The Government of the United States of America and the Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (hereinafter referred to as the Parties):

Desiring to further the cooperation between them within the framework of the Mutual Defense Assistance Agreement of January 27, 1950;

Having due regard for the provision of the Mutual Support Agreement of February 22, 1983 (hereinafter “the Mutual Logistics Support Agreement"), and, in particular, Article V, paragraph 2, thereof;

Have agreed to amend the Mutual Logistic Support Agreement as follows:

Article 1

  • a) article I, definitions, paragraph g, “Europe and Adjacent Waters" is deleted in its entirety.

  • b) article II, applicability, paragraph 1 is deleted, and the following paragraph is inserted:

    “1. This agreement applies to provision of logistic support, supplies, and services to the military forces of one Party by the military forces of the other Party."

  • c) article III, paragraph 3, basic terms and conditions. The first six lines (the chapeau language) is deleted and replaced with the following language:

    “3. For any logistic support, supplies or services, the Parties may negotiate for payment either in cash in the currency specified by the supplying Party (a `reimbursable transaction'); payment-in-kind (an `exchange transaction'); or payment in `equal value' to be defined in monetary terms only. Accordingly, the receiving Party will pay the supplying Party in conformance with 3 a., 3 b., or 3 c. below."

  • d) article III, paragraph 3, basic terms and conditions. The following subparagraph is added:

    “c. Equal Value. The term `equal value' means logistics support, supplies, or services defined in monetary terms using actual or estimated prices in effect at the time a transaction is approved. Both Parties will maintain records of all transactions, and the receiving Party will pay the supplying Party by transferring to the supplying Party logistic support, supplies, or services that are equal in value to the logistic support, supplies, or services delivered or performed by the supplying Party and which are satisfactory to the supplying Party. If the receiving Party does not pay in `equal value' within the terms of an exchange schedule, in effect or agreed to at the time of the original transaction (which may not provide for payment more than twelve months from the date of the original transaction), the transaction shall be deemed a reimbursable transaction and governed by paragraph 3 a. of the Agreement as amended. Any payment resulting from a reimbursable transaction will be made in accordance with the receiving Party's fiscal policies and procedures."

  • e) All other provisions of the Mutual Support Agreement dated 22 February 1983 shall remain unchanged.
