1 – 6. EXPLANATION OF TERMS. Outlined in the glossary is a listing of a selection of terms and
definitions used in this SOP. Additional clarification of terminology is contained in AR 310-25, Dictionary of
United States Army Terms and in referenced Army regulations.

1 – 7.   SUPPLY OPERATIONS.


        a. Accountability and Control of Property. Management of all organizational property (MTOE,
TDA, and Supplement) is achieved through the operation of an automated installation property book (PBUSE)
and extensive hand receipting to the lowest level practical. Supervisory and personal responsibility is conferred
by signature on hand receipts, clothing record or other authorized supply documentation. Inherent in
assignment to a command or supervisory position is the conveyance of responsibility of all property used by,
under control, or otherwise associated with an activity with or without signature.

          b. Constraints on Supply. Activities/units are expected to have on hand or on order sufficient
supplies and equipment to support the assigned training or support mission. In this regard, the determination
and justification of requirements is a user responsibility. Materiel will not be requested unless MTOE, TDA, or
other appropriate authorization exists. Commanders will report to higher command when they are constrained
for any reason from submitting requisitions for items in supply class 2, 3 (packaged), 4, 7, 8, and 9 (Reference
Chapter 1-9, AR 710-2).

         c. Command Supply Discipline Program (CSDP). Parent level commanders are responsible for
enforcing CSDP in their respective organizations. Detailed information concerning CSDP is contained in
Appendix B, AR 710-2 and, AR 735-5.

          d. Unauthorized Commitments. Authority to contract is not an element of the funding authority
provided by Resource Management Office (RMO) in the Annual Operating Budget (AOB); Authority to
contract must be given specifically. Only Contracting Officers and their duly authorized representatives, acting
within the scope of their authority, may conduct negotiations and commit the Government to procurement from
sources outside the Government. Unauthorized personnel must refrain from making any commitments or
promises relating to award of contracts, and should make no representation that could be construed as a
commitment. Under no circumstances should Army personnel advise a business representative that an attempt
would be made to influence another person or agency to give preferential treatment to any concern in the award
of contracts. Personnel not authorized procurement actions are urged to give serious consideration to the
possible consequences of taking actions that may be construed as circumventing regulatory requirements. Not
the least of these consequences is the possibility that the individual responsible for committing the Government
without proper authority be held financially liable.

               CHAPTER 2 - REQUESTING SUPPLIES, EQUIPMENT AND SERVICES

2 – 1.   ORGANIZATION FOR SUPPORT.

         a. The S-4 Section is the focal point for all logistical requirements for tenant Units and the IPBO is for
USAG Bamberg organizations. All requests for equipment, supplies, and services must be processed through
the S-4 prior to forwarding to the Budget Office or to the PBO. Any request that is received by the PBO
without the appropriate S-4 “stamp” will be returned to the originator without action. All requests originating
from units or sections of the USAG-Bamberg will be approved by the Garrison Resource Management Office.

       b. The installation property book office maintains both the nonexpendable and expendable/durable
document registers for tenant units and USAG-Bamberg. Tenant units maintain their own expendable/durable



                                                      6

document register utilizing the ULLS-S4 system. All mission nonexpendable related requests will be forwarded
(after funding by RMO, Budget Office) to this office for processing. Also, the installation property book office
maintains the shortage annexes (except expendable and durable items).

       c. The Regional Supply Support Activity (RSSA) in Kaiserslautern is the supporting SSA for USAG
Bamberg Garrison and supporting Units.

2 – 2. USE OF THE GOVERNMENT PURCHASE CARD, (GPC).

        a. The GPC card is used for the purchase of one-time, non-repetitive, over-the-counter, Internet or
telephone purchases for supplies and services (under $2,500) which are immediately available.

         b. A single delivery and payment will be made.

      c. All GPC purchases shall be in accordance with the GPC - Army SOP and GPC - USAG Bamberg
DOL Funding and Approval Process.

         d. The GPC Card shall be used for official US Government purchases only.

        e. Purchase request documents have to be signed by the Approving official prior to purchase.
Purchase of all class II, IV and VII items has to be approved by the PBO, lease of vehicles has to be approved
by the TMP.

         f. Restrictions and Limitations. GPC cards shall not be used for the following supplies/services:

            The card may not be used for the following:
            (1) Cash advances (not permitted under any circumstances)
            (2) Rental or lease of land or buildings
            (3) Purchases of telecommunications (telephone) services

           Purchases of ADP hardware and software must be made in accordance with AR 25-1 and AE
supplement 1 to AR 25-1. Items requiring IMARS must show proof of the IMAR.

