All supplies must be inspected and distributed to the relevant department or storage once identification, verification, and documentation of receipt, custody, and stowage are accomplished.
What is a material receipt?
Responsibility for receipts becomes even more important when receiving government-owned goods because of the variety of receipts and the need for accountability.
What receipt documentation do you need?
Receipt sheets come in a variety of styles.
The DoD Single Line Item Release/Receipt Document, DD Form 1348, is the most often encountered receipt (Fig. 5-4). Regardless of the receipt document format, the end-use recipient must:
- Date the receipt document upon receipt
- Circle the amount accepted
- Sign the receipt document to show receipt
How to receive procedures?
When receiving little amounts of goods on a regular basis, there is no need to make any particular arrangements for receiving them. Supplies should be stored in a central location out of the way until preliminary identification and package counting are complete. After that, classify goods according to where they will be used (a department or storage).
