Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder Chapter 1. New Commander/Primary Hand Receipt Holder Task List
1-1. General This chapter outlines suggested tasks to complete prior to taking command and signing for your units equipment as the Primary Hand Receipt Holder (PRHR). This is a general guideline based on experience and not all-inclusive. You can also use this as a reference throughout your command time. Note: 0 (zero) noted below is the date you assume command of your unit or activity. In addition, wherever the term Change of Command is used it also applies to a Change of Primary Hand Receipt Holder. -90 Days: Upon receiving orders as the Incoming Commander, request access to the Unit SupplyEnhanced (US-E) system through your Supply Sergeant and/or Property Book Officer (PBO). Coordinate and schedule the Change of Command Inventory with your higher headquarters and Outgoing Commander. Schedule a meeting with your new unit supply personnel and PBO to discuss the upcoming Change of Command Inventory. -60 Days: Request a current copy of the primary hand receipt for review. Request a copy of Unit Equipment Listing. Remain in contact with your future PBO and supply personnel for any changes or concerns. Receive and review the non-expendable Shortage Annexes.

-30 Days Request an Asset Visibility Report. Request a due in listing activity register. If you have not received your US-E access, follow up with your next higher HQs. Inventory the equipment with the Outgoing Commander. Review all sub-hand receipts, component hand receipts and shortage annexes for proper signature and date. If you cannot complete the Change of Command inventory in 30 days, request an extension in writing from your higher HQs. Zero Day Review and sign the primary hand receipt after all adjustments are completed. +30 Days Ensure that any missing or damaged components discovered during the inventories are on request and placed on a shortage annex. 4

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder
+60 Days Ensure that sub-hand receipts, components lists and shortage annexes remain current. +90 Days Maintain your primary hand receipts current by conducting cyclic inventories as directed by higher HQs. Check end items for completeness. Timely report any discrepancies, and lost, damaged and destroyed equipment.

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder Chapter 2. What is US-E
2-1. Introduction a. Unit Supply-Enhanced (US-E) is a web-based program, fully interactive, menu-driven, automated combat support system used in your supply room for property accountability and management reports for your unit. In order to access this system you must have a valid Army Knowledge Online (AKO) account. Your AKO login and password will also be your US-E login and password. Prior to taking command, you should request access to US-E from the PBO for your Unit Identification Code (UIC). When you are granted access to the US-E system, go to https://pbuse.us.army.mil to log in. The Property Book Enhanced (PB-E) also uses this same database. Neither, you or your supply sergeant will have access to PB-E. b. The intent of this Survival Guide is to provide you with information and aid you during your command. Inventories are a vital part of command but not the only part. This system has a variety of functions (discussed in 2-3) and benefits to assist you in your command. One of which is real-time visibility. c. Unlike its predecessor, US-E does not require you to load additional software onto a computer to use its basic functions. You can access it from any computer that has internet access which allows you to conduct logistics business easier and quicker. 2-2. Purpose a. The purpose of this guide is to provide you with basic familiarization on the US-E system. This guide does not to replace the End User Manual (EUM) which provides an in depth explanation of all menus and terms. 2-3. Functions a. There are ten functional areas that you can use when working with the US-E system. (1) Administration - Discusses the capability, use, and function of the administration menu. (2) Catalog - Use the Catalog function to query the Standard Catalog, update select information on the Standard Catalog, add/modify/delete User Created Catalog, view Catalog Reports, view/maintain component catalog records, and to view/maintain Asset Description Updates. (3) Property Book - This section contains the primary processes required for property book operation. (4) Hand Receipt - The Hand Receipt functional area contains processes designed to manage individual unit hand receipts at both the Property Book Office and unit levels. 6

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder
(5) MILSTRIP/Order Item - Provides an overview of the MILSTRIP/Order function. Detailed instructions are provided in Chapter 9 of the EUM. (6) Activity Register - The Activity Register is an historic record of the supply and property transactions that have processed for your unit. (7) Asset Visibility This function provides total visibility of assets on-hand at the unit level along with related information. (8) Reports - The Reports function provides the capability to produce specific listings and reports that are not included in other functional areas. (9) Ammo - This area is used to request, receive and turn-in ammunition as well as maintain ammunition control documents and import and export files. (10) Interfaces - The Interfaces menu provides the capability to interface with the Battle Command Sustainment Support System (BCS3), SARSS-1, SAMSI/TDA, ULLS- Air/Ground, and Automated Transaction Processing.

