Major DSCU Budget Change

Posted on: 8/9/2022

Due to Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness (FIAR) Guidance compliance issues and Personally Identifiable Information (PII) security risks, the DSCU Budget Office is unable to continue administering student travel funds as we have in previous years. Since students of School of Security Cooperation Studies (SSCS) do not belong to DSCU organizationally (i.e. administratively), we are unable to require that students adhere to our policies and compliance procedures. As a result, we have no recourse to collect any missing documentation or recoup overpaid expenses in the event of an error.

NOTE: The Services, COCOMs, and Defense Agencies should begin planning for this change within their budget baselines during the Title 10 Budget Estimate Submission (BES) process and/or the Title 22 Security Assistance Budget Process Review (SAPBR).
