FOLLOWING THROUGH ON REQUISITIONS FOR REPAIR PARTS AND SUPPLIES
After requisitioning repair parts and supplies, there are a variety of follow-up
activities you could perform. This lesson covers requesting a supply status, posting status
cards received, requesting cancellation of supplies, receiving and issuing repair parts, and
packing medical and dental equipment for movement.
Supply status is a notice of a supply decision, on a specific supply request, made
by the supplier. You receive supply status from the SSA on status cards and/or listings.
Supply status is in the form of status codes. Supply sources use these codes to pass data
about requisitions to the requesters. Refer to Extract 2, Table C-1, pages Extract 2-4
through 2-6, for a listing of status/rejection codes.