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder Chapter 3. Authorizations
3-1. General a. The authorizations section allows the user to view by Line Item Number (LIN), quantity and nomenclature all of the equipment that a unit is authorized by The Army Authorization Document System (TAADS). Tables of Distribution Allowances (TDA) or Modified Tables of Organizational Equipment (MTOE) are the TAADS documents most people are familiar with. TAADS documents and information are also commonly referred to as LOGTAADS. The terms are interchangeable. NOTE: TAADS Authorizations are updated by the Logistics Support Activity (LOGSA) automatically. b. A snapshot of the Authorization screen is below, (Figure 3-1). The Add Authorization tab and the Unit Identification Code (UIC) Paragraph Listing are not available at unit level.

Figure 3-1 Authorizations

Note: At the bottom of the screen there is a search button. You may use this button to search for a particular item using various field criteria. 3-2. LOGTAADS Visibility Report a. This process displays and prints the LOGTAADS Visibility Listing. The Visibility Listing contains LOGTAADS previous authorizations, the present authorizations and two future authorization documents. By viewing the visibility listing, you can see equipment changes to your MTOE/TDA for the present and future two year periods. b. The visibility report also allows you to track shortages equipment and excess. The screen reflects the Required, Authorized and On Hand quantity of each MTOE/TDA item 8

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder
for the past, current and future documents. Therefore, you can see which items are going to be short or excess according to what MTOE/TDA changes are going to take place.

Figure 3-2 LOGTAADS Authorization Listings

3-3. LOGTAADS Change Listing a. This process displays and prints the LOGTAADS change listing. This listing displays additions, deletions, quantity, and Equipment Readiness Code (ERC) changes to LOGTAADS authorized items resulting from the LOGTAADS broadcast/projections. b. The change listing report also allows you to track equipment shortages and excess. The screen reflects the Required, Authorized and On Hand quantity of each MTOE/TDA item for the past, current and future documents. Therefore, you can see which items are going to be short or excess according to what MTOE/TDA changes are going to take place.

Figure 3-3 LOGTAADS Authorization Listing

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder
c. The biggest difference between the Visibility Report and the Change Listing is that the visibility report reflects the LIN of every item on the MTOE/TDA, whereas the Change Listing only reflects the LINs that actually change either in quantity or ERC on the previous, current and one projected MTOE/TDA document. 3-4. How to access these listings in Unit Supply Enhanced (US-E) a. From the US-E main menu select Property Book. b. Select Authorizations. c. Select View/Update Authorizations. d. Select LOGTAADS Visibility Listing. e. Select LOGTAADS Change Listing. NOTE: If you have questions about any of these screens consult the End Users Manual for a quick reference. Your unit supply personnel or PBO may be able to offer some assistance as well. 3-5. MILSTRIP/Order Item Overview: The MILSTRIP/Order Item function provides the capability to manually input supply transactions. The input information is edited and error messages are provided for user action when the transaction is saved to the database. Also, when the transactions are saved, this function creates and maintains records on the activity register and generates the necessary output transactions for interfacing systems. Specific procedures for all actions in this section can be found in chapter 9 of the EUM. See AR 725-50, Requisition, Receipt, and Issue System, for a complete list of MILSTRIP codes and their explanation. The processing of CL II and CL VII requests is generally dependant on authorization documents (i.e. MTOE and TDA). Review approved documents as they are posted. IAW AR 710-2, Supply Policy Below the National Level, equipment shortages can be ordered up to 365 days from the effective date of the new authorization document. If LOGTAADs has been updated and posted to your hand receipt the REQ column will reflect the current authorization document and the AUTH column will reflect the pending document. Local SOP should dictate who is responsible for ordering shortages. Generally, Procurement Appropriation Army (PAA) funded items are prepared and ordered by the PBO and stock funded requests are prepared at the unit level and turned in to the PB office for processing (note: Figure 3-5 Non-Expendable Request Flow Chart). The Army Materiel Category Structure Code (MATCAT) can help identify PAA and stock funded items. The MATCAT positions are as follows: 1. Position one - Materiel Category and Inventory Manager or NICP/SICA 2. Position two - Appropriation and Budget Activity Accounts 3. Position three - Management Inventory Segment of the Category Structure 4. Position four - Specific Group/Generic Code 5. Position five - Specific Weapons Systems/End Item or Homogeneous Group of Items Code A general rule; if the second character in the MATCAT is A Q the item is PAA funded (DA purchased). If the second character is a number or R Z the item is stock funded (unit purchased). 10

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder
3-6. Request (A0_): This process provides the capability to submit a request for issue transaction for non-property book items. Note: MILSTRIP transactions (not suppressed) are sent to the Supply Support Activity (SSA) using the interfaces, SARSS-1, create transaction files (To download or SFTP) function.

