AID Form 3-252 is necessary to issue ADS material. It is essential. It is an approval form that captures all relevant information about the new or revised information, such as title, content, ADS clearance information, and all relevant signatures. The first page of this form allows the point of contact or the primary author to indicate what is new or what has changed in their material. The second page indicates to M/MPBP/POL and their ADS Coordinators/Editors what happened during the clearance cycle – which Bureau/Independent Office (B/IO) cleared, which B/IO did not clear, the disposition of substantive comments, etc.
