,Introduction This presentation illustrates the new MASL process.
The Military Articles & Services List (MASL) is a catalog of descriptive codes and text used to identify materiel and services available to be transferred to foreign governments and international organizations.
It is intended here to show how to process MASL lines through DSCA using the new guidelines established in the MASL Handbook 7003.
Throughout this presentation, there will be short reviews/tests. Once you have completed the presentation, you’ll get a certificate.

,IA Procedures Appendix 4 of the SAMM provides guidance for deciding whether a requirement should be placed in the MASL and programmed as a major item or included as a dollar value line, as follows:
An "X" in the column headed "Major Item" indicates that all requirements under that generic code must be included in the MASL and programmed as defined lines.
An "X" in the column headed "Dollar Line" indicates that all applicable requirements must be programmed under the appropriate dollar value lines which have been previously established in the MASL.
An "X" in the column headed "Major Item" and also in the column "Dollar Line" indicates that specific major items must be programmed as major items with secondary items and components programmed as dollar value lines.
,All additions to new items, or changes and deletions to existing lines should be submitted by the appropriate IA having single-service wholesale inventory management responsibility. When a change is being submitted to transfer the wholesale inventory management responsibility to another IA, such changes shall be initiated by the IA acquiring the responsibility and shall be coordinated with the IA relinquishing responsibility prior to submission to DSCA.
All transactions shall be submitted, by the using one of the appropriate transaction formats (see Chapter 3, 1200 System Transaction Formats) to DSCA by e-mail only (MASL@dsca.mil). All MASL input received by the DSCA shall normally be processed along with program data in the next update.
Dollar Line Submissions. All additions of new items, or changes and deletions to existing dollar value lines are initiated by DSCA unless otherwise directed. The IAs when deemed appropriate may make recommendations concerning dollar line additions and changes.
DLA items. Responsibility for submission of MASL data (adds/changes/ deletions) for items supplied by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) belongs to the Department of the Army.  
,The materiel MASL contains two types of lines for use in programming – major items and dollar value lines. Major items are specific individual items identified in the MASL with a unit of issue other than "XX" (dollar lines); e.g., aircraft. Dollar value lines are homogeneous groupings of related items which generally represent a high density of specific individual items or spare parts with relatively low unit prices.