            Purchases of travel or subsistence are not authorized. This includes rental or lease of vehicles,
meals, drinks, lodging, or airline, bus, train or other travel related purchases. In the case of conferences,
workshops or training, GPC may be used for the conference facility once proper approvals are obtained.
However, the costs must not include meals, drinks, or lodging.

CHAPTER 3 - TURN-IN OF SUPPLIES

3 – 1. When property is turned in. Supplies will be turned in when they:

        (a) Are excess to authorized allowances; or

        (b) Are not needed and the authorization is not mandatory; or

        (c) Become unserviceable or uneconomically repairable; or

        (d) Are “Found on Installation”.

3 – 2. Where property is turned in. Under normal circumstances, supplies will be turned in through the

IMEU-BAM-LGS
SUBJECT: Bamberg Installation Property Book Office SOP

3 – 3. Turn-in procedures.

        (a) Turn-in of installation property book items: Serviceable installation property book items may be
turned in only when directed by the Bn Cdr, Bn XO, Bn S-4, or the PBO. Caution must be utilized to ensure that
authorized items are not mistakenly turned-in. TDA or MTOE items may be turned in once the TDA/MTOE
eliminating them is approved or upon directive from MACOM. Once approved the commander may direct the
turn-in of excess items 365 days before the effective date of the approved TDA/MTOE. A statement will be
signed by the commander advising the PBO that the item is no longer needed to accomplish the unit’s mission.
Generally, most equipment needs classification prior to turn-in to the RSSA. Check the Maintenance
Allocation Chart (MAC) in the appropriate TM for level of maintenance authorized to classify the equipment.

        1. Check the Department of the Army Automatic Disposal List (ADL) for items with no classification
for turn-in required. Items on the ADL will be turned in “as is” complete with COEI/BII.

           2. Prior to turn-in, ensure the equipment is:

              (a)   Clean

              (b)   Tagged with pertinent information, i.e.: NSN, Nomenclature, Unit, etc.

          (c) Organizational maintenance is performed and appropriate forms completed, i.e.: DA Form
2404, DA Form 2407, etc.

              (d)   Ensure shortage annexes accompany the turn-in if shortage exists.

         3. Equipment needing TI for turn-in will be turned in to the appropriate maintenance facility for
classification. (Contact the Installation Property Book Office before beginning turn-in procedures)

           (a) Computer equipment will be classified by the Garrison (AMO) Automation Management
Office. It will classify all computers belonging to USAG-Bamberg and tenant units receiving automation
support from the Garrison AMO. Units coming under the control of 54th ENG BDE, 173rd ABCT and 16th SUS
BDE will have the classification accomplished by their system administrator (SA)

        4. Weapons and certain CCIs. These items are turned in directly to the Security Branch, RSAK by the
units, due to security reasons. USAG Bamberg IPBO employs LNs are prohibited by Army Regulations from
handling highly sensitive equipment.

              (a) MAV, classifies weapons. Units are responsible for getting their own equipment classified for
turn-in.

              (b) Units will coordinate turn-in appointments directly with the RSAK.

           (c) Units must obtain a signature card and a turn-in document number from the installation property
book office not later than one (1) work day prior to the turn-in appointment.

                             CHAPTER 6 - PROPERTY ACCOUNTABILITY

All property that requires installation property book accounting is listed in Chapter 5, this SOP and paragraph 2-
5, AR 710-2.

6 – 1. NONEXPENDABLE SUPPLIES
Generally, nonexpendable supplies require formal installation property book accounting. These supplies must
be accounted for on hand receipts all through their life span. Nonexpendable components will not be listed on
the installation property book. However, they will be listed and accounted for using the component hand
receipt or shortage annex.

6 – 2. EXPENDABLE SUPPLIES (except hand tools) require no formal accounting after issue to the user
level. However, supervisors will ensure expendables are not subjected to waste and abuse.

         (a)      Unit supply personnel will maintain a “ledger” to record issues of expendable supplies.

