Many of the errors that occur on procurement
documents and the hassles that result from
these errors can be avoided. However, when-
ever errors do appear, you, as a senior Ships
Serviceman and as an auditor, must be able
to spot them, to correct them, or to bring them
to the attention of someone else who will resolve
As an auditor, you should establish a system
for checking the format of the information con-
tained in a procurement document with that
indicated in the procurement catalog or bulletin
or in your official publications. You can find the
detailed steps for preparing procurement
documents in the Ships Serviceman 3 & 2, module
2, and in your current NAVSUP P-487.
