  • DSCA Policy Memo 21-62, International Military Education and Training (IMET) Offsetting Collections Guidance has been posted.

    This memorandum updates Chapter 10 of the Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM) to add guidance to the Implementing Agencies (IAs) in order to increase accountability of inaccurate IMET Offsetting Collections transactions in its accounting systems. To remediate findings from Period of Performance 1 identified in reference (a) NFR 2019-03, on inaccurate postings explained in reference (b), DSCA developed a monitoring process to review offsetting collections transactions posted by the IAs to the Security Assistance Accounts (SAA) unadjusted trial balance.
