To keep units informed of action taken on their
requisitions, MILSTRIP processing activities provide
status follow-ups according to the Media and Status
code selected in the requisition. Normally, status is
provided to requisitioners by messages or punched and
printed cards in MILSTRIP format.
MILSTRIP status documents contain a document
identifier and a routing identifier. These identifiers
denote the type of document and the sender of the status
data. Supply status documents contain a Status code in
card columns 65 and 66. For a current and complete
description of MILSTRIP Status codes, refer to
NAVSUP Publication 485.
Shipment status documents contain information
regarding shipment. This includes date of shipment,
mode of shipment, transportation control number, date
available for shipment, and port of embarkation.
rejection/cancellation of a requisition as the final word.
In some cases, requisitions are rejected/canceled
because the RDD cannot be met. When a later RDD can
be provided, the requisitioning unit should submit a

requisitioned is questioned by the processing activity.
This may happen when the quantity requisitioned
exceeds the allowance or is not on allowance.

the requisition is justified, say so and why.
Normally, ammunition requisitions are processed
for delivery to the requisitioning activity by the
However, requisitions do become lost or delayed. To
minimize this situation, there are several methods that
can be used to review and expedite requisitions. These
methods include follow-up, priority increase, and
Aggressive submission of a MILSTRIP follow-up
on an outstanding requisition is the first and best
method of ensuring the requisition is not lost. All
requisitions have some type of status requirement.
Stock points and inventory managers are responsible
for providing this status, and requisitioners should
MILSTRIP follow-ups should be submitted to the
last known Navy holder after 14 days have elapsed
since submission of the requisition or the last
follow-up. You should continue to do this until a status
is received. A follow-up should also be submitted
whenever notification of backorder status (Status codes
BB, BC, BD, or BP) has been received and there is an
indication that delivery will not meet the RDD.
Follow-up every 14 days until more positive status or
confirmation of the delay is received.
There are three types of follow-up; a specific
document identifier distinguishes each one. When only
the current status of a requisition is needed, you should
use Document Identifier code AF1. A follow-up using a
three-position document identifier in the code AT
(series) is submitted when you are requesting the
current status of a requisition. This follow-up serves as
a replacement requisition when the supply source has
no record of the previously submitted requisition.
Activities located in CONUS should use Document
Identifier code ATD and activities outside CONUS
should use AT4. The AT (series) Document Identifier
codes are used only when the requisitioner has not
received status. An AFC Document Identifier code is
used to improve the estimated shipping date (ESD)
when an unsatisfactory ESD has been received from the
A second follow-up method is to personally contact
the holder of the requisition. This method should be
reserved for more serious problems. It should NOT be
used in a routine manner because it usually involves an
extraordinary amount of time and effort for all
A third method of expediting requisitions is to raise
the priority of the requisition. This can be done only
when the F/AD is upgraded or when the urgency of the
requirement increases (UND designator is raised).
