The Office of Security Assistance (SA) directs over $6 billion annually in U.S. military grant assistance to allies and friends through policy development, budget formulation, and program oversight. The Office of Security Assistance is comprised of the Security Assistance (SA) Team, the Afghanistan-Pakistan Security Assistance (AFPAK) Team, and the Global Security Contingency Fund (GSCF) Team. The Security Assistance Team develops and manages military grant assistance policy and funding through numerous programs, in cooperation with regional bureaus and DoD. The Afghanistan-Pakistan Security Assistance Team similarly develops and manages military grant assistance and related policy issues with those two countries. The Global Security Contingency Fund Team oversees joint State-DoD identification, development, funding, and implementation of assistance to respond to emergent challenges and opportunities across several facets of the security sector.
