TRANSFER FROM OTHER SHIPS
Emergency requirements may be obtained from
ships other than supply ships and tenders if the material
is available and can be spared. The request may be
made on a DD Form 1348, NAVSUP 1250-1, or by
message and should contain the same incarnation as a
requisition to a supply activity except that the routing
identifier is left blank. If the requested material is not
available for issue, the requisition is returned to the
requisitioner since ships do not hold requisitions on
backorder for later issue.
Equipage is a term applied to items that are not
consumed in use, and usually are of greater value and
have a longer useful life than supplies.
There are two categories of equipage: controlled
equipage and other equipage.
Equipage allowances are established in the COSAL
Stock-Number Sequence List-Operating Space Items
(SNSL-OSI), COSAL parts I and II, and instructions
and publications issued by commands and offices. The
COSAL allowances were discussed in chapter 3 and are
the most frequently referred to. The heads of
departments are responsible for submitting requests for
equipage requirements to the supply officer, who then
requisitions the needed items.
Equipage that is not controlled is procured in the
same manner as other operating space items. The
allowance is intended as a guide and the quantity on
board is determined by need and OPTAR availability.
When a request is received from a department head, the
supply officer submits the requisition direct to the
Selected items are designated controlled equipage
and require increased management afloat due to anyone
or a combination of the following:
1. Essential for the protection of life, or
2. relatively valuable and easily converted to
NAVSUP P-485 contains a list of items designated
as controlled equipage.
The type and quantity of
controlled equipage on the ships allowance list are
mandatory allowances. Ships should carry a full
allowance of these items at all times. Since each ship
has a definite allowance, deficiencies or shortages can
be determined and are budgeted separately in the ships
When an item of controlled equipage is lost,
damaged or otherwise unfit for use, it should be
replaced promptly provided funds are available. Such
replacement of missing or unserviceable controlled
equipage must be substantiated by a survey and
accompanied by a NAVSUP Form 1250-1.
Requests for deficiencies are submitted to the
supply officer on NAVSUP Form 1250-1 by the head
of department having custody of the controlled
equipage. Upon receipt of the above issue requests,
procurement documents are prepared by supply on
either DD Form 1348 or DD Form 1348-6 in
accordance with NAVSUP P-485. These requisitions
are then submitted directly to the supply activity
without approval of higher authority.
When controlled equipage is required in excess of
allowance for a particular operation or short period of
time, an in-excess requisition maybe submitted to the
TYCOM (type commander) for approval. The
requisition is submitted with a letter of transmittal
which should state the circumstances of the need.
If additional controlled equipage is needed on a
permanent basis, an Allowance Change Request must
be submitted to the authority that established the
allowance. The request should include the allowance
list reference, quantity allowed, additional quantity
needed, and the reason for that need. The request is
submitted via the chain of command and no