         (b)       All tools regardless of the Accounting Requirement Code (ARC) will be controlled and
responsibility assigned by using hand receipt, component hand receipts, tool room or tool crib procedures (para
7-5, AR 735-5/DA Pam 710-2-1, para 6-3.

         (c)      Expendable consumables require no formal accounting after issue to the user level. PHRHs
 will ensure consumed components of SKOs are placed on order.

SUBJECT: Bamberg Installation Property Book Office SOP

        (d)       Expendable hand tools require no formal accounting after issue to the user level, but require
hand receipt control. Shortages will be documented for IAW AR 710-2 and AR 735-5.

6 – 3. DURABLE SUPPLIES, including hand tools require no formal accounting after issue to the user level,
but require hand receipt control. Commander or head of the activity will monitor durable items and prepare
annual management review of durable items to determine whether there are any missing items and to ensure
there is no fraud, waste or abuse. Results of the management review will be documented in duplicate, stating
findings and any corrective actions, if any are needed. One copy will be provided to the next level of command,
and will be saved on file in the activity for two (2) years before being destroyed. Shortages will be documented
for IAW AR 710-2and AR 735-5.

6 – 4. SUPERVISORY RESPONSIBILITY for the care, use, and safekeeping of Government property
issued to or used by subordinates is inherent in supervisory positions.

                         CHAPTER 7 - ASSIGNING RESPONSIBILITY FOR PROPERTY

This chapter provides guidance for assigning responsibility for property.

7 - 1. REQUIRED RECORDS. The following records are used to assign responsibility for property.

           a.       The installation property book.

                    2.    Hand receipts, subhand receipts, and component hand receipts.

                    3.    Temporary hand receipts.

                    4.    Equipment receipts.

7 – 2. HAND RECEIPT PROCEDURES. Hand receipts are required whenever installation property book,
durable supplies, or hand tools are issued. Hand receipts at the installation property book level (referred to as
primary hand receipt) will be updated semi-annually for PBUSE customers, regardless if there is a “change
document” or not. The hand receipt procedures in this command are as follows:

       a.      The PBO will hand receipt property to the PHRHs using PBUSE output, Hand Receipts. The
PBO will document COEI/BII nonexpendable shortages using DA Form 2062 (Shortage Annex).

         b.       Section supervisors (if used by the PHRH) will subhand receipt their property to the “user”.
This will ensure a direct responsibility for the equipment.

           c.   The PHRH will ensure his/her property is accounted for at all times.

           d.       Hand receipts, subhand receipts, and component hand receipts will be prepared IAW DA Pam
710-2-1.

                    (1)       The issuer keeps the original copy.

                    (2)       The receiver keeps the duplicate copy.

7 – 3. HAND RECEIPT ANNEX PROCEDURES. This is commonly known as “shortage annex”. When
an end item that has components/BII is issued, any shortage (less consumable) must be recorded on a shortage
annex.

           a.   The PBO will provide shortage annex to the PHRH under the following circumstances:

                   (1)     When a shortage is discovered when an item is received from the RSSA and the item
is issued to the PHRH for the first time.

 PBO.

                 (4)       When other type of relief from responsibility document is presented to the PBO (See
para 12-1, AR 735-5).

       b.       The PHRH documents all component shortages less expendable consumable to the “user” on
a component hand receipt, and is responsible for ordering these items.

                 (1)       Class II, IV, and VII shortages will be ordered through the PBO.

                 (2)       When all shortages listed on the shortage annex are filled; remove from the file and
destroy.

7 – 4. COMPONENT LISTING CHANGES. PHRHs will ensure component hand receipts are updated with
the most current publications. “New” items will be placed on order and “deleted” items will be turned in.

7 – 5. TEMPORARY HAND RECEIPT PROCEDURES. This will be used only for equipment loaned for
up to thirty (30) calendar days.

         a.       PHRHs are prohibited from temporary hand receipting their equipment to any element outside
their organizations, without the approval of their parent level commander. Prepare a DA Form 3161 IAW DA
Pam 710-2-1.

                           a.      Notify the hand receipt holder and arrange for the return of the equipment
NLT the expiration date.

                           b.      If the equipment is still needed, issue it using hand receipt procedures.

