loan items to member of another unit unless approval is obtained from the owning PBO. If

6. Inventory List Procedures. Inventory List procedures are used when the PBO or responsible
officer finds that it is impractical to further assign responsibility for property to another person.
(i.e. Shift operations, multi-use classroom, or large support equipment). When inventory lists
are used, the following procedures apply:
a. Prepare a DA Form 2062 in two copies, as an inventory list. The responsibile officer
keeps the original copy. Copy two is kept in the area where the property is located and placed
where it can be easily seen.
b. Mark the property so that a person unfamiliar with it can easily identify it.
c. The responsible officer will include in the unit SOP instructions for people working in the
room or area where the property is located, instruction for reporting property moved from one
location to another and any restrictions the responsible officer wants to include.
d. Inventory the property at least semi-annually. This inventory will be made by the
responsible officer. After the inventory, enter the inventory quantity in the next unused quantity
column of DA Form 2062.
7. Authorization to Receipt for Equipment (DA Form 1687). DA Form 1687 is used when an
accountable person wants to designate personnel as an authorized representative to request
and/receive supplies requiring accountability at the user level. Only the responsible/accountable
officer or persons authorized will sign for property. Authorized representatives are required to
have valid identification. Keep DA Form 1687 current.
