SUBJECT :

Submission of Supply Discrepancy Report (SDR) Packages, DSCA Policy 14-10 [SAMM E-Change 251]

This policy updates Chapter 6 of the Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM) by clarifying that Military Department Headquarters endorsement is required for all Supply Discrepancy Report (SDR) packages prior to DSCA submission. The purpose of this policy is to ensure that all SDR packages which either recommend using more than $50,000 of FMS funds to resolve an SDR, or involves an issue likely to raised to DSCA or higher levels, are properly staffed and endorsed through the Headquarters element of each Implementing Agency.

If you have any questions concerning this guidance, please contact Mr. Kent Bell, DSCA STR/SPI, kent.bell@dsca.mil, (703) 604-6612.

ATTACHMENT - Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM), E-Change 251

Section C6.4.10.7. of the SAMM is revised to read as follows:

C6.4.10.7. DSCA SDR Review. DSCA reviews and approves or disapproves SDRs when the IA determines the USG is liable for correction and recommends use of FMS funds in excess of $50,000; or, the SDR involves an issue likely to be raised to DSCA. When either or both of these criteria are met, the IA must submit a complete SDR package through its Headquarters which meets all documentary and analysis requirements in accordance with Table C6.T3. After Headquarters endorsement of the SDR package, the SDR package will be submitted to DSCA (Business Operations and Strategy Directorates). DSCA will make a final decision on the SDR within 30 days of receipt of the SDR package.
