It's imperative that you provide these forms because it's the only way your housing referral office (HRO) will know that you elected to store items at government expense. Failure to provide the NTS documents may result in the storage being converted from government expense to your personal expense.
Prior to the end of each fiscal year, your HRO will provide a fund site to the servicing Transportation Office as payment for storage for the next fiscal year. Provided you meet the NTS eligibility requirements, this process continues for the duration of your overseas assignment.
