​Good morning, all. We are currently starting work under a Project Agreement - the program will involve the sharing of classified data between the two countries, and there is the need to develop both a Project Security Instruction and a Classification Guide.

If anyone has any examples of either of these documents which they could share, that would be greatly appreciated.

DAU's Webinar “Competing to Win - International Acquisition – Ukraine and Beyond will be conducted on Aug 2, 2022 from 12:30 – 2pm (ET).  This Webinar will explore DoD's International Acquisition & Exportability (IA&E) activities that are vital to the achievement of U.S. National Security and Defense strategy objectives. Like past crises, U.S. Government defense material support to Ukraine highlights the importance of DoD acquisition as a key tool of foreign policy. What lessons from our Ukrainian experience should we consider in the broader context of strategic competition with China and other global powers?

We encourage U.S. Government and DoD Acquisition and Security Cooperation workforce members, allied and friendly nation counterparts, and U.S. and foreign industry personnel to “Save the Date” and join us on Aug 2 at 12:30pm ET by registering on the Events” section of the Website.
