PROCESSING THE REQUEST
At the ASP, the DA Form 581 is reviewed for proper authentication of Block 13c and Block 14c. To do this, each
ASP keeps on file the DA Form 1687 submitted by individual using units that lists those individuals authorized to
request or receive ammunition from that ASP (authorized to sign Block 13c). The ASP also has a copy of the DA
Form 1687 from the using unit that lists personnel authorized to sign Block 14c of the DA Form 581.
At the ASP, the DA Form 581 is edited to ensure that it is properly prepared. Special attention is given to Blocks
16, 17, and 18 to ensure that the unit has properly identified the type of ammunition required. The ASP now
determines if the issue is routine or immediate.
Routine issues request that ammunition be picked up on a specific RDD. This date is normally entered in Block 9
of the DA Form 581. Most peacetime issues are routine and normally involve two actions. The first action
establishes a due-out for the requested stocks. To accomplish this, the ASP logs the document in on DA Form
2064 (Document Register for Supply Actions), assigns an ASP voucher number, and posts the request to the