3-7. Requisition Decision Making Process: The requisition decision making process will provide guidance to the unit supply sergeant regarding the processing of his/her requisitions. 1. A requisition is generated for an item. If the item is expendable or durable, an expendable document number will be generated. If the item is non-expendable or class IX a want list is generated. 2. When a want list is generated for a non-expendable item, it is automatically forwarded to the PBO for approval. If the item is PAA funded it is free issue; if it is stock funded, then the unit must pay for it. 3. PAA funded items can be approved by the PBO. Stock funded items require the approval of the Company Commander, Battalion S4 and the PBO. 3-8. Receipt (D6S): This process provides the capability to submit a receipt acknowledgement transaction. Receipts must be processed for all items that are received. Upon receipt of items/property the receiving personnel will sign and date the paper receipt document (DD Form 1348-1, DD Form 250, etc.), make pen and ink corrections as needed, and annotate the serial/registration/lot numbers (if applicable). This information is used to input the receipt acknowledgement transaction. There are three types of receipt acknowledgement transactions: receipt of items due-in, receipt of items not due-in, and receipt of items for closed document numbers. When equipment requires serial, registration, or lot number tracking, the system automatically displays the add serial, registration or lot numbers button. 3-9. Equipment Release Priority System (ERPS), Logistics Information Warehouse (LIW) Requisition Validation (REQVAL) and Major Item Requisition Validation (MIRV): The Equipment Release Priority System (ERPS) was developed because the 12

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder
Army wholesale logistics system was receiving multiple priorities and direct distribution guidance from many different sources. The resulting piecemeal distribution was often not in accordance with scheduled documentation changes and caused increases in the number of units reporting NMC due to low equipment on-hand ratings. The ERPS is aimed toward better integration of readiness and modernization. It has been designed to assist item managers in determining the order in which requisitions should be filled and to eliminate receipt of multiple priorities and directed distribution guidance. The ERPS brings together all HQDA distribution priority guidance, the Equipment Readiness Code (ERC) and Dynamic Army Priority List (DARPL) into a single source for near-term execution. While the LIW REQVAL application provides a single source for validating requisition shortages, ERPS extracts the current years shortages from the LIW REQVAL application database and establishes a priority release sequence for filling the shortages. This product is provided to wholesale and retail customers on a monthly basis to use in equipment distribution. This includes a data feed into the wholesale systems (CCSS/LMP) via the Major Item Requisition Validation (MIRV) front-end edit process. The Major Item Requisition Validation (MIRV) system is defined in Army Regulation 725-50 as a wholesale supply source program (Commodity Command Standard System (CCSS)) which provides the major item manager with a method of maintaining valid backordered requisitions in release sequence under the proper line item number (LIN). This system provides automated support for major item requisitioning under MILSTRIP and supports the functions of materiel managers at the commodity commands. The data comes from the Requisition/Validation system maintained by the Army Materiel Command (AMC) Logistics Support Activity (LOGSA) (link to the LOGSA homepage: Logistics Support Activity (LOGSA) Homepage). (Note: Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) is current vernacular for what was previously referred to as an AMC Major Subordinate Command (MSC) or Commodity Command).

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder Chapter 4. Hand Receipts
4-1. General a. Hand receipts are your primary tools to use to account for Government property. There are many ways to use hand receipts to effectively manage your property. US-E offers you an easy, automated database to create, manage, and track the property issued to your unit. b. The unit commander has the capability to print the entire unit hand receipt prior to printing the sub hand receipts.

Figure 4-1 example of how to print a unit hand receipt.

Figure 4-1a example of the unit hand receipt

4-2. How to View Hand Receipts in US-E a. The user must first log into US-E, which requires an AKO user name and approval from the Information System Security Officer (ISSO). US-E employs User Roles to control access to the various processes and functions in the system and determine the 14

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder
privileges granted within a process, read or write. Your PBO can submit the request to the ISSO to allow you to access US-E. b. To access hand receipts from the US-E Main Menu: (1) Select Hand Receipt. (2) Select Unit Level Hand Receipts. (3) Select Material Items tab. (4) Click the Find button beside the SHR No and chose the SHR you wish to view.

Figure 4-2c shows how to print a CDR sub-hand receipt

c. After opening the Unit Level Hand Receipt menu, Figure 4-2d below shows an example of a CDR sub-hand receipt.

