SUBJECT: INL Managua Vehicle Report

REF: State 56704

1. Embassy Managua provides the following information regarding the
currentQatus of INL funded program vehicles in Nicaragua:

Vehicle Inventory Requirement

Toyota Yaris 4


Toyota Tercel 4
Toyota Hilux 17 3
Toyota Four Runner 1
Toyota Land Cruiser 1
Hyundai Excell 2
Ford VAN 3
GMC VAN 1
GMC Truck 1

Motorcycles Inventory Requirement

Suzuki 5
Honda 20 20
Honda ATV 1
Yamaha 51

2. INL Managua has requested approval for the purchase of 20
motorcycles and 3 Toyota Hi-Lux trucks for the Nicaraguan National
Police's (NNP) Anti-Narcotics, Anti-Organized Crime, and Juvenile
Affairs Units. The purchases will total approximately $120,000;
$60,000 for the 20 motorcycles and $60,000 for the 3 trucks. These
purchases are crQl to maintain the operational effectiveness of
the NNP Units the USG works with in both direct narcotics
interdiction efforts as well as in demand reduction activities.

3. Our end-use monitoring shows that the NNP has maintained
previously donated vehicles in good condition and that they have
supplied sufficient fuel for their vehicle fleet. For this
purchase, we are requesting Toyota trucks for the operational safety
of the NNP officials who will use the vehicles. U.S. trucks are
rare in Nicaragua and would stand out in counter-narcotics
operations.
