DD Form 2793 Volunteer Agreement for Appropriated Fund Activities & Non Appropriated Fund Instrumentalities
What Is DD Form 2793?
DD Form 2793 is the Volunteer Agreement for Appropriated Fund Activities or Nonappropriated Fund Instrumentalities released by the U.S. Department of Defense in March 2018. This form is obligatory for all volunteers wishing to participate in appropriated or nonappropriated fund activities.
The fact the volunteer services are accepted is acknowledged on the DD 2793 before the individual is allowed to provide any volunteer services for the DoD. A copy of the completed and signed agreement is given to the volunteer prior to them starting their work. A full overview of the form can be found in the DoD-issued Instruction Manual 1100.21.
Each branch of service requires a separate pack of documents, but there are several general forms most volunteers must file when pursuing employment. No volunteer has any right of commencing any work before being officially allowed to do so.
It is obligatory for all applicants to undergo a background check, provide a copy of their DD Form 2793 and - in some cases - complete a DA Form 5018-R, ADAPCP Client's Consent Statement for Release of Treatment Information (LRA). This is a form that collects all information that may reveal if an individual previously struggled with excessive alcohol consumption or drug abuse and undergone rehabilitation for those addictions.
