NAVMEDCOM-controlled items are essential to preserve life, are easily pilfered, and have a high acquisition or replacement cost. Requisition standard stocked NAVMEDCOM-controlled items on DD 1348, and forward the requisitions for technical review through the chain of command to the Naval Medical Materiel Support Command (NAVMEDMATSUPPCOM). NAV- MEDMATSUPPCOM also reviews and approves standard nonstocked and nonstandard item requisitions.
The listing of professional books and publica- tions that are required to be maintained at an activity are in BUMEDINST 6820.4L. GSA periodically makes open-end contracts that cover the procurement of books. All books are procured under the provisions of these contracts.
The term small purchase refers to purchases not in excess of ,000. This term includes only the procurement of supplies and services other than personal services that are authorized to be made from commercial suppliers by purchase orders.
UMMIPS is a vital part of the MILSTRIP system. It was established to ensure that materiel issue requests are processed according to the military IMPORTANCE of the requiring activity and the URGENCY of the need.
MILSTRIP provides forms and procedures for requisitioning materiel, and UMMIPS pro- vides the method of assigning priorities for issuing and moving the materiel. In moving and issuing materiel, it is necessary to provide a com- mon basis to identify the relative importance of completing demands for logistics systems resources. These resources include transportation, warehousing, introduction of requisitions for processing, and materiel assets. The means for determining the relative importance and urgency of logistic requirements is provided by UMMIPS through a series of two-digit issue priority designators.
F/AD is a Roman numeral (I-V) that identifies and categorizes a force or activity on the basis of its military importance. The assignment of F/ADs is shown in NAVSUP P-485.
UND is an uppercase letter of the alphabet (A, B, or C) selected to indicate the relative urgency of a force or activitys need for a required item of materiel. Assignment of UNDs is the responsibility of the force or activity requiring the materiel. UNDs and their associated definitions are as follows:
|A||(1)Requirement is immediate.|
(2) Withouth the materiel needed, the activity is unable to perform one or more of its primary missions.
(3) The condition noted in definition (2) has been reported by established, not operationally ready supply/casualty report (NORS/CASRPT) procedures.
|B||(1)Requirement is immediate or it is known that such requirement will occur in the immediate future.|
(2)The activity's ability to perform one or more of its primary missions will be impaired until the materiel is received.
(3) This comprises immediate stock replenishment requirements of customer mission-essential materiel at overseas forward area supply activities, including mobile logistics support force (MLSF) ships. It occurs when the on-hand quantity is below the safety level and is expected to reach a zero balance before receiving the stock due in.
|C||(1) Requirement is routine.|
PD is a two-digit number (01-highest to 15-lowest) determined by using the table of priority designators shown in figure 12-3. The table is easy to use. For example, if your ship
