Objectives. Objectives of the SMF Property Accountability Project are: a. Identify equipment, supplies, and services purchased with SMF in support of operational projects designated by the INSCOM AR 15-6 Investigation Team. b. Develop guidelines for use in establishing what materiel and services identified in 2a above must be accounted for and thus require inventory and assumption of accountability or investigation and relief from accountability. c. Physically locate property which meets the established criteria and establish property book accountability, or determine that the property is missing and take appropriate actions to obtain relief via Report of Survey, or other actions in AR 735-11. d. Identify instances of suspected fraud, waste, and abuse and, where appropriate, initiate further investigation through CID. 2. Procedures. Upon receipt of documentation from USAINSCOM, INSCOM units/ activities will take all actions necessary to establish accountability IAW AR 710-2 or AR 381-143 (C). a. Vouchers will be individually reviewed to identify property requiring accountability in accordance with policy in the regulations cited above. Specifically, the following guidance criteria will be utilized to determine which items of property or services will be inventoried and accounted for or verified. (1) Nonexpendable Equipment. This is property not consumed in use with a cost of $50 or greater and retains its original identity during the period of use. Examples are vehicles, weapons, radios, and other end items. These items require formal property book accountability and INSCOM units/ activities will be required to account for all nonexpendables which cost $50 or more. (2) Expendable Equipment. This is property consumed in use, or property that loses its identity in use, and all items not consumed in use with a unit price of less than $50. Examples are office supplies, repair parts, and supplies consumed in maintenance and upkeep such as paint, oil, and cleaning materials. No formal accountability for these items is required at the user level. INSCOM units/activities will not be required to account for expendables.

This is property that is not consume in use costs less than $50, does not require property book accountability, but because of its unique characteristics requires hand receipt control when issued to the user. Hand tools are an example of durable items. INSCOM units/activities will not be required to account for durable items. (4) Commercial Items. By applying the criteria outlined above. INSCOM units/activities will be able to determine if they have to account for commercial items. As an example, a commercial' tape recorder would be classified as nonexpendable and would require accountability actions. The Army Master Data File (AMDF) reveals a similar item, Recorder Reproducer: Sound, which has an Army Recoverability Code (ARC) of nonexpendable. This code would be applied against the commercial item. If a similar items was not located in the AMDF, the criteria of not consumed in use, retains its original identity during the period of use, and unit cost exceeds $50, all would apply. The commercial tape recorder would therefore, be classified as nonexepndable and the INSCOM units/activities would have to account for it. b. Once property which must be accounted for has been identified, a review of accountable records will be conducted to ensure property has been entered on the records and accountability established. A physical inventory must be conducted. When property cannot be located an investigation will be conducted under the provisions of AR 15-6 or AR 735-11. Pecuniary liability will be assessed, as necessary. c. Services will be addressed separately. Examples. of services are commercial vehicle repairs, site retails, air charters, etc. Generally, services will be treated as mission essential for valid operational requirements. INSCOM units/activities are not required to verify services unless the expenditure appears to be fradulent, irregular, or violates what would appear to be reasonable to the average person. If an INSCOM unit/activity pursues a service, a validation is required to show that the service has been received, was mission essential, and satisfied a valid operational requirement. If it appears that a claimant received payment for a service which. was not approved, the INSCOM unit/activity should refer the action to CID as a potential fraud caseo d. Suspected fraud, theft, or abuse will be referred to CID for further investigations and criminal prosecution if warranted. ,MA 0788R001500110041-0 Approved For Release 2001/ (; r-T- Approved For Release 2 W4: IA-RDP96-00788ROO1500110041-0 GOODS & SERVICES LISTING PROJECT: CENTER LANE DATE OTHER PURCHASES 1-S-I 10 Jan 84 $8,000.00 Approved For Release W Up,4/A : IA-RDP96-00788ROO150011 OO41-0 proved For Release 2Q ~4m - k_-_[ fit,00788R001500110041-0 US ARMY ELECTRONICS RESFrARCH A14O DEVELOPMENT COMMAND US ARMY ELECTRONIC WARFARE LABORATORY INTELLIGENCE MATERIEL DEVELOPMENT AND SUPPORT OFFICE FORT GEORGE G.
