Summary: This regulation prescribes uniform procedures, codes, formats, forms, and time standards for the interchange of logistics information in the Army supply system. The procedures govern the interchange of information between the supported activities and supply control distribution systems of the Department of Defense (DOD) and other participating agencies. This regulation is the Army's implementation of six DOD military standard systems: Military Standard Requisitioning and Issue Procedures (MILSTRIP), Military Standard Transaction Reporting and Accounting Procedures (MILSTRAP), Military Supply and Transportation Evaluation Procedures (MILSTEP), Defense Automatic Addressing System (DAAS),Uniform Materiel Movement and Issue Priority System (UMMIPS), the DOD Activity Address Directory (DODAAD); one DODD: Control of Access to DOD Materiel Inventories Required by Defense Contracts (GFM); and extracts from the Military Assistance Program Address Directory (MAPAD). MILSTRIP is implemented in chapters 3 , 4 , 7 , 8 , 11 , 12 , and 16 ; MILSTRAP in chapters 5 , 10 , and 15 ; MILSTEP in chapter 13 ; DAAS in chapter 14 ; UMMIPS in chapter 2 ; DODAAD in chapter 9 ; GFM in chapter 16 ; and MAPAD in chapter 11 .
