the command duty officer, as prescribed in the SORM.
Before proceeding with any unfamiliar transfer action,
(e.g., Maintenance Assistance Modules (MAIMs)) the
NAVSUP P-485 should be consulted.
TRANSFERS TO OTHER AFLOAT UNITS
Transfers to other afloat units are made in response
to a request when the material is available and can be
spared. Requests are normally received on a DD Form
1348, but may be received by letter, message, or other
means. The DD Form 1348 is prepared in the same
manner a requisition to a supply activity except that the
document identifier is left blank
Availability of material is determined by the supply
officer after considering the quantity on hand and the
anticipated usage until replenishment can be obtained.
The supply officer may also request the advice of the
using department before transferring repair parts. If
material is not available, the request is rejected.
Additional entries requested by the NAVSUP P-485
should be made by the transferring ship. An example
of an intership transfer document is shown in figure 8-9.
When the request is received by other means, it
must contain the NSN, unit of issue, quantity, document
number, fund code, and project code. A DD Form
1348-1 is then prepared by the transferring ship. An
example is shown in figure 8-10. Refer to the NAVSUP
P-485 for detailed preparation and
Posting Transfers to Stock Records
Transfers of material are posted to
cards in the same manner as issues, except that the
quantity transferred is circled. This is done because
transfers are not considered as usage or demand since
the material was not used on your ship.
Receipts from other ships are posted and issued
exactly the same as receipts from a supply activity.
Each month the value of transfers to other ships and
afloat units is summarized to the supporting DFAS
using the Summary of Material Receipts/Expenditures,
NAVCOMPT Form 176. This action effects the
necessary appropriation, allotment, and cost accounting
Refer to the NAVSUP P-485 for
preparation and submission procedures.
