All assigned sections and personnel will deploy. Operations plans (OPLAN), and orders (OPORD) for supported command are received. A tentative deployment window is established. Requests for financial support will be received from U.S. and coalition elements in the area of operations. A disbursing station activity will be established. Initial operating funds will be derived from Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS). Payments for commercial vendors will be required. Soldiers are expected to request partial and advance payments. Financial support for coalition units is to be provided in accordance with support agreements.
