WTSP 14-TS-2202 Conduct Financial Management Support Detachment (FMSD) Operations

Conduct Financial Management Support Detachment (FMSD) Operations



The Financial Management Support Unit (FMSU) and Financial Management Support Center (FMSC) are deployed in support of units engaged in Unified Land Operations. The FMSU has stationed its subordinate Financial Management Support Detachments (FMSDs) throughout the unit’s area of responsibility. FMSDs provide support on an area basis to all U.S. units and allied and coalition forces, with funding agreements, operating in or passing through their support area, as appropriate. Allocation of funds has been coordinated with the theater Financial Management Support Center. Soldiers and commercial vendors require cash and check payments to complete mission requirements. Direct, indirect and day-rate foreign national personnel have been hired and must be paid. Coalition elements operating in the area may also have requirements for funding support for the procurement of supplies and services. All deployed automated systems are operational and loaded with current software. 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. Requests for support of essential commercial transactions are being received from theater elements. Supported units have appointed Paying Agents in accordance with theater policies for individual and procurement support. Paying Agents are required to provide payments to Soldiers and vendors in accordance with (IAW) DODFMR 7000.14-R and FM 1-06. All tactical standing operating procedures and necessary support agreements with coalition forces are available. The Financial Management Tactical Platform (FMTP), Deployable Disbursing System (DDS), the Computerized Accounts Payable System (CAPS), and other automated systems and software, as applicable, will be employed in support of operations. 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.

Disbursing operations, commercial vendor transactions, commercial account transactions are performed and public funds accounted for in accordance with DODFMR 7000.14-R, FM 1-06, DFAS-IN 37-1 and theater financial policies. Paying agents are briefed on duty requirements and acknowledge their responsibilities before receiving public funds. All accounts are properly cleared and closed out. All data, cash, negotiable instruments, paid vouchers, and disbursing records are secured and maintained with 100 percent accountability.
