inventory control procedures and (2) to report
consumption under the maintenance data system
(MDS). Prepare NAVSUP Form 1250-1 according to
the following general instructions:
1. Use a ballpoint pen or typewriter.
2. Annotate each entry in the proper data block.
3. To avoid confusion between the numeric 0 and
the alphabetic O, use the communication Ø for
For non-NSN requirements, the Non-NSN
Requisition form (NAVSUP Form 1250-2)
consolidates the information previously submitted on
two forms (NAVSUP Form 1250-1 and DD Form
1348-6). Distribution and preparation procedures for
this seven-part form (fig. 7-10) are identical to those
for NAVSUP Form 1250-1. Additional information on
this form can be found in NAVSUP P-485.
The Single Line Item Requisition System
Document (Manual), DD Form 1348 (fig. 7-11), is
used to requisition material from naval supply
activities. The form also is used to follow up, modify,
cancel, or trace previously submitted requisitions. The
form is available as two-part, four-part, or six-part
carbon interleaved forms for manual use or as a
single-card form for mechanized use. All copies of the
manual forms are identical except for data blocks T and
U. These blocks are blank on the original, but the
copies have a place printed on them to show the unit
and total price. The mechanized form is basically the
same as the manual form, except that data blocks A and
B are omitted.
Codes are used extensively in MILSTRIP
requisitioning because only 80 alphanumeric
characters can be placed on the card. (This does not
include the activity names shown in data blocks A and
B.) Selecting the correct code to convey the proper
information to the supplier is essential. The correct
codes are just as important on a requisition as the
correct NSN. A ready reference code list that applies
to your ship is a time-saver when selecting and
interpreting such MILSTRIP codes as routing
identifiers, project codes, advice codes, status codes,
and fund codes. MILSTRIP/MILSTRAP Desk Guide,
NAVSUP P-409, lists all of the supply system codes
and is available through the supply system. Use the
NAVSUP P-409 to find codes that apply to your
situation when making your ready reference code
Use a typewriter or ballpoint pen to prepare the
DD Form 1348. Do not use a pencil. Pencil marks can
cause errors when the requisition is processed
through mark-sensing equipment at shore activities.
You do not have to space the entries within the tick
marks printed on the form, but you must make the
entries within the proper data blocks. Remember to use
the communication Ø on MILSTRIP requisitions
when zeroes must be used.
