Omissions or invalid MILSTRIP codes in any of
these fields cause DAAS to reject the document. DAAS
sends a message back to the originator with a statement
outlining the reason for rejection. Rejections are
minimized by careful drafting and proof reading by
personnel at the originating activity.
PROCESSING.Requisitions coded in the above
format and submitted to DAAS are automatically
readdress to the activity in the routing identifier. When
the requisition cannot be filled by that activity, it is
passed to the inventory manager for action to fill it.
Supply status is provided to the requisitioner, the
according to the M&S code used. All status messages
should come directly from the processing activity or
from DAAS. These status messages should contain a
subject line indicating that it concerns ammunition
Exception Requisitioning by Naval Message
Requisitions that are excluded from submission by
DAAS (mentioned earlier) are the only ones that can be
submitted by naval message. The requisition should be
submitted by using the Joint Message form. The
message should be sent for action to the supply source
indicated in the routing identifier of the MILSTRIP.
The message must be sent for information to
CINCLANTFLT and the activity that the material is to
A MILSTRIP requisition sent by naval message is
normally unclassified. Since none of the MILSTRIP
data elements contain classified information, the
classifying of ammunition requisitions is unnecessary.
If classified remarks are necessary, they must be
provided by a separate message.
REQUISITIONING BY FLEET UNITS
The units mission assignment and geographical
followed by fleet units. Fleet units are composed of
cargo ships (AE/AOE/AOJ/AS), mission load ships
(CV/CVN/LPH/AD/AS), and aircraft squadrons. Since
the majority of Aviation Ordnancemen are assigned to
aircraft carriers or aircraft squadrons, the discussion
that follows concerning requisitioning procedures for
fleet units are limited to these two units.
Ships are required to maintain 100 percent of their
shipfill ammunition allowance on board or on order.
One exception is that stock levels can be reduced to 90
percent to permit expenditures for training, or to carry
exercise ammunition. Individual waivers of this
requirement must be requested from the ship's

activities are determined by the locality of the unit.
