SOURCES OF SUPPLY
The materiel required to support your ship is
normally procured through the supply systems of
the Navy or DOD. However, in emergencies,
procurement may be by transfer from another
ship or by purchase on the open market.
Operation orders and instructions issued by fleet
commands, type commands, and service force
commands specify the sources of supply for
WITHIN THE UNITED STATES
When your ship is within the United States,
submit supply requisitions directly to the nearest
supply support activity or NSC.
They either furnish the materiel or pass the
requisition to the appropriate activity for action.
The supply department of a naval shipyard or
other ashore activity may issue maintenance items
to ships while at that activity. However, submit
requisitions for major stock replenishment to the
established supply support activity.
SERVMARTS are convenient sources of
materiel that permit the use of a single money
value only (MVO) requisition to procure several
stock items. SERVMARTS are located at most
major naval bases and are designed like modern
When obtaining materiel from a SERV-
MART, prepare a DD 1348 as an MVO
requisition based on DTO requests or storeroom
stock deficiencies. Each of the following
categories of materiel is listed on a separate
DD 1348 when SERVMART shopping lists (SSLs)
l Consumable items ordered for DTO
. Consumable items ordered for stock
. Repair parts ordered for DTO
l Repair parts ordered for stock
. Medical/dental materiel
If yellow copies of NAVSUP 1250 or 1250-1
are used, only one DD 1348 is required for stock
and DTO consumables and for stock and DTO
repair parts. To aid you in preparing requisitions,
each SERVMART prepares shopping guides that
list items stocked and distributes these guides to
ships and activities in the area.
Upon receipt of internal requests, prepare a
DD 1348 to cover the money value, and give the
original to the person authorized on the form to
pick up the materiel. An example of an MVO
requisition using DD 1348 is shown in figure
Ships in overseas waters receive supply
support through submission of requisitions to
MLSF units or overseas bases as specified in
operation orders and instructions issued by fleet
commands. Supply support from these ships is
normally received by underway replenishment.
Procedures for obtaining support from fleet issue
ships are set forth in CINCLANTFLT, CINC-
PACFLT, and COMSIXTHFLT Requisitioning
Guides. Local commands and operating condi-
tions determine whether the underway replenish-
ment (UNREP) is to be by ship alongside, vertical
replenishment (VERTREP) helicopter, or both at
the same time.
When normal supply sources are not available
and general stores stock is exhausted, transfer
items from the ships store or subsistence stock
for the ships use. For example, transfer corn-
starch from the subsistence stock to use in
cleaning the boilers or flashlights from the ships
store for general use.
Such transfers are made on DD 1149 and are
charged to the ships OPTAR. Show the complete
