REQUISITION DOCUMENT PREPARATION
MILSTRIP requisitioning is based upon the use of
the coded, single-line, item document, DD Form 1348.
MILSTRIP relies upon automatic data processing
equipment and coded data for processing requisitions.
Therefore, the requisitioner must take extreme care in
selecting and assigning coded data elements.
MILSTRIP documents consist of requisitions,
follow-ups, and cancellations. There are two different
documents into the ammunition supply system. The
choice and method are determined by the following
Submission by the Defense Automatic Ad-
dressing System (DAAS). Submission of
MILSTRIP documents by the DAAS is the
preferred method for submitting MILSTRIP
Submission by naval message. A naval mes-
sage is used only for those MILSTRIP
documents specifically excluded from sub-
mission by DAAS.
