SUBJECT :

Congressional Reporting Requirement to Forecast Excess Defense Articles (EDA) (DSCA 02-38

REFERENCE :

 

  1. Foreign Relations Authorization Act, FY 2003 (PL 107-228), Sec. 1232
  2. DSCA Memorandum dated 14 March 2001; Subj. Excess Defense Articles (EDA) and the Establishment of a National Security Assistance Strategy

 

Reference (a), enacted on 30 September 2002, amends section 25 of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) to require that the annual "Javits report" of possible arms transfers for the coming year include a list and amount of significant military equipment that the Military Departments (MILDEPs) believe are likely to become available for transfer as EDA during the next 12 months. To comply with this legislation, the Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM) paragraphs 80303A and 80303B are deleted in their entirety and replaced as follows:

  1. General. In order for the EDA process to function effectively, MILDEPs must project assets that will become available and customers must provide requirements for EDA (item description, NSN/Part Number, and quantity).

  2. Identification. Ideally, MILDEP identification of ED A will include end items and individual support items to build equipment packages that are as complete as possible.

    1. This is often not practical and EDA planning must proceed at the significant item level. During the fourth quarter of each calendar year, MILDEPs should provide information above for items that are significant military equipment that are projected to become excess during the upcoming calendar year.

    2. MILDEPs should provide a suggested list of recipients to receive articles. This will normally be based on EDA surveys as discussed in C. below.

    3. Major changes to these forecasts should be furnished as they occur for items projected to become excess."

To meet the legislative requirement of reference (a), DSCA requests that each MILDEP forward a list of EDA, which is significant military equipment (type and quantity) presently available or forecasted to become available during calendar year 2003. Request that the MILDEPs provide a suggested list of recipients to receive articles. This list can be based on EOA surveys. A sample format for submission of this data, along with examples, has been attached to this memorandum-and is available electronically if requested. The MILDEPs' responses to reference (b), which also required the forecasting of ED A items, may serve as a reference.

Your assistance with this request is appreciated. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please feel free to contact Ms. Dawn Burke at (703) 601-3864. Please reply by 9 December 2002.
