j. Forward Stockage Points. For class 9 supply in the division, stockage in class 9
common forward stockage points (FSP) is restricted to 3 DOS OL, 2 DOS SL, and 5 DOS OST
[except when the Major Army Command (MACOM) modifies the OST parameter to show actual
OST between the forward and the main direct support unit (DSU)]. Use Extract 1, Table
G-21, page Extract 1-9, to determine FSP stockage.
ISSUE PRIORITY SYSTEM
The UMMIPS provides the means for expressing the importance of a supply
request. This is done by assigning a 2-digit numeric code, ranging from 01 through 15, to
the supply request. This numeric code is the PD of the supply request. The PD is based
on two factors, the unit's Force/Activity Designator (FAD) and the Urgency of the Need
Designator (UND) of the supply request.
a. Force/Activity Designator. Force/Activity Designators are expressed by Roman
numerals I, II, III, IV, and V. The permanent orders activating the unit usually include the
assigned FAD. An unit has only one FAD.
b. Urgency of Need Designator Determination. The using unit personnel
determine the UND. The UND is used to express how urgently the unit needs the
requested supplies. Force/Activity Designators are identified by letters A, B, and C.
Select UNDs using the following guidelines.
(1) Urgency of the Need Designator A. Used to request materiel meeting one or
more of the following criteria.
(a) Required for immediate end-use and without which the force or
activity is unable to perform assigned operational missions, or such condition will occur
within 15 days in the CONUS and 20 days overseas.
(b) Required for immediate installation on or repair of mission-essential
materiel. Without this materiel, the unit or activity is unable to perform assigned missions.
(c) Required for immediate use for installation on or repair of direct
support equipment (for example, ground support, fire fighting) needed for the operation of
(d) Required for immediate use to replacement or repair of mission-
essential training materiel. Without this materiel, the unit or activity is unable to perform its
assigned training missions.
(e) Required for immediate use in replacement or repair of essential
physical facilities of an industrial or production activity. Without these supplies, the activity
is unable to perform assigned missions.
