessful offeror; • Feedback, upon request, to unsuccessful offerors concerning the reasons they were not allowed to participate in a procurement or were not awarded a contract; and • Provision for the hearing and review of complaints arising in connection with any phase of the procurement process to ensure that, to the extent possible, complaints are equitably and expeditiously resolved. Based on the MOU, each country affords the other country certain benefits on a reciprocal basis consistent with national laws and regulations. The benefits that the United States accords to the products of qualifying countries include— • Offers of qualifying country end products are evaluated without applying the price differentials otherwise required by the Buy American statute and the Balance of Payments Program; • The chemical warfare protection clothing restrictions in 10 U.S.C. 2533a and the specialty metals restriction in 10 U.S.C. 2533b(a)(1) do not apply to products manufactured in a qualifying country; and • Customs, taxes, and duties are waived for qualifying country end products and components of defense procurements. If DoD (for the U.S. Government) concludes an RDP MOU with the Ministry of Defense of Latvia, then Latvia would be listed as one of the qualifying countries in the definition of qualifying country at DFARS 225.003, and offers of products of Latvia or that contain components from Latvia would be afforded the benefits available to all qualifying countries.