Figure 4-2d shows an example of a CDR sub-hand receipt

4-3. What to look for on a signed hand receipt The most important quantities that a Commander should look for are in the REQ/AUTH and the On Hand columns. If the required items are not on hand they should be placed on order. The Due-in column would then show the ordered quantity. The column that reads 15

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder
(DLA) shows the date of the last action affecting that specific LIN. The signed hand receipt will also show the serial numbers of equipment if the equipment has a serial/registration code (SRC) that must be tracked, which you should verify when conducting inventories. Primary hand receipts, once signed and dated, are the accountable records of the property book officer. If the equipment has a serial number, the serial number must be verified when conducting an inventory as shown in figure 4-3a below:

Figure 4-3a

4-4. How to reconcile Hand Receipts in US-E a. Reconciling your hand receipt is a key process required to ensure that you have all of your authorized equipment properly accounted for. The main goal is to have all of your equipment sub-hand receipted so you are no longer the only person with direct responsibility. b. Within US-E, the key process to reconcile your hand receipt is to verify that the CDR Sub-Hand Receipt (SHR) does not have any property assigned to it. If the CDR SHR is blank it will typically mean that all of your equipment is properly sub-hand receipted. If property is listed on the CDR SHR check with your Supply Section to find out why. In addition to checking the CDR SHR, you should also view your Property Imbalance Report (Para 4-6). c. There are times when it will be acceptable to have equipment listed on the CDR SHR, for instance if a new item has been added by the PBO it will first appear on the CDR SHR before it is moved to the respective SHR, or when an item has been turned in but the PBO has not processed the Asset Adjustment to decrease it.

Figure 4-4b Primary Hand Receipt

4-5. Commander's Exception Listing a. The Commanders Exception Listing should be printed as requisitions occur. This option provides a listing of high priority and/or high dollar value requests. This gives the Commander a snapshot view of all the equipment that has a high dollar amount on his 17

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder
MTOE/TDA. To view the report the Commander will start at the US-E-Module Main Menu, click Reports, and then click Commander's Exception Listing to display the screen. To view the report click the First, Prev, Next, or Last buttons as desired. To search the listing for specific record(s): b. Click the Search button to display the search screen

Figure 4-5 example screen of the Commanders Exception Transaction Report

c. This report must be kept for two years. 4-6. Property Imbalance Report a. The Property Imbalance Report is a quick and easy way for you as a Commander/Primary Hand Receipt Holder to see if there is a difference between the quantity on your Primary Hand Receipt (PHR) and the quantity listed on the Sub-Hand Receipts (SHR). This report compares the quantity reflected on the PHR with the number that are sub-hand receipted and lists those items, which do not match. This report should be blank, if it isnt you need to check with your Supply Section and determine what corrective action needs to be taken. The Property Imbalance Report should be printed whenever adjustments are made to the Property Book. b. Typically if there is an imbalance it means one of two things. The first possibility is if you have equipment that was not added to your PHR but has been added by your Supply Section and issued on a SHR. If that is the case a Found On Installation (FOI) needs to be submitted to the PBO to have the additional items added to your PHR.

18

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder
c. The second possibility would be if an item had been dropped from the PHR by the PBO but was still listed on the SHR. If this occurs the supply section must move it back to the CDR SHR so it can be decreased.

Figure 4-6 Property Imbalance Report

Note: You can access this report from the Main Menu by selecting REPORTS then PROPERTY IMBALANCE. 4.7 Unit Level Asset Visibility a. The Unit Level Asset Visibility process in the hand receipt function area allows you to view, search, save in excel format and print sub-hand receipt information and component hand receipt data. It provides a detailed listing of the units equipment and the sub hand receipt holder assigned to. It also details Line Item Number (LIN) totals for the equipment. Additionally, under Component Management, you can view and print an excess, shortage and excess/shortage report of the components of the end item and a shortage annex. The Unit Level Asset Visibility Report also identifies Serial Number, Authorization, and Quantity Mismatches. If your Unit Level Asset Visibility Report contains mismatches, ensure your unit supply personnel are aware that these discrepancies require correcting.

Figure 4-7 is an example of a Unit Level Asset Visibility Report in US-E

19

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder
b. The report contains LIN and Substitute LIN (SUBLIN), National Stock Number (NSN), Primary Hand Receipt Authorization quantity (PRH AUTH Qty), Primary Hand Receipt on hand quantity (PHR O/H Qty), Primary Hand Receipt due-in quantity (PHR D/I Qty), Sub hand Receipt on hand quantity (SHR O/H Qty),Sub hand Receipt authorization quantity (SHR AUTH QTY) and mismatches. c. The hyperlinked number in SHR OH Qty column shows the number of assets assigned to a sub-hand receipt holder(s). Click on the hyperlink to view the sub-hand receipt holder(s). d. The serial number mismatch column will display the word YES if the equipment requires a serial number or lot number and does not have one assigned. e. The authorization mismatch column will display the quantity differences between the SHR AUTH Qty and the PHR AUTH Qty. Additionally, a mismatch will occur if the sub-hand receipt is not authorized the LIN. f. The QTY mismatch displays the differences between the PHR OH Qty and the SHR OH Qty and vice versa. Refer to 4-6, Property Imbalance Report, for corrective actions. 4.8 Component Data a. The component data process in the hand receipt function allows you to view, save in excel format and print the excess components report, component shortages report or a combination of both.