7 – 6. HAND RECEIPT UPDATES.

         a.       Primary hand receipts will be updated every six months, regardless if there are change
 documents or not. A monthly update is an option. The IPBO will ensure all change documents (if any) are
 posted prior to printing the hand receipts.

                  (1)      The PHRH will update his hand receipts within two work days of the receipt of the
printouts. All copies will be signed and the original copy will be returned to the IPBO. No manual entries,
markings, etc. are authorized on the original copy. Any discrepancy will be brought to the attention of the
IPBO immediately.

                   (2)      The PHRH will retain a “file copy” and a “work copy” of his/her hand receipts. The
file copy will be a copy of the last signed hand receipt with no other manual corrections/entries.

                  (3)      The work copy will be updated whenever a change occurs that affects the hand
receipt. Transactions Affecting the Installation property book Balance will be posted to the work copy. This
posting/updating is required only if the PHRH does not update his/her hand receipts monthly.

                  CHAPTER 9 - RELIEF FROM RESPONSIBILITY FOR PROPERTY

9 - 1 PROPERTY LOSS

         Soldiers and Department of the Army civilian employees may have to pay for Army property they lose
or damage. Under AR 735-5, financial liability ordinarily will not exceed one month's base pay. In certain
cases, however, such as the loss of personal arms or equipment, or damage to Government housing, liability
may equal the full amount of the loss. The Financial Liability Investigation of Property Loss is the
administrative tool used by the Army to establish liability.

9 - 2 GENERAL ACTIONS TO PROTECT GOVERNMENT PROPERTY

         Administrative actions are available to Commanders to ensure enforcement of property accountability
when property becomes lost, damaged or destroyed. These methods are designed to protect the right of the US
Government to obtain reimbursement for the lost, damage or destruction of property caused by negligence or
misconduct. Some of these methods are listed below. The methods are material accounting oriented; are not
appropriate or intended to be used as corrective action or punishment for negligence or willful misconduct; do
not constitute a punishment and do not preclude use of adverse administrative or disciplinary actions. AR 735-5
specifies reporting requirements for personnel responsible for Government property and those actions required
by the Commander, Primary Hand Receipt Holder (PHRH) or Accountable Officer (AO). Regardless of the
methods used to account for lost, damaged or destroyed Government Property, the ownership of the property
remains with the US Government.

    a)   DD Form 362, Statement of Charges/Cash Collection Voucher.

    b) DD Form 200, Financial Liability Investigation of Property Loss.

    c)   DA Form 7531, Checklist and Tracking Document for Financial Liability Investigation of Property
Loss.

    d) DA 4949, Administrative Adjustment Report.

9 – 3 STATEMENT OF CHARGES VERSUS FINANCIAL LIABILITY INVESTIGATION OF
PROPERTY LOSS:

         A Financial Liability Investigation of Property Loss is not required in every situation where there is a
loss or damage. If the loss is less than one month's base pay, the command may ask the responsible individual to
sign a DD Form 362, Statement of Charges/Cash Collection Voucher. This is essentially an admission of


                                                     20
IMEU-BAM-LGS
SUBJECT: Bamberg Installation Property Book Office SOP

liability for the lost or damaged property and an agreement to pay for it. The command cannot force or coerce
someone to sign the statement; it must be voluntary. A FLIPL is used in situations where responsibility for the
loss is in question, or where the amount to be charged is in dispute.

         1. DD Form 362, Statement of Charges/Cash Collection Voucher

The DD Form 362 will be used when the individual admits liability; offers cash payment or payroll deduction;
the charge does not exceed the monthly basic pay of the individual being charged and there is not a mandatory
requirement for either a FLIPL or AR 15-6 Investigation (AR 735-5, para. 13-3 and 13-25). AR 735-5 provides
specific instructions for completing this form.

         2. DD Form 200, Financial Liability Investigation of Property Loss (FLIPL)

Financial Liability Investigation of Property Loss documents the circumstances concerning the loss, damage or
destruction of Government Property and serves as, or supports a voucher for adjusting property from
accountable records. Additionally it documents an assessment of financial liability against an individual or
provides for relief from financial liability.

a.       Normally the PHRH or the AO will initiate a FLIPL. However when the PHRH or AO is not
available, the person with the most knowledge of the incident will serve as the initiator. Questions such as who,
what, when, where and how should be addressed, if known.

 b.      FLIPLs are processed through the chain of command of the individual responsible for the property at
the time of loss, damage or destruction if the individual is subject to AR 735-5. A person initiating a FLIPL
should obtain a document number from the PBO before sending it to the appointing authority or assigning a
survey officer.

