WWRS is a tri-service program designed to transfer fully serviceable materiel from one Foreign Military Sales (FMS) country to another. The program also supports the U.S. Air Force, Navy, and Army as well as the Defense Logistics Agency in locating hard to find parts.
Often referred to as the “Ebay of FMS,” WWRS managed by the Air Force Security Assistance and Cooperation (AFSAC) Directorate allows FMS Partner Nations to recoup funds from excess FMS/DCS acquired inventory. If a country has excess supply of serviceable spare parts or equipment for an FMS/DCS acquired weapon system, then they can sell it anonymously to another country or USG organization using the WWRS program.
How WWRS Works:
- Step 1: The selling Partner Nation submits a letter of request to the AFSAC Country Team to sell excess equipment using a Letter of Offer and Acceptance (LOA). The LOA is offered to the Partner Nation for signature.
- Step 2: The WWRS Team lists inventory for sale on its website once the LOA is signed and funded by the Partner Nation
- Step 3: The buying Partner Nation submits an online order for the required materiel using a blanket order spares or equipment LOA. (USG orgs fund order with MIPR).
- Step 4: The selling Partner Nation ships materiel to be inspected for quality assurance and country confidentiality before shipping to buying Partner Nation.
- Step 5: Once shipment to buying Partner Nation occurs, the WWRS Team collects payment from buying Partner Nation on behalf of selling Partner nation using a special billing process with DFAS.
