Organizational Clothing and Individual Equipment (OCIE) Checklists


The preferred source of supply for all OCIE is the Standard DOD Supply System. However, if past performance and availability indicates the standard supply system cannot meet the FMS Customer's requirement, the U.S. Army Security Assistance Command, Services and Products Division (SPD), can procure from commercial sources.

To better serve our International Customers, OCIE checklists have been developed to assist in determining requirements and preparing Letters of Request (LORs). The checklists cover clothing, boots, troop support, body armor and Modular Lightweight Load Carrying Equipment (MOLLE) System. The OCIE checklists include a column that should be used to annotate the quantity of each item required by the FMS customer. The completed checklists should be submitted to USASAC as part of the LOR.

The following applies for items procured through the SPD:

  • NSNs included on the OCIE checklist may be cataloged as obsolete in the DOD supply system however SPD has previously been successful in obtaining the items.
  • Inclusion of items on the checklist does not guarantee availability. Some items procured in the past may no longer be produced.
  • Price and availability of items may fluctuate based on market demand.
  • Unit price of purchased items is not available until contract is awarded. Upon request, an estimated unit price may be available from the SPD.
  • Items appearing on the Clothing Checklist may be subject to minimum order quantity due to fabric production restraints or non-NSN item may be supplied.
  • USASAC SPD follows standard procurement practices and therefore OCIE must comply with the Berry Amendment that all cloth items are made in the USA and companies are 50% US owned.
  • Items that are not available through FMS do not appear on this list. Examples include:
    • Advanced Combat Helmets (ACH)
    • Army Combat Uniform (ACU) Digital Camouflage
    • Modular Integrated Communications Helmet (MICH)
    • Enhanced Small Arms Protection Insert (ESAPI)/Improved Outer Tactical Vest (IOTV)
    • Certain Specialized Special Operations Items (case by case basis)
  • SPD has established IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity) contracts for a number of OCIE items. These items are annotated with an "X" in the column entitled "IDIQ". Depending on demand, items under an IDIQ contract should result in a shortened leadtime.
  • Additional OCIE not available through the standard DOD supply system and not reflected on the checklists could still possibly be obtained through the SPD. FMS customer should provide detailed description such as obsolete NSN, part number, last known manufacturer, technical characteristics (salient), color, size/dimensions and internet website, if applicable. The more information provided by the FMS customer, the more success the SPD will have in procuring the required equipment. All criteria outlined in the above bullets will apply to these items.
