    Can the USG conduct a contract in coordination with allied countries such as Britain, Canada, or New Zealand without the administrative headache of FMS-related processing? Essentially, can the USG create a "GWAC" type contract with our foreign allied forces without going through FMS mediums.


    You should consider potential use of Acquisition and Cross Servicing Agreements (ACSAs). You might have circumstances where ACSA use may solve your problems. ACSA use has specific rules and this alternative to a contract is not necessarily a short-cut.

    As with any acquisition method, ACSAs involve specific administrative processes and the added dimension of bilateral agreements (sometimes more complicated than an FMS Case), so you will need to carefully weigh the risk and circumstances before selecting either a US awarded contract or careful use of an ACSA.
