Conduct Commercial Vendor Service Section Activities



The Financial Management Support Detachment (FMSD) is deployed within an operational theater in support of forces engaged in Unified Land Operations. The detachment deploys its Financial Management Support Teams (FMST). Supported units require payment of commercial vendors for the purchase of goods and services to sustain combat operations and support missions. The Financial Management Tactical Platform (FMTP) and other automated systems and software will be employed in support of operations, as applicable. Conventional attacks by hostile aircraft and operations by ground elements are possible. Threat capabilities include information gathering, hostile force sympathizers, and terrorist activities in a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and high yield Explosives (CBRNE) environment. Some iterations of this task should be performed in MOPP 4.

Commercial vendor transactions are processed in accordance with (IAW) DODFMR 7000.14R, VOL 10, Chapters 1-22 and Appendix A and B, FM 1-06, DFAS-IN 37-1 and theater financial policies. Amounts specified in the contract/purchase agreement are paid without error.
