Source Identification ad Ordering Authorization.
The SIOATH is a supply document initiated and controlled by the DER/DESC-O. It identifies the supply sources
(refineries and DESPs), contract quantitative limitations, fund data, and authorizes DERs or military bases to
order/requisition petroleum. DERs may not exceed the quantitative limit set in the DPA or FFCRL. Units may
not exceed ordering amounts listed in the SIOATH.
a. Preparing SIOATHs.
(1) SIOATHs with refineries as the direct source of supply to DESPs are generated by DFAMs.
DERs may amend the SIOATH if necessary.
(2) SIOATHs that have intermediate DESPs as supply sources for base level DESPs are prepared by
DERs IAW provision set by the DESC-O.
(3) SIOATHs are not prepared for overseas DESPs. JPOs and SAPOs notify customers of DESP and
(4) SIOATHs arrive at military base DESPs five working days before to the new ordering period or
in time to meet the minimum advance notice of the contact
(5) SIOATHs will show the quantity of fuel to be imported.
b. Special SIOATHs.
(1) Urgent requirements. DERs may provide SIOATHs which allow bases to order fuel before the
ordering period of new contracts.
(2) Nonappropriated units. SIOATHs cannot designate such nonappropriated units as the ordering or
receiving location. The sponsoring military service will requisition petroleum for them.
