the time of request, a control number is auto-
magically assigned to the NAVSUP Form 973.
After the NAVSUP Form 973 is prepared,
there are certain procedures that you must follow
when using it. First, the document must be
distributed properly. The original and duplicate
copy are given to the bulk storeroom custodian
to issue the stock. The triplicate copy is retained
by the recordskeeper. The quadruplicate copy is
given to the sales outlet or service activity operator
receiving the stock.
On receipt of the original and duplicate copy
of the NAVSUP Form 973, the bulk storeroom
custodian will break out the stock. The bulk store-
room custodian must record the quantities broken
out on the two documents and sign and forward
the original to the office recordskeeper while
retaining the duplicate copy for his or her records.
The sales outlet or service activity operator will
not have access to the original or the duplicate
copy. Once the stock is received in the sales outlet
or service activity, the operator records the
quantities received on the quadruplicate copy of
the NAVSUP Form 973, acknowledges receipt of
the stock by signing the quadruplicate copy, and
forwards it directly to the recordskeeper.