Figure 4-8 is an example of a component data screen

b. In the excess report tab, you will be able to select the SHR and the NSN of the end item to view. You can also select a specific component hand receipt (CHR) if there is 20

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder
more than one for the particular NSN. By selecting all in the end item field, all excess components of the sub hand receipts are displayed. This tab also allows your supply personnel to generate a Military Standard Requisitioning and Issue Procedures (MILSTRIP) Turn In transaction. c. The shortage report tab process is similar to the excess report tab but for component shortages. In this tab, your supply personnel can generate a shortage annex and a MILSTRIP request. d. The excess/shortage report is used to view a consolidated listing.

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder Chapter 5. Durable and Expendable Accountability
5-1. General AR 735-5, 28 Feb 05, chapter 7 states the guidelines that a Commander must follow to account for expendable and durable property within their unit/activity as well as what items are considered to be expendable or durable. Occasionally the PBO may require more stringent levels of accountability for items based on local SOP and criteria that they apply to the items. Likewise, as the Commander, you can require your supply personnel to account for items at a level above what the regulation states. This can be something as simple as a manual hand receipt procedure or as involved as using US-E to track these assets for you. 5-2. Benefits of US-E to Track Expendable/Durable Property Some of the benefits of using US-E to track your expendable and durable property are: Property will show up on a sub-hand receipt along with non-expendable items making it easier to track property within a single system; you can utilize the tools inherent within US-E to manage the property to determine if it is properly hand receipted; you can use US-E to order shortages and be able to track the status of those requisitions if they are requested within the MILSTRIP system; you can export information from US-E in Microsoft Excel format to use in reports, tracking programs or other such administrative management procedures. 5-3. Adding Your Own Property to US-E Before you can add expendable/durable property to US-E you must have your supply personnel work with your PBO to have support indicator code (SIC) B added to your UIC. Once this is accomplished you can add the expendable or durable property to your unit level hand receipts. Consult the EUM for instructions on how to do this. If you run into problems during the process you should contact your Combat Service Support Automation Management Office (CSSAMO). 5-4. Annual Review of Durable Property It is important to note that annually you are required to conduct a managerial review of all durable property within your unit/activity to determine if any items are missing and if there is evidence of fraud, waste, or abuse. Consult AR 735-5, 28 Feb 05, Para 7-7 b(3) for the specifics surrounding this requirement.

22

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder Chapter 6. Component Hand Receipts
6-1. General Component Hand Receipts (CHR) are accounted in accordance with AR 710-2, Para 2-10i. US-E allows you to view component hand receipts to ensure they are properly managed. It is important for the CDR/PHR to verify that the CHR is kept updated. 6-2. Component Hand ReceiptsComplete major items and ready for intended use. The Component Hand Receipt shows what components are on hand for each of the Major Items. First print the component hand receipt, conduct the inventory and account for shortages IAW AR 735-5. Have the Supply Sergeant update the CHR, print a new CHR have the Hand Receipt Holder sign and file in the sections Hand Receipt file. A CHR is used for Sets Kits and Outfits (SKO) less expendables and consumable, this will identify all the shortages for the End Item. 6-3. Accessing the Component Menu a. To access this from the US-E Main Menu: Select Hand Receipt. Select Unit Level Hand Receipts. Select COMPONENT CHR tab. b. From this point you can use the Find feature to locate the Sub-Hand Receipt Holder whose Component Hand Receipts you would like to view. Click on the END ITEM NSN of the Component Hand Receipt you wish to view and another window will open. c. From this point you can view the data on the screen or select PRINT to generate an Excel version of the Component Hand Receipt.

Figure 6-3a Sub-Hand Receipt screen

23

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder

Figure 6-3b Component Hand Receipt

6-4. Component Shortage Annexes Shortage Annexes are automatic once the CHR is updated. For items not on hand, they will be annotated as short. You are required to have all components either on hand or on order IAW AR 710-2, Para 2-10. If you have a shortage and it does not have a quantity in the D/I QTY column you need to have your supply section process a requisition. If the component is not necessary for your mission, then you will need to have a memorandum on file explaining why you have not ordered the component shortages. A Component Shortage Annex is used for to identify shortages of the End Item and is maintained at the Activity Register Level. 6-5. Adding Serial Numbers to Components Another feature is that the US-E enhances your level of accountability with the capability to add serial numbers for components (i.e. a multimeter in a tool set). Through the Component Modify option your supply section can insert the serial numbers for components you chose to track by serial number.

