|Publication Date:||16 October 2020|
This regulation prescribes Army policy and responsibilities for the execution and management of acquisition and cross-servicing agreements (ACSA) transactions. This regulation describes the legal authorities contained in Sections 2341 through 2350, Title 10, United States Code (10 USC 2341 through 2350). It provides Army commanders and other personnel with guidance on the use of ACSAs to obtain from or provide to eligible countries or international organizations logistic support, supplies, and services (LSSS). Per Department of Defense Directive (DoDD) 2010.9, ACSA authorities are to be used primarily during combined exercises, training, deployments, operations, or unforeseen circumstances or exigencies, including wartime, contingency operations, humanitarian or foreign disaster relief, and peace operations conducted under Chapter VI or VII of the United Nations Charter, in which one of the parties may need to acquire and/or transfer LSSS. This regulation does not provide substantive legal authority to negotiate or conclude ACSAs.
