appendix C of the Ships Store Afloat, NAVSUP
File SSA-1 is the financial control file. It
contains the Ships Store Afloat Financial Control
Record, NAVSUP Form 235. The primary
purpose of the NAVSUP Form 235 is to
determine accurately whether a ships store
activity is operating within the prescribed
monetary limits. The NAVSUP Form 235 must
be balanced and closed out at the end of each
accounting period and at any other time when
directed by the commanding officer.
Preparing the NAVSUP Form 235
In manual recordskeeping, the Ships Store
Afloat Financial Control Record is prepared at
the start of the accounting period. A separate
column must be kept on the NAVSUP Form 235
for each activity operated aboard ship including
Each retail store.
Each different category of vending
machine operated by each different person. When
there are two or more vending machine operators,
separate columns will be kept for machines
operated by each person. This will include
canned-drink vending machines, cup-type vending
machines, and other than drink vending machines.

snack bar retail items and snack bar manufactured

Record is also maintained in the ROM files. The
ROM-generated NAVSUP Form 235 is similar to

NAVSUP Form 235 for each store. ROM users
may print the ROM-generated NAVSUP Form
235 via the resale operations reports function. The
resale operations reports menu (fig. 2-1) is
