Disclaimer: I am not an FD-member, nor even a DD.  But I am currently in
NM (waiting for an AM).

I assume FD is a pre-screen, so that they can send back applications
that fail on some more obvious criteria.  DAM may need to do more
thorough checks.  FD's checks ensure that applications that reach DAM
are more ready to be processed, reducing DAM's load by decreasing the
number of applications they need to go through.
