one. The relevant staff must review international agreements. The Office of General Counsel of the Ministry of Defence and the Office of the Ministry of Defence (Comptroller) must review all agreements. As noted above, the ODTUSD (P) PS must verify all agreements containing classified information or having security effects. Security, foreign commission and technology transfer staff should carefully review the following articles (sections) of all international agreements: a. The success of an international program depends heavily on the effective flow of information between participants. Therefore, representatives of participating countries on security and technology transfer should meet as soon as possible to establish information transfer channels and other security procedures. These procedures may be included in the agreement, in an appendix, or the program office may be responsible for the development of a separate security training program (PSI). See also Chapter 9, Multinational Working Group Documents for Industrial Security (MISWG). c.
The choice of a project implementation vehicle must also be considered. In most cases, the Department of Defence has no preference as to whether production is carried out under a government or commercial program.

For an in-depth understanding of international agreements on cooperative research and development programs, see DoD 5530.3 and the DoD International Agreement Generator computer software program, which is maintained by the Navy International Programs Office.

The OSD has set up an automated International Agreements Generator (IAG). This generator stores, updates and assembles standard rules for certain agreements. These provisions form the basis for the development of international agreements by type and country. The generator contains the policy and justification for choosing one provision over another in a particular agreement. The Navy International Programs Office (703) 604-0152) is the executive agent of the database.
a. DoD Components should seriously consider assigning the program team a security and disclosure expert for international programs and projects involving the transfer of classified and other critical technologies. If these employees cannot be attached to the team, they must nevertheless participate in the development of the program. This objective should be achieved at an early stage to help develop negotiation and advertising guidelines, participate in negotiations and develop security measures for the program (see Section C.8).
