Foreign Military Sales Secondary Item Requirements

DoD policy prohibits the enlargement of DoD spare parts inventories in anticipation of foreign military sales FMS unless the foreign government has agreed to and has funded a Cooperative Logistic Supply Support Arrangement CLSSA. CLSSA requirements are included in U.S. supply system stock level computations. CLSSA requisitions are iflled with the same priority given U.S. forces requisitions. Non-CLSSA requirements are not included in stock-level computations requisitions are filled only if ample stocks are on-hand. The purpose of this report is to describe the rationale for current policy and its implications and reach conclusions as to whether and, if appropriate, how policy should be changed to permit all FMS requirements to be used in setting stockage levels. We are recommending that the ASDMRAL revised DoD Directive 2000.8 to allow inclusion of all FMS requirements in stock-level computations, as is done for U.S. customer requirements. This will result in higher stock levels for those items normally provided via non-CLSSA FMS. We are recommending also that the funds to increase the stock levels be obtained by increasing the surcharge now applied to non-CLSSA spare parts prices.
