is assigned an F/AD of III and your requirement is of a routine nature, assign priority 13.
In addition to providing standardized criteria for assigning priorities, UMMIPS provides acceptable maximum processing times for use by supply activities in furnishing materiel. Processing time standards and additional codes used in MILSTRIP and UMMIPS are included in NAVSUP P-485.
Most of the information shown on DD 1348 is represented by codes. These codes apply to all levels of supply and are too extensive for all to be included in this chapter. However, some of the more common are included in the data block entry descriptions below. The codes are published in the appendixes of NAVSUP P-485.
Prepare DD 1348 by typewriter or ballpoint pen. Do not use pencil, because pencil marks can cause errors when the requisition is processed through mark-sensing equipment at shore activities. In preparing requisitions, do not space the entries within the tic marks printed on the forms, but make sure the entries are made within the proper data blocks. To eliminate any possible confusion between numeric zero and an alphabetic O, use the communication zero on MILSTRIP requisitions when zeros are applicable.
In the descriptions below, show the data block letter or number first, then the field legend, or title, as printed on the form, and finally, a description or explanation of the data shown in that block.
DATA BLOCK A, SEND TOIdentification of the supply source is a mandatory entry. If the requisition will be submitted to a shore activity, enter the service designator code (SDC), unit identification code (UIC), name, and location of the activity to which the requisition will be submitted. See the sample entry in the next illustration. If the requisition will be submitted to another ship, enter the SDC, UIC, name, and hull number of the ship as shown in the next illustration.
DATA BLOCK B, REQUISITION IS FROM Identification of the requisitioner is a mandatory entry. Enter the SDC, UIC. name, and hull number of the requesting ship as shown below.

DATA BLOCKS D, E, and F, EDITING DATA These blocks are left blank.
CARD COLUMNS (CCs) 1-3, DOCUMENT IDENTIFIERThe document identifier identifies the purpose of the document, such as requisition, followup, and cancellation. The appropriate three-position document identifier code is entered as follows:
