SUBJECT :

Guidance for Excess Defense Article (EDA) Reporting (03-18)

REFERENCE :

 

  1. Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended, Sec. 516(h)

 

Reference (a) establishes legislative requirements for DSCA to report EDA transfers. This information mist be reported annually to Congress in the State Department's Congressional Bidet Justification. To make the reporting process runs smoothly, DSCA obtains this information from the implementing agencies through the EDA worksheet. To facilitate the process, DSCA is revising the EDA worksheet to include more information. The Military Departments must now include in the information provided to DSCA at the end of each fiscal year the National Stock Number (NSN) and the Military and Article Service List (MASL) of each item to assist with the collection of more accurate acceptance and delivery data.

This change is effective immediately and will be include in the new Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM). A sample of the update version of the EDA worksheet, which shows the new requirement for the NSN and MASL, is attached.

Additional information other than that contained in the attachments may be required by DSCA on a case-by-case basis. If you have any questions or need additional information regarding this process, please contact Lisa Moskowitz, DSCA/P3-P2, (703) 601-3862, e-mail elisa.Moskowitz@dsca.mil or Oz Sanborn, DSCA/P3-P2, (703)601-3718, e-mail oz.sanborn@osd.pentagon.mil