           (1) Prepare separate FLIPL for Nonexpendable and Expendable/Durable items. Items that are not
listed on property records will be assigned an Expendable/Durable document number

c.        Mandatory reasons for initiation of a FLIPL are listed in AR 735-5. The most common reasons are
listed below.

            i.   Suspected negligence or willful misconduct and the individual does not admit liability or offer
to make voluntary reimbursement to the Government for the full value of the loss, damage or destruction, less
depreciation.

            ii.   The value of the loss, damage or destruction exceeds the individual's monthly base pay.

           iii.   The loss, damage or destruction involves a sensitive item.

          iv.   The loss or damage involves a GSA vehicle and the proper administrative actions (paragraph
12-1c, AR 735-5) have not been taken.

            v.    Required by higher authority or other DA regulation.

d.       The appropriate reviewing Lead Supply Technician will review the DD Form 200 for accuracy of
reported data and completeness. Incomplete documents or those requiring corrections will be returned to the
PHRH without action.

e.        Recovered property. Accountability for recovered property previously listed on a FLIPL will be
accomplished IAW AR 735-5, DA Pamphlet 710-2-1. If property is recovered before assignment of a financial
liability officer, the responsible officer or initiator will prepare and sign a recovered property statement. If
financial liability officer is assigned, the financial liability officer will prepare and sign the recovered property
statement.

SUBJECT: Bamberg Installation Property Book Office SOP


         3. DA Form 7531, Checklist and Tracking Document for FLIPL

When it becomes known that there will be a requirement to prepare a DD Form 200 to investigate the loss of
Government property, a Checklist and Tracking Document for Financial Liability Investigations of Property
Loss will be prepared with elements in part A completed as events occur. When the DD Form 200 is prepared it
will be attached to DA Form 7531 that will be used as a checklist and for tracking events as they occur.

Based upon the commander or PHRH’s decision, the supply sergeant/representative will ensure applicable
forms and adjustment documents are prepared.

         a.       Statements of Charges/Cash Collection Vouchers will be completed within five working days.

         b.       FLIPL processing time segments with/without Appointing Authority:

                  (1)      Initiation process:

                           a.        End of initiation process – 15 days.

                  (2)      Investigation and Recommendation Process:

                           b.        Accumulative Days – 55 days.

                  (3)      Adjudication Process:

                           a.        End of adjudication process – 20 days.
                           b.        Accumulative Days – 75 days.

                  (4)      Notify Individual being charged – 30 days.

                  (5)      Provide to S-4 for submission for collection – 1 day.

        e.       Change of Serial/USA Numbers. AAR will be used under the following circumstances
only-

                (1)     When a serial/USA numbered item is replaced or swapped out for the exact LIN and
NSN while in maintenance. Attach a copy of the DA Form 2407, or the contract items, a copy of the contractor
receipt.

                  (2)      When an obvious mistake is discovered during a review of the hand receipts or
during a physical inventory of property. The following are obvious mistakes

                         -         Transposing numbers or errors in one or two digits of a number are
considered obvious mistakes.

                         -      Miscopying a number from the issue document is also considered an
obvious mistake. Note: If you can locate the original issue document containing the correct serial/USA
number, you do not need an AAR.

                          -    Prepare the DA Form 4949 IAW Para 4-20, DA Pam 710-2-1.
                          -
                          -    Enter the Following information:

                                      Authority block: “Para 4-12 b (2), DA Pam 710-2-1”.

                               Reason block: Change “CHANGE STOCK NO” to read
“CHANGE SERIAL or USA NUMBER”, whichever is applicable.

                                         Reverse side: Enter a brief explanation on why the serial/USA
number change is necessary. The responsible officer (not supply sergeant/clerk) will sign below the statement.

        f.       Disassembly of end items. Follow procedures in Paragraph 4-25, DA Pam 710-2-1.

When a serial/USA number discrepancy is discovered and the receipt is available, the adjustment will be made
using the issue receipt. Therefore, a DA Form 4949 is not required.

Serial numbers of weapons cannot be changed by an AAR. A FLIPL must be initiated IAW AR 735-5.
