TASK This lesson is based on the following task from STP 9-55B34-SM-TG: 093-400-4119,
Prepare Storage Space Management Report (DD Form 805).
OBJECTIVE When you have completed this lesson, you should be able to prepare a DD Form 805
(Storage Space Management Report).
CONDITION You will have this subcourse book and will work without supervision.
STANDARDS You must score at least 75 on the end-of-subcourse examination that covers this lesson and
Lessons 1 through 4 (answer 23 of the 30 questions correctly).
The efficient use of assigned storage space at an installation is the responsibility of the installation
commander. The Department of Defense (DOD) requires that installation commanders report, through channels,
utilization of assigned storage space on DD Form 805 (Storage Space Management Report).
This report provides a basis for management of storage space for purposes of allocation, assignment, and
control through evaluation of installation, utilization, and occupancy performance and provides background
information on which to base responses to inquiries from higher headquarters. The report is also used to
determine the requirement for and location of new storage facilities.
All installations listed in Table 6-1 of AR 740-1 (Figure 5-1) are required to report all storage space at their
installations. Even though the installation may not be listed in AR 740-1, all installations with 50,000 gross square
feet (GSF) or more of storage space are also required to report the storage space at their installation.
At the discretion of the Department of the Army (DA), installations with less than 50,000 GSF of covered
storage space may also be required to report storage, should the installation be considered of significant
importance by reason of mission assignment, location, or activity.
Storage space used for the following purposes is excluded from reporting.
Bench and back-up stocks in shops.
Transit sheds and open areas at terminals used for cargo throughput operations.
All reports are prepared either annually (A) or semiannually (L) as indicated in the column titled Report in
Table 6-1 of AR 740-1 (see Figure 5-1). Annual reports are prepared as of 30 June. Semiannual reports are
prepared as of 30 June and 31 December.
