Acquisition and Cross-Servicing Agreement Law and Legal Definition

Acquisition and Cross Servicing Agreement (ACSA) refer to agreements negotiated on a bilateral basis with US allies or coalition partners that allow US forces to exchange most common types of support, including food, fuel, transportation, ammunition, and equipment. The Secretary of Defense has the authority to execute these agreements. This power may or may not be delegated. These agreements are used for contingencies, peacekeeping operations, unforeseen emergencies, or exercises to correct logistic deficiencies that cannot be adequately corrected by national means.
