DANA-ISH SUBJECT: Human Use Coordination for Project GRILL FLAME (U) f. (C) The Army General Counsel maintained that GRILL FLAME activities involved human use and required Secretariat review and coordination UP Proce- dure 18, DOD Regulation 5240.1-R. The DOD General Counsel initially disagreed. The issue was decided on 17 Nov 81 with the DOD General Counsel accepting the Army position. A detailed review of this "human use" question is at TAB E. g. (S/NOFORN) The future of the Army program has been complicated by the elimination of Army FY 82 GRILL FLAME 0&M funds during the Congressional HA.C - SAC conferees' hearing. However, it appears that the Army request for five permanent GRILL FLAME personnel positions for FY 82 remained in the pro- gY?am. DIA's GRILL FLAME effort for FY 82 was fully funded for $330K. Army GRILL FLAME activities are contained in our FY 83 program submission and this will allow us to fully air the issue with Congress. In the interim, INSCOM plans to keep the effort alive by internal reprogramming until a final decision on future funding can be reached. h. (U) The current Army Secretariat authority to conduct GRILL FLAME activities UP Procedure 18, DOD Regulation 5240.1-R requires renewal in Jan 82. (TAB F_). Army GRILL FLAME activities will be continued subsequent to 14 Jan-82 pending resolution of the above described FY 82 funding issue. The ACSI memo at TAB A seeks this authority from the Secretary of the Army. f ._._._._.. Wq~1C 3..
