SUBJECT :

Assign Program Code "E8" to Track Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 Coalition Readiness Support Program (CRSP) Funds, DSCA Policy 12-11, [E-Change 198]

Effective immediately, CRSP funds authorized under the FY2012 National Defense Authorization Act, P.L. 112-81, and appropriated under the FY2012 Department of Defense National Appropriations Act, P.L. 112-74, will be tracked with Code "E8."

CRSP is a DoD designated program name, and a subset of the Coalition Support Funds (CSF) program. It is not specifically named in the authorization or appropriations act, but its authority is based on specially designated DoD-wide Operations and Maintenance (O&M) funds. P.L. 112-81 provides that funds may be used for the purpose of providing specialized training and procuring supplies and specialized equipment and providing such supplies and loaning such equipment on a non-reimbursable basis to coalition forces supporting United States military operations in Afghanistan; and various congressional notifications apply. CRSP funds are available until September 30, 2013, and will cancel on September 30, 2018. This restricted availability is a change from previous years.
