US approves sale to Ukraine of Blanket Order Sustainment of US Army Supplied Systems worth 100 Mn

The United States (US) State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Ukraine of Blanket Order Sustainment of US Army Supplied Systems and related equipment for an estimated cost of $100 million.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress.

The Government of Ukraine has requested to buy equipment and services for sustainment support of U.S. Army supplied vehicles and weapon systems, utilizing Blanket Orders, Cooperative Logistics Supply Support Arrangement (CLSSA), and/or Simplified Non-Standard Acquisition Program (SNAP), as well as other related elements of logistics and program support. The estimated total cost is $100 million.

This proposed sale will support the foreign policy goals and national security objectives of the United States by improving the security of a partner country that is a force for political stability and economic progress in Europe.

Ukraine has an urgent need to strengthen local sustainment capabilities to maintain high operational rates for U.S.-provided vehicles and weapon systems.

This sustainment support will directly contribute to Ukraine’s battlefield effectiveness through improved logistics and will contribute to more resilient and rapid repair cycle times.

The principal contractor(s) will be determined from approved vendors.

There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.

Implementation of this proposed sale will not require the assignment of any additional U.S. Government or contractor representatives to Ukraine.
