DD645 Working Group Summary Report

By: Ikuo Yoshida – DD645 Working Group Chair and Director of the Japanese Ministry of Defense’s Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Agency (ATLA) FMS Liaison Office

In September 2018, billing and shipping document reconciliation was established as a Foreign Procurement Group (FPG) priority with the mandate to:

“Work with the relevant U.S. agencies to investigate a process to allow the efficient and accurate matching and reconciliation of document numbers on DD645 billing document with requisition numbers on DD1149 shipping document.”

In response, a DD645 working was established in April 2019 and led by Japan. The Working Group is well attended by key FMS partner nations and United States agencies, such as the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) and Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA). The group’s work is highly valued and has established a productive framework for interactive exchanges, networking and up-to-date information sharing with the professional perspectives of both the FMS customer and the United States Security Cooperation enterprise. To highlight this important work a DD645 Summary Report was recently drafted by the Working Group, led by its Chair, Ikuo Yoshida.
