SUBJECT: Approved DLMS Change 80, Revision to DLMS Supplement (DS) 870M,
Material Returns Supply Status, for Inclusion of the Unit Price (Supply)
This revision to the DOD 4000.25-M, Defense Logistics Management System (DLMS),
modifying the DS 870M, is required to support continued logistics operations in the
DLSS/DLMS environment. The updated DLMS Supplement will be posted to the DLMSO
web site (http://www.dla.miI/i-6/dlmso/ICsiDefault.htm) within 30 days from the above date for
implementation planning. The attached change to DLMS will bc incorporated into the DLMS
manual/supplements/maps, based upon the effective or availability date to be determined.
DLMSO will concurrently pursue coordination/approval with the DOD Logistics Functional
Working Group, the DOD Electronic Data interchange Standards Management Committee
(EDISMC), and the Federal ED1 Standards Management Coordinating Committee (FESMCC)
for Federal implementation conventions (IC) revisions.
Addressees may direct questions to the DLMSO points of contact, Ms. Ellen Hilert,

3. REQUESTED CHANGE:
a. Title: Revision to DS 870M, Material Returns Supply Status for Inclusion of Unit Price
b. Description of Change: This change allows the reply to the customer asset report
(DLSS DI Code FTR) to provide the unit price of the materiel identified. This data element was
originally streamlined out of the DLMS, but is now reinstated for use in a mixed DLSS/DLMS
environment. Although not a mandatory entry in the current DLSS, this information is expected
by the customer. In addition, this change provides numerous administrative corrections,
clarifications, and updates to make this DS consistent with other more recently updated DLMS
c. Procedures: Revise DS 870M, Material Returns Supply Status as follows:
