Applications for Improving Trade Controls through Port Management Practices are invited.
The purpose of this award organized by The Bureau of International Security-Nonproliferation is to address national security deficiencies in partner nations’ export controls, public procurement, financial controls, investment screening, and critical infrastructure protection measures, as well as build institutional capabilities in customs and border enforcement to prevent malign state actors from exploiting those weaknesses for their advantage.
Under this NOFO, ISN/ECC seeks proposals to advance U.S. foreign policy and national security priorities by supporting initiatives that make decision-making structures and processes in fragile, conflict, or crisis-affected contexts more reflective of and responsive to the needs and perspectives of partner states to ensure strategic trade control systems meet international standards and by engaging on bilateral, regional and multilateral levels with foreign governments to aid in the establishment of independent capabilities to regulate transfers of weapons of mass destruction, WMD-related items, conventional arms, and related dual-use items, and to detect, interdict, investigate, and prosecute illicit transfers of such items.
