PREPARATION OF A MILSTRIP REQUISITION
MILSTRIP relies upon coded data for processing requisitions by means of automatic data processing equipment. Whether a DD Form 1348, DD Form 1348m, or NAVSUP Form 1250-1 is the prescribed requisitioning document, take extreme care in selecting and entering the coded data elements. These codes apply to all levels of supply and are too extensive for all to be included in this chapter. The codes are published in the appendices of NAVSUP P-485. The following general rules apply when you are preparing a DD Form 1348 or NAVSUP Form 1250-1:
Specific details for completing DD Form 1348 and NAVSUP Form 1250-1 can be found in NAVSUP P-485.
MATERIAL RECEIPT, CUSTODY, AND STOWAGE For every procurement action taken, there is a following receipt action. When a requisition is prepared, only the first of several steps has been taken. The supplies must be received, identified, checked, and distributed to the appropriate storeroom or department.
As in every operation, responsibility for actions to be taken must be assigned to key personnel. In the receipt of Government-owned materials, responsibility for receipts takes on an added importance because of the many types of material receipts and the required accountability.
There are several types of receipt papers, depending upon the manner the material was requested, the issuing activity, and the modes of transportation used in delivery. The most commonly encountered is DOD Single Line Item
