CALL Handbook 10-39: Unit Commander's Guide to Paying Agents Handbook

Table of Contents


The U.S. Army Financial Management School and the Center for Army Lessons Learned (CALL) have produced an outstanding "how to" guide to assist unit commanders and their paying agents and field ordering officers (FOOs) in meeting their responsibilities in regard to paying for support to accomplish their unit's missions. While this handbook does not take the place of governing regulations or higher headquarters' policies and procedures that apply to paying agents, FOOs, and their commanders, it is a concise reference book that will greatly assist unit leaders in understanding and performing their pay duties.

This handbook is the latest in a series of recent CALL products that address money as a weapons system and the various facets of supporting commander programs to support the indigenous population in the counterinsurgency environment. By enabling commanders to provide emergency relief, stimulate the local economy through purchases of supplies and services, and create jobs-which gives further expansion to the local economies-commanders can gain the trust and confidence of the local population and their civilian and military leaders.

Key areas covered within this handbook are paying agent "do's" and "don'ts," safeguarding government funds, types of funds available, and loss of funds.

Whether you are a training developer, trainer, unit commander, FOO, or paying agent, application of the information contained in this handbook will enhance accomplishment of money as a weapons system payments.
