EXBS Balkans Logistics and SME Support
Bureau of International Security-Nonproliferation
The purpose of this award is to provide coordinated logistics services, to include selection of subject matter experts (SMEs), to support EXBS programming in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia, hereafter referred to as the Balkans. The hallmark of EXBS in the Balkans is the affordability of utilizing, in most cases, no-cost regional trainers, coupled with EXBS all-inclusive logistics support, to build and strengthen partner capacity in three key pillars - strategic trade control management, customs enforcement, and border security operations. We implement most programs in the region via this model, which relies on implementer(s) logistics services to organize and execute engagements as delivered by these no-cost instructors or by other SMEs, where required.