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder Chapter 7. Inventories
7-1. General Inventory procedures are very important for maintaining 100% accountability of government property. There are several types of inventories that are mandatory. US-E helps automate many of the functions inherent in the inventory process and allows you to monitor the progress and completion of those inventories. The following sections will address some of the more common types of inventories. 7-2. Weapons and Ammunition / Other than Weapons Ammunition Inventories a. Weapons and ammunition inventories are required to be completed monthly. AR 710-2 table 2-2 addresses the specific requirements for this inventory. The Responsible Officer conducts monthly inventory of weapons by serial number. Report any discrepancies to the Property Book Officer immediately b. Other than weapons and ammunition inventories are also known as sensitive item inventories. They are required to be conducted quarterly. AR 710-2 table 2-2 addresses the specific requirements for this inventory. For weapons or ammunition that are signed out or in maintenance, make sure they are supported by proper documentation. c. To view these reports in US-E: (1) Click the UIC Find button and then type the desired UIC and click the Go button or click the desired UIC link. (2) Click the First, Prev, Next, or Last button as desired to page through the listing. d. To print the Sensitive Item from the Sensitive Item Listing screen click the print button and open the file using Microsoft Excel. Once the report is displayed in Excel: (1) (2) (3) (4) Click File located on the toolbar to display the File Menu. Click Print and select the desired printing options. Click OK to print listing. Click close to exit from Excel.

7-3. Cyclic/Annual Inventory a. You are required to inventory 100% of the property listed on your Primary Hand Receipt (PHR) annually IAW AR 710-2, table 2-2. This inventory schedule can be either: (1) Annual Inventory: All property is inventoried during a single period as set forth by your PBO.

25

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder
(2) Cyclic Inventory: 10% monthly, 25% quarterly, or 50% semi-annual so as to add up to 100% each year. The PBO provides a written list of LINs to be inventoried each period. b. To view an annual/cyclic inventory log onto US-E. From the Main Menu, click Reports and then click Cyclic inventory Listing to display the screen.

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder Chapter 8. Activity Registers (formerly referred as the Document Register)
8-1. General a. DA PAM 710-2-1 defines document registers as: The document register is a record of document numbers assigned to supply documents. It serves as the suspense file for open supply transactions. b. In simpler terms the document register is a tool you can use to view what your supply personnel have placed on order. In addition you should pay particular attention to certain information within the document register. 8-2. Priorities The priority designator (PD) establishes how quickly you wish to receive an item. The lower the PD, the higher the priority. You have three two-digit PDs assigned to your unit/activity based on your units Force Activity Designator (FAD). Consult DA PAM 710-2-1, Table 2-1 for a list of Force Activity Designator (FAD) and their associated PDs. The units FAD is listed in the administrative section of your MTOE/TDA. When in doubt contact your PBO to determine your FAD. You are required to initial all Urgency of Need (UND) A and B high priority requests on your document register. You may delegate this requirement on a DA Form 1687 if you wish. 8-3. What the Activity Register Tells You If filled out properly, the activity register will tell you what, if any, items are on order. This is important because it lets you know if your supply personnel are placing shortages on order. In addition, the status of each requisition should be listed on the activity register. There are numerous status codes. If you are unfamiliar with them you should consult the End User Manual (EUM) or the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Customer Handbook. If your unit does not have a DLA Customer Handbook on hand you can download it at http://www.dla.mil/J-4/secured/handbook.asp 8-4. How to View an Activity Register in US-E a. In US-E you can view this information through the activity register section of the program. You can view the Activity Register Report (All) to see all items on order for your unit. Section 10 of the EUM provides detailed information on how to access this information complete with screenshots. b. Your supply section should print out the activity register on a regular basis and have it on hand for your review and/or for inspection purposes. The frequency that the report should be generated should be annotated in your local supply SOP.

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder Chapter 9. Asset Visibility
9-1. General The Asset Visibility function provides total visibility of assets owned (on-hand) at the the parent level, along with essential related information. The information is used to support asset reporting and asset management decisions. The information appears to the user on various reports and can be viewed online or printed. IAW AR 220-1, all units with UICs ending in AA are required to submit Unit Status Reports. Frequency of the reporting requirement varies and is directed by higher command. 9-2. Asset Visibility Section in US-E From the US-E-Module Main Menu, click on Asset Visibility, As a Commander/ PHRH; there are two processes that you will be primarily concerned with, Material Item Rollup and Unit Equipment Readiness Listing (UERL). The Army Materiel Status System (AMSS) process, when used, produces the AMSS report in US-E after a download from ULLS-G is imported. This function is seldom used.

