2-4. DD Form 1544, Continued
The installation or the consolidated headquarters control officer issues the
individual DD Form 1544 sheets in sheet-number sequence to the FOS or to a
designated representative. The issues are recorded on the cash meal payment
sheet register that is included with the DD Form 1544 book. The cover of the
cash meal payment book provides the requirements and the procedures for
completing this form.
The issuing activity may issue DD Form 1544 sheets to the headcounter for use
outside the installation dining facility. When this occurs, the FOS uses DA Form
3546-R (Control Record for Dining Facility--DD Form 1544) to record the issue.
The procedure for close-out is as follows:
The last headcounter closes out each DD Form 1544 as it is completed.
He then returns it with the cash that he collects for that sheet.
The headcounter returns it to the FSO or to a designated individual at
the issuing headquarters.
The FSO or the designated individual makes an entry in the register as
to the date. He also makes entries that reflect the amount of the cash
turn-in for food costs and surcharges.
Then he initials the register to verify the entries.
The officer to whom the book has been issued or to whom it has been transferred
accomplishes the turn-in of the DD Form 1544 book. He does so using the
Transfer Control and Receipts No. 2 and No. 3, as appropriate. When he
completes the turn-in of the book, the retained transfer control and receipts are
filed and disposed of according to the MARKS.
