The Building Capacity of Foreign Security Forces is a new program created under the provisions of the FY 2017 NDAA that sought to expand the Global Train and Equip (Section 1206 Train and Equip Authority) scope for the purpose of building the capacity of foreign national security forces to conduct one or more of the following: Counterterrorism operations; Counter-weapons of mass destruction operations; Counter-illicit drug trafficking operations; Counter-transnational organized crime operations; Maritime and border security operations; Military intelligence operations; Operations or activities that contribute to an international coalition operation. 

The program seeks to provide flexibility to meet evolving security challenges. The integrated approach to planning mandated by the authority hopes to strengthen partner nations’ capacity to absorb, apply, and sustain capabilities. Programs developed under this authority are co-formulated, reviewed, and vetted by the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of State,  in an attempt to facilitate stronger unity of effort across the U.S. government’s security sector assistance activities.
