PROCEDURES FOR REIMBURSEMENTS FOR EMERGENCY SUPPORT FUNCTION
(ESF)-10; OIL SPILL AND HAZARDOUS MATERIAL RESPONSES
Applicability. These procedures apply to all Stafford Act reimbursements relating to the ESF-
10; Oil Spill and Hazardous Material Response.
Discussion. Once ESF-10 has been activated, a supporting unit should receive a written
Mission Assignment (MA) if tasked directly by FEMA or a Request for Federal Assistance
(RFA) if tasked by the Primary Agency. When a unit receives a verbal request to provide ESF-
10 support in response to a declared disaster, they should ensure that they receive an MA or
RFA. If an MA or RFA is not issued, the unit should contact the National Pollution Funds
Center (NPFC) CERCLA person during working hours and ask their assistance in obtaining
Expenditures Eligible For Cost Reimbursement. Only incremental costs directly related to the
disaster MA or primary agency tasking will be billed and reimbursed. The following types of
expenditures are eligible for cost reimbursement:
Travel and per diem of Coast Guard military personnel assigned solely to perform services
in support of the emergency operations.
Wages/salary (regular time and/or overtime), travel and per diem of temporary Coast
Guard civilian and Reserve military personnel assigned, activated or recalled, as
appropriate, solely to perform services directed and required to provide assistance in
response to emergency operations.
Overtime, travel, and per diem of permanent Coast Guard civilian personnel.
Cost of work, services, and materials procured under contract to support emergency
Costs of materials, equipment, and supplies (including transportation, repair, and
maintenance) from regular Federal stocks used solely to support emergency operations.
This will include costs for repair of any equipment damages sustained through no
negligence in response to the incident. In the case of reimbursements for operating costs
of Coast Guard facilities (i.e. cutters, boats and aircraft), claims shall be limited to the
incremental/variable portion of standard facility costs as outlined in COMDTINST 7310.1
