MEMORANDUM FOR :

DEPUTY ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF THE ARMY DEFENSE EXPORTS AND COOPERATION (DASA-DEC)

SUBJECT :

New Transportation Surcharge Account for Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Programs Funded with Time Limited Appropriations, DSCA Policy 18-25

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

The referenced memorandums established six additional transportation accounts and provided the line of accounting associated with each account. This memorandum adds a new transportation surcharge account, L709, and identifies the line of accounting that should be used when loading information into shipping and billing systems for the new Counter-ISIL Equipment Fund (CTEF) programs established by the FY17 National Defense Authorizations Act (NDAA).

This new account is only for CTEF. The new account is necessary to ensure accurate information is used when processing transportation charges associated with this Building Partnership Capacity (BPC) program. DSCA Policy 17-53, reference c, previously stated the CTEF programs would be managed in the L609 account; however, this memo is corrective in that it establishes a separate account for CTEF.

The line of accounting for the new accounts is below:

New Transportation Account Authority Line of Accounting
