force/activity designator (F/AD) and the selected
urgency of need designator (UND). F/AD assignment
and the UND criteria are defined in OPNAVINST
4614.1 (series) and NAVSUP P-485. The UNDs
applicable to the priority requirements are listed in
delivery date (RDD) is a mandatory entry. Enter the
specific three-digit Julian date that the material is
required by the requisitioner.
CARD COLUMNS 65 AND 66 (ADVICE). An
Advice code is an optional code. It provides the supply
source with special instructions applicable to the
requisitioned item. When these card columns are not
used, they should be left blank. The optional Advice
codes are listed in table 17-6.
DATA BLOCKS L THROUGH V (REMARKS).
Normally, requisitions should not contain remarks.
Enter remarks only when absolutely necessary to
identify acceptable substitutes, clarify delivery, or to
indicate the planned firing month of training missiles.
Avoid including superfluous data that can be coded
within the MILSTRIP format. For example, by placing
the UIC of the activity where the material is to be
delivered in the supplementary address, by using Signal
code J, and by providing an RDD, the requisitioner can
encode where and when delivery should be made and
eliminate any remarks. If remarks are used, you should
ensure that a document identifier of AOE or AO5 is
Message Requisitioning by DAAS
Ammunition MILSTRIP requisitions are prepared
by fleet units in a specially coded standard format and
transmitted by message directly to DAAS, Dayton,
Ohio. DAAS redirects each requisition on the message
to the activity indicated by the routing identifier. DAAS
redirects the message by way of the automatic digital
network (AUTODIN) system. The activity receiving
the message takes the necessary action to fill or refer
retransmittals are done by AUTODIN. The AUTODIN
system provides the addresses with a punched card for
each document in the originator's message. This
process alleviates the need for message handling or
keypunching by the addressee.
remarks are the only ammunition requisitions that
qualify for DAAS transmission. As mentioned earlier,
remarks can normally be avoided by careful coding of
the requisition. When necessary, remarks can be
transmitted in a separate (non-DAAS) message. The
following types of requisitions are NOT submitted by