Figure 9-2 US-E-Module Main Menu, Asset Visibility Menu

9-3. Material Item Rollup a. From the Asset Visibility menu, click on Material Item Rollup. In this process you will be able to view the Unit Equipment Readiness Listing, the Material Item Report and the Excess/Shortages Reports (individually and combined). You will also be able to search and view serial material item. This listing can be used to research a particular LIN. b. The Material Item tab allows you to view all current authorized assets on hand within your UIC in LIN sequence. It also provides information regarding any requisitions on order against a LIN in the D/I Qty column. Click on the underscored LIN to view additional property book information at the bottom of the screen. Serial numbers are not displayed on this screen; but a yes will appear in the Ser/Reg/Lot column if required. 29

30

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder
d. The Search/View Serial Item tab allows you to view all of yours assets with a serial and registration number. This report also includes the name of the HR holder. By clicking display duplicate serial numbers in the upper right corner, you will see all like items that have duplicate serial numbers in US-E. If you have a duplicate serial number displayed, verify the serial number on the equipment for accuracy to ensure that the correct serial number is on your property book. If your serial number is correct, notify your supply section or PBO. The other unit listed with the same serial number will need notified. If your serial number is incorrect, inform your supply section for correction. Duplicate serial numbers are common for equipment that is cataloged as requiring one but a formal serial number is not assigned. The unit assigns a serial number to avoid an error on the Commanders HR.

Figure 9-3d is an example of a Serial Number Listing

e. You can tailor your reports or views by LIN or PBIC by using the search button at the bottom of the screen. You can also print the reports or save them in excel format.

31

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder

Figure 9-3e is an example of a Duplicate Serial Number Listing NOTE: Notice LIN M75714. This LIN previously required a serial number. Due to catalog changes, serial number accounting is not required.

9-4. Equipment Readiness Listing a. The UERL is an indicator of the units equipment on hand (EOH) status which develops the S-level (Supply-level) that calculates the units on hand quantity against the required quantity of equipment. It only shows assets required and authorized by LOGTAADS. By default, you are shown the current year authorizations, however, you can choose future effective dates if desired. Normally, only UICs ending in AA are required to report, but for management tools, other UICs may have to report. Only higher echelons can roll all your reporting derivative UICs into one report. b. To view your report, click on Unit Equipment Readiness Listing and select your UIC if not automatically populated. Select the effective date.

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder Chapter 10. Organizational Clothing and Individual Equipment (OCIE)
a. The OCIE functional area is used to manage the units clothing and individual issue equipment loosely referred to as TA-50. In this menu, the Unit Supply Sergeant can issue, maintain and inventory the OCIE by adding, maintaining, transferring and deleting Soldiers issue files related to clothing and individual equipment. The OCIE menu provides roll-up and asset visibility reports to get a snapshot of issued OCIE and shelfcount. The issued quantities and the on hand quantities should total to the OCIE listed on the Commanders Primary Hand Receipt maintained by the PBO.

Figure 10a OCIE Main Menu

b. The Reports tab in the OCIE menu is of special interest to the new Commander/PHRH as it provides two key reports essential for inventories and day-to-day operations. These two reports are the OCIE Roll-up (OCIE 8) and the Unit Level (UL) Asset Visibility Report (OCIE-7). (1) The OCIE Roll-up Report is used to view the OCIE by unit or by clothing size. This report is exported in MS-Excel format and it provides the flexibility to tailor the report to meet unit-specific needs, i.e. view by specific LIN quantities or the units complete OCIE record. (2) The system automatically saves a copy of each report generated for future reference.

Figure 10c Completed OCIE Roll-up Report by Clothing Size

d. The UL Asset Visibility Report is the bread and butter report for tracking issued OCIE and the on-shelf count. As mentioned earlier, the Unit Supply Sergeant maintains the Soldiers Issue files by adding, deleting and transferring records as needed. This report provides you a live picture of the OCIE issued to the Soldiers in the unit as well as what is supposed to be on the shelf.

Figure 10d UL Asset Visibility Report

e. Click on the hyperlink quantity in the SHR (Bulk)/Clothing Record column to view the UL OCIE Asset Visibility Report. Compare the quantities of the individual SHRs with the PHR OH QTY column. Negative OH QTY Mismatches are accounted utilizing the property adjustment procedures identified earlier in this guide. Positive QTY OH Mismatches are reported picked up as Found On Installation and posted by the PBO.

