Lesson 1/Learning Event 1
Once the followup request to get information on earlier requests has been received by the SSA, review
the stock records for any record of the original request.
-If no record of the document is found and the DIC is AF1, return the followup request with
status code BF (supplier will not take any future action). If the DIC is AT1, treat the followup document
as an original request for issue and process.
-If a record of the original request is found and current supply or shipment status is available,
prepare an AE1 (supply status) or AS1 (shipment status) card duplicating the information from the file.
Next, send the copy of the AE1 or AS1 status card to the customer.
-If a record of the original request is available, but with no current status, and the request was
sent to a supply source, take the following steps: Make a followup transaction under AR 725-50,
chapter 3, section VII, and send it to the supply source. Make a status card, DIC AE1, with a status code
B5. Provide the status card to the customer. File the customer's followup and the followup transaction
that was sent to the supply source.
-If a record of the original request is available but no current status is shown, and the request has
been back ordered, find the latest status on replenishment requisitions. Make a status card, DIC AE1,
with the latest status. If the original request is in the process of being issued, ignore the followup
transaction. Destroy the DIC AF1 document.
-If a record of the original request is available, but with no current status, the request is treated
for followup as a customer's request and processed when the request has no record of being passed, back
ordered, or satisfied. If the result of the availability edit indicates that the request will be satisfied by
passing to another supply source, send a request for followup, DIC AT___, to the supply source.
