For the time after 1996 we use the so called "Greensheets
" (available at the Federal Reserve of Philadelphia's website) containing the Federal Reserve staff's internal forecasts of inflation (the implicit gross domestic product [GDP] deflator/GDP chain waited price index at an annual rate), output growth (percentage change in real GDP at an annual rate), and the unemployment rate.
Besides these duties, the CST creates and promulgates customer advisories; maintains liaisons at two aerial ports of embarkation (APOEs) (Dover Air Force Base, Delaware, and McGuire Air Force Base, New Jersey); clears arms, ammunition, and explosives (AA&E) consignments for entry into ports; handles "greensheet" requests; and provides basic transportation and FACTS system support.
The CST and the PALs also shepherd Army cargo that has been "greensheeted." Greensheeting cargo allows a specifically identified shipment to gain movement precedence over other Army cargo, including cargo with a required delivery date of 999 (highest priority).
