2-4. DD Form 1544, Continued
The designated individual who performs the revalidation supplies the control
officer with a statement that indicates the--
Book serial number.
Date of issue.
Number of unused sheets on hand.
Number of sheets that are accounted for through turn-in as indicated on DA
For missing sheets, the control officer also provides a copy of the AR 15-6
investigation. The control officer maintains the revalidation statements on file
until the books are turned in. The unit audit review report reflects that the DD
Form 1544 books were revalidated. The control officer provides a copy of the
statement to the unit. The unit maintains the copy of the statement on file with
the DD Form 1544 book.
Annually, units turn in any book that has been outstanding for three years. They
turn in these books to the cash meal payment book control officer. Require
annual turn-in regardless of the number of unused sheets that remain in the book.
Commanders of the unit organizations that operate dining facilities request,
DD Form 1544
receive, and turn in Cash Meal Payment Books. Alternatively, the FSO does
so. The installation or the consolidated headquarters control officer issues these
payment books as appropriate. The dining facility seven-day requirement
determines the number of books to maintain on hand. Safeguard DD Form 1544
books and individual sheets at all times.
The commander who has operational control over the dining facility may appoint
a responsible individual to receive cash meal payment sheets. This individual
also prepares turn-in documents for the cash collected from the sale of meals. He
also performs other administrative duties that are associated with cash.
NOTE: Under no circumstances are FAs or the FOS authorized to receive DD
Form 1544 books or turn-in cash.
