The Letter of Agreement on countering organized and gang related crime provides the framework for the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs to support the RSS and its Member States on law enforcement professionalization, narcotics interdiction, organized crime investigations, and rule of law programs.

The project provides US$1.65 million in additional funding for the RSS.
