Quick Reference Tools

You’ve just been tasked with preparing a procurement request, following the policy for the proper financial accounting treatment of military equipment. What do you do?

You read on, because you’ve come to the right place.

Below, you’ll see procedures and links to the quick reference tools for filling out your procurement request. You have the choice of launching the automated version, launching an interactive version of either tool, or downloading the directions and the tools in a PDF format so that you can look up definitions and reference the Federal accounting standard documents as you need them.

If you need assistance at any time, contact the Property and Equipment Policy Office. We look forward to helping you succeed.

The procurement package you received already includes the “program description” document. As you may recall from the Proper Financial Accounting Treatment for Military Equipment online course, the Program Manager is to prepare the program description and attach it to the Acquisition Strategy Report at the Milestone C decision.
