Lesson l/Learning Event 2
Once the request is received at the SSA, the DIC AFC is checked to ensure that EDDs are requested for
PD 01-08 only. If the status is later than that shown on the AFC document, make a new status card
(DIC AE1 or AS1) showing the new status and send it to the customer.
If no better status is shown and the original request was passed to a higher source of supply, the
following procedures apply:
-Make a DIC AE1 card with status code B5 and send to the customer.
-Make a DIC AFC transaction duplicating the entries on the customer's AFC document and send
to the supply source under AR 725-50, chapter 3, section VII.
-File a copy of the customer's AFC card, the AFC document that was created, and the AE1 status
card. If a better status is not available and the original request was back ordered, respond to the
customer with a DIC AE1 card with a status code B5. Finally, if the customer's request is in the process
of being filled, disregard and destroy the DIC AFC document.