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder Chapter 11. Chiefs Helpful Hints
11-1. General a. Schedule a briefing with Property Book Officer and or Supply Personnel. b. Ensure current on-hand quantities are reflected on Primary Hand Receipt. c. Identify personnel and resources to assist in the inventory. d. Ensure current supply catalogs, component listings, technical manuals, and publications are readily available for the inventory. You can visit the LOGSA website to look for updated checklists by using the following links: SCs: https://weblog.logsa.army.mil/sko/select_dt.cfm TMs: https://www.logsa.army.mil/etms/online.cfm e. Schedule the inventory and ensure it is posted on the training schedule. f. Provide your intent/plan and ensure is disseminated. g. Inventory everything yourself! See it, touch it, feel it. Don't let anybody inventory for you. It is your responsibility to conduct the inventory. h. Do not delegate physical inventory action. This is your personal responsibility and insurance against further pecuniary liability. i. Complete the inventory as soon as possible. Do not delay the inventory because you are trying to locate missing equipment. j. Make full use of the time you have. This may mean having Soldiers work longer than a normal duty day. You will never again have the time to get this straight. k. Do not delay the inventory process past the allotted time unless an extension is obtained in writing from the next higher command. l. Ensure your supply room, mil-vans, cages or other storage areas are clean and organized. If they are not, this can create delays. m. Conduct a 100% physical count by serial number on all equipment on the hand receipt. Account for all on hand property book items. When you are verifying serial numbers for weapons and sensitive items, take them out of their racks, storage boxes, cases, etc. n. When dealing with items that are common across the unit (BII for 32 like vehicles, etc.) mark each with a spot of paint or marker as they're counted to prevent them from showing up again. 39

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder
o. Ensure all authorized property (MTOE/TDA) is on hand or on order. p. Carry a copy of the HR & component annexes with you to inventory with. Record all issues or observations on them and then ensure you personally secure them for the rest of your command. They are invaluable records when others might "disappear". q. Review and analyze (US-E) listings and reports. r. Ensure discrepancies noted are corrected and change documents reflect on the primary hand receipt prior to signing it. s. Ensure that everything on your property book is signed out. A common practice is to first, hand receipt property to all sections/end-users, then everything that is not issued or is located in the supply room is signed over to the Supply Sergeant. t. Identify shortages and make adjustments in accordance with AR 735-5. u. Check with the PBO to obtain appropriate disposition for excess property. v. Verify all equipment on work order or in calibration. w. Verify that sub hand receipts are current, dated and signed. x. Ensure that 100% of unit soldiers have a valid clothing record and TA-50 issue; this is an annual inventory requirement. If you have any questions or want to verify a situation feel free to contact your PBO or Central Issue Facility manager. y. Give your supply personnel a chance to do their jobs. Only well-trained and totally dedicated personnel who receive command support can develop a good supply system. Notify PBO of all unresolved property book issues. z. Ensure all serial number discrepancies and adjustment documents have been posted to the property book and hand receipt. Correct every serial number discrepancy before you sign the primary hand receipt. aa. Reconcile all supply documents that you sign. It can sometimes be tedious and time consuming but remember the Army does not consider you too busy to pay for the property lost under your care. Your signature says you have done your part to standard. bb. If you do not resolve the problem immediately, it becomes your problem once you take command. Resolve all matters during your inventory.

Unit Supply-Enhanced Survival Guide for the New Commander and Primary Hand Receipt Holder Chapter 12. Summary
12-1. This guide is not designed to replace the numerous regulations that govern property accountability and good supply discipline in your organization. However, we have provided you a valuable tool that unit commanders before you wish that they had had during their tenure. The US-E is a web-based program designed to facilitate and expedite the myriad of property accounting procedures and provides immediate real-time results. It also allows you to access your primary hand receipt any time you want as well as tailor reports to unit-specific needs. Long gone are the days in which you are waiting on higher HQ to complete an action affecting your property record; you can now monitor these actions and work closely with the PBO to ensure they are completed. Your Unit Supply Sergeant is the tip of the spear in matters relating to property accountability. Support him/her by making the time to complete scheduled inventories, both regulatory and from higher HQ (i.e. command directed). These are YOUR inventories so ensure they are conducted IAW the applicable regulations. Hold all Soldiers in your unit responsible in properly maintaining and safeguarding Army property assigned to them. 12-2. By no means does this guide terminate your working relationship with the PBO as he/she will continue to provide you extensive research and timely answers to your property accountability concerns.
