ACCOUNTING POLICY AND PROCEDURES
|Publication Date:||1 September 2002|
This chapter sets forth overall standards to be followed in accounting for assets. One of the objectives of Department of Defense (DoD) accounting is establishing accounting control over all assets provided to, or acquired by, the DoD. Assets shall be under continuous accounting control from acquisition to disposition. Such control helps ensure proper and authorized use as well as adequate care and preservation, since no asset can be acquired, put into use, transferred, written down, written off, or disposed of, without the proper authorization necessary to document and record the transaction. All tangible assets provided to the DoD shall be accounted for, including assets in transit and assets in the hands of contractors, private parties, and other government agencies.
