MATERIAL TURNED IN
TO STORES ASHORE
Supply support in a changing environment
creates the need of a process by which the return
of unneeded material can be screened for further
use. Turn-in of material from consumers to Navy
stock requires that activities turning in the material
be given credit as appropriate.
Navy material returned to stock points has
traditionally been called material turned into store
(MTIS) since stock points carry material in stores
accounts. MTIS primarily exists to take ready-for-
issue (RFI) turn-ins from customer activities and
return them to stock to meet other Navy require-
ments. It may also be used to return erroneous
issues by stock points or to obtain needed
repackaging/represervation with prior arrange-
ments with the stock point (normally with
customer service). Each transfer must be approved
by the supply officer and entered in the ex-
penditure record log.
MTIS transactions do not include transfer of
material to disposal or depot level repairable
Turn-in of RFI material is accomplished by
using a DD Form 1348-1 prepared by typewriter
or ball-point pen (fig. 3-12). Refer to NAVSUP
P-485, chapter 5, for instructions on how to
prepare the turn-in document.

mander (TYCOM) allotment indicated by the
