USFK Invited Contractor Program

All U.S. Contractors supporting U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) are required to be SOFA Designated via an Authorized USFK Form 700-19A-R-E in order to legally work in the Republic of Korea (ROK), regardless of they will be working for 20 minutes or 20 years.  The theater business clearance process for U.S. Contractors in Korea is governed by the U.S.-ROK Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) and implemented IAW USFK Regulation 700-19.  It is a two-step process.  The first, of which the Contracting Officer (KO) is responsible, is to obtain SOFA designation for the Contract/Order and Prime/Sub contracting companies.  The second, of which the Korea-based Sponsoring Unit (Requiring Activity) is responsible, is to obtain SOFA designation for each contractor.  Below are links for information and required documentation.
