  • DSCA Policy Memo 20-62, Clarification of Zero-Dollar Value Lines on Foreign Military Sales (FMS) and Building Partner Capacity (BPC) Cases has been posted.

    The purpose of this memorandum is to clarify policy on zero-dollar value lines in the Security Assistance Management Manual (SAMM), Chapter 6 (Foreign Military Sales Case Implementation and Execution). The Implementing Agencies (Ias) are not authorized to have case lines with zero-dollar value (or any other non-executable dollar value (i.e., $1, $2 etc.)) for the sole purpose of serving as a placeholder for unidentified requirements.

    This memo revises C6.7.5. Reduction of Value on Unused FMS and BPC Cases and sub-sections.

  • DSCA Policy Memo 20-72, Monthly Oversight and Review of Performance Reporting has been posted.

    The Government Accountability Office (GAO) noted in audit report 20-386 that, although there is a requirement for the Ias to report performance/delivery within a 30-day timeframe to DFAS, the agencies and DSCA lacked a review mechanism to ensure deliveries were reported timely and accurately. Based on the GAO audit and recommendation, DSCA/DBO/FPA is implementing a process to review the DFAS/Security Cooperation Accounting (SCA) monthly report “IA Delivery Report Card” to monitor the accuracy and timely reporting of deliveries.

    This adds C9.13.3. Performance/Delivery Reporting Monthly Review to Chapter 9.
