inventory and begin a crosscheck of the numbers for
each transaction since that time.
If, upon completion of a recheck, the balance and
inventory still indicates a registered item is missing,
you should identify the number of the missing item and
source from which it was supposedly received and
perform the following:
· If the mailer is served by your activity, notify that
person that the article is missing and determine if
the article may have been accidentally returned.
· If the mailers response is negative, you should
then contact all units or activities to which
registered articles were dispatched during the
reporting period. Determine if the item may
have been included in a pouch, but not listed on
the bill, or if the item was accepted in error.
· In cases where the mailer is not served locally,
you should contact the dispatching activity by
phone, E-mail, or naval message.
