(d) In the case of any weapons system for which procurement funds have not been previously requested and for which funds are first requested by the President in any fiscal year after the Budget for such fiscal year has been submitted to the Congress, the same reporting requirements shall be applicable to such system in the same manner and to the same extent as if funds had been requested for such system in such Budget.
ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF DEFENSE.
Washington, D.C., January 3, 1972.
Memorandum for Assistant Secretaries of the Military Departments (FM) Subject: Submission of Congressional data sheets in support of procurement
items in the fiscal year 1973 President's Budget Part III, Section 2, Chapter 324 of the DoD Budget Janual 7110–1-M calls for submission of the Congressional Data Sheets on January 10, 1972. Section 506 of the FY 1972 Authorization Act requires some modification to the existing data sheet format in order to portray five year funding and delivery information.
Representatives from my office have been holding preliminary discussions with the staffs of the Congressional Committees in order to arrive at an acceptable data sheet format. The attached revised missile format is representative of the type of data that will be required in support of the FY 1973 procurement of ships, aircraft missiles and vehicle/weapon programs. No substantial changes to this format are expected from final Congressional discussions. Members of your staffs have been contacted informally concerning these changes in the data sheet format.
In light of these changes, the requirement for five draft copies to the OASD (Comptroller), Procurement Directorate, is extended by eight days to January 18, 1972, with final printing and distribution to Congress planned for on January 24, 1972.
Signed ROBERT S. Moot, Assistant Secretary of Defense.
