SUBJECT :

Designation, Implementation and Execution of FMS Cases Supporting Operation Enduring Freedom (DSCA 01-23)

New FMS cases, and/or amendments or modifications to existing FMS cases in support of Operation Enduring Freedom shall be identified as such by the LOA title (aka "nickname") containing the words OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOM. Doing so will alert MILDEP, DSCA and DFAS personnel as to the special circumstances regarding that FMS case.

Normal procedures will apply for LOA documents implemented on a non-emergency basis. For LOA documents of an emergency nature, the DFAS or Implementing Agency must contact the DSCA Country Finance Director for approval to emergency implement the LOA document. In addition, requests to implement without receipt of the initial deposit must also be transmitted to the DSCA CFD for approval. If approved, applicable LOA documents will be implemented by DFAS and the Implementing Agencies upon receipt of a purchaser-signed copy of the basic LOA or amendment, or a duly executed modification.

Obligation Authority (O/A) for new cases and amendments related to Operation Enduring Freedom will be available immediately for issuance upon receipt of purchaser-signed and implemented documents. For modifications, procurement orders, requisitions, and deliveries may be initiated upon receipt of those documents.

Normal Expenditure Authority (E/A) procedures are applicable for payments that direct cite the FMS Trust Fund. However, if the Terms of Sale are either "Payment on Delivery" or "Dependable Undertaking with Payment After Delivery", DFAS must obtain DSCA CFD approval before processing E/A. In addition, DSCA CFD approval is required before processing a self-reimbursement. Refer to the attached CFD roster for point of contact information.

We appreciate your support of this important endeavor. The DSCA point of contact for this matter is Mr. David Rude, DSCA/COMPT-FM, telephone (703) 604-6569, DSN 664-6569, e-mail: david.rude@osd.pentagon.mil.
