SUBJECT :

Correction to the New Transportation Surcharge Account for Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Programs Funded with Time Limited Appropriations, DSCA Policy 17-53

REFERENCE :

  1. Transportation Surcharge Accounts for Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Programs Funded with Time Limited Appropriations (DSCA Policy 12-10)
  2. New Transportation Surcharge Account for Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Programs Funded with Time Limited Appropriations (DSCA Policy 15-53)
  3. New Transportation Surcharge Account for Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Programs Funded with Time Limited Appropriations (DSCA Policy 17-51)

The referenced memorandums established five additional transportation accounts and provided the line of accounting associated with each account. This memorandum adds a new transportation surcharge account, L609, and identifies the line of accounting that should be used when loading information into shipping and billing systems for the new Building Partnership Capacity (BPC) programs established by the FY17 National Defense Authorizations Act (NDAA).

DSCA Policy 17-51 is rescinded as it identified erroneous program codes unrelated to the L609 account. This new account is only for the primary BPC program established under the FY17 NDAA. The new account is necessary to ensure accurate information is used when processing transportation charges associated with the PBC programs.

The line of accounting for the new accounts is below:
