Department of Defense (DoD) - Guidebook for Miscellaneous Payments

This guide is to assist Department of Defense (DoD) officials in identifying mandatory requirements prescribed for DoD miscellaneous payments.  It provides a high-level overview of policies and processes, with a goal of consolidating and streamlining miscellaneous payment procedures across the Components.

An authorized miscellaneous payment is not initiated by a contract and is generally a one-time occurrence for which the government receives benefit.  This guide prescribes policy for certain miscellaneous payments for Federal and Non-Federal entities.  Entities are reimbursed if the underlying expense was authorized and if the claim is legally payable.
