    Description:
     
    System lacks address options when generating a DD Forms1149, Requisition and Invoice/Shipping Document through Property Accountability (PA).  The form populates the "From" block using the assigned UIC's APO address.  In many circumstances, the item (i.e., vehicle) shipment location is not collocated with UIC's APO location.  The address issue results with the Transportation Office rejecting the shipment request because "From" block does not accurately reflect physical location of shipment.  Allowing DPAS users the ability to edit the "From" field generating the DD Form 1149 streamlines process, eliminates errors and provides accurate shipping documents.
     
    Recommended:
     
    Request DPAS add an editable "From" field to the Generate Forms > DD Form 1149 function similar to the "Ship To - Mark For" field.  Providing a space for users to manually enter the address and/or use the address browse function to populate Section 1 of the DD1149. Recommend linking the address browse function to addresses loaded under the UIC's Master Data within PA and Maintenance & Utilization (M&U) modules.  A dropdown menu allowing users to narrow Address Type search (i.e., EP-Equipment Pool, MO-Maintenance Officer, AO-Actbl Prop Officer, or 02-DODAAC TAC(2) used for FREIGHT).
     
    The desired end result is the user generating a DD Form 1149 with their preferred "From" address vs. the system populating Section 1 with the UIC's APO address.
     
    Mission Critical:
     
    Critical.  Accurate shipping documents ensure warfighters receive critical items when and where necessary to execute mission.  Streamlining DPAS prevents erroneous shipment actions due to incorrect ship "From" location.  
     
    Benefits:
     
    Incorrect shipment documentation drives additional shipping costs, delays/cancels shipment and increases mission failure rates.  Adding address edit/selection function eliminates shortfalls and results in warfighter mission success.

    This will affect all DPAS users.
