Needs and Uses: Section 22 of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2762) requires the U.S. Government to use foreign funds, rather than U.S. appropriated funds, to purchase military equipment for foreign governments.

The Government uses this information to determine how much of each country’s funds to disburse to the contractor. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit and not-for-profit institutions.
