The primary purpose of DA Form 3318 in the
manual system is to allow units to adjust their stockage based on demand
Units must submit all requests for supplies to the specific SSA that
supplies the item. The SSA stock record officer then determines the source
of supply for the requested item.
Requests are prepared when--
Authorized PLL stockage levels increase.
Items are added to the unit equipment authorization.
Maintenance personnel need repair parts not carried on PLL, although
The QSS and self-service supply center (SSSC) lines at the direct
supply unit are at zero balance and your request is high priority.
Stocks need to be replenished.
Priority designators for all requests for issue are determined according to
the UMMIPS described in AR 725-50.
Commanders will personally review or
delegate, in writing, to specific persons the authority to review all high-
priority requests for issue based on UND A and 3 (PDs 01 through 08). This
review is done before the requests for issue are sent to your Materiel
Use of Forms to Request Supplies. The DA Form 2765 (Request for Issue or
Turn-In) Prepunched/Preprinted (Figure 32) is primarily used to request
initial issue, expendable, durable, or nonexpendable supplies listed in the
AMDF. The DA Form 2765 Manually Prepared (Figure 33) on page 118 is used
when a prepunched/preprinted DA Form 2765 is not available.
