Use record positions 30-35 for entering the
requisitioner service designator (V or R) and UIC. This
will also certify all requisitions for N service designator
for the same UIC.
Leave record positions 36-80 blank.
Send MOV responses to DAAS by message. The
format of AP series response document is the same as in
regular MILSTRIP format. Refer to Appendix B1 of
NAVSUP P-437 for the format of AP series documents.
This response must have the routing identifier of the
requesting ICP in record positions 4-6. Leave record
positions 71-73 blank to allow for DAAS electrical
transmission. MOV responses are authorized for
transmission during MINIMIZE.
NONRESPONSE TO MOV
When conducting the MOV you must pay attention
to each step and to the deadlines to prevent cancellation
of valid requirements. Ensure that the message response
is released on time to prevent cancellation for
nonresponse. The following paragraphs describe the
reasons for canceling material obligations.
Supply sources will cancel material obligations
when the requisitioner has not acknowledged receipt of
the scheduled validation request document.
Requisitions can also be canceled when no response
card (DI AP) is received by the response due date. When
receipt of validation requests has been acknowledged
but no document AP has been received, the requisitions
will also be canceled by supply sources.
There is no authorized method allowed by
MILSTRIP to reinstate requisitions canceled under
MOV The only method of getting the material is to
resubmit a new requisition.
SPECIAL VALIDATION REQUESTS
Item managers may send special validation
requests. For example, the item manager may need to
validate requirements for high dollar value or critical
items. Item managers determine those essential items
that are scarce or expected to be scarce for an extended
period. These items are called critical items. The method
for transmitting requests and response for special MOV
is by message. The message request will consist of
document number, stock or part number, unfilled
quantity, identification of ship to address, priority, and
reply due date. The reply due date will be 10 days from
the date of the message dispatch. Responses to special
validation requests will be accomplished in the format
shown in paragraph 02142 of NAVSUP P-437
The MOV process is a valuable tool in freeing funds
when items are no longer required. These funds can then
be used for other requirements. The process is also a
valuable tool in developing supply monitoring methods
and skills within an activity.
