20 Ammo Distribution and Movement Ref. ANA Decree1-4.5
21 Ammunition Distribution Terminal learning Objective 2:The student will understand the concept of support and theflow of ammunition and explosives within the ANAEnabling Learning Objective: 1 - 3Understand how the MoD will provide ammunition andexplosives to the field soldier.
22 Ammunition Distribution (con’t) Concept of Support – Distribution is to:Fixed regional /corps ammunition depots for furtherdistribution to the user for unit consumption.Directly to assigned brigade logistics battalion transfer depot for operations and combat support. The battalion supply company then releases ammunition to the using unit.
23 Ammunition Distribution (con’t) Depots: Normal, peacetime operation of ammunition and explosives distribution system requires unit basic loads and forward positioning of stocks to meet the initial war time requirements of units assigned in the area until routine resupply is established from the national level.
24 Ammunition Distribution (con’t) Ammunition depots push munitions forward on the battlefield.The corps ammunition depot maintains stocks of ammunition forecasted for training support, as well as unit basic loads approved by the General Staff for unit consumption until normal distribution is available to sustain combat operations.
25 Ammunition Distribution (con’t) The munitions distribution system includes all supply activities needed to provide munitions to the supported units.Munitions requirements from combat battalions and brigadesproceed through the materiel management channels of thecorps until they reach the national ammunition depot.
26 Ammunition Distribution (con’t) The national ammunition depot, corps ammunition depots, and ammunition transfer depots constitute the ammunition distribution system.
27 Ammunition Distribution (con’t) The ATD is a distribution point for ammunition for brigade units and a collection point for retrograde ammunition, captured enemy ammunition, excess ammunition, and packing and preservation materiel.
28 Ammunition Distribution (con’t) Object of the munitions distribution system is to provide munitions at the right time, place, and quantity to ensure the success of an operation. Munitions planning and operations must be versatile.The objective is supporting as far forward as possible

138 Forecasting and Budgeting Ref. ANA Decree1-4.5
139 Forecasting and Budgeting The Ammunition Program Manager is the only agency authorized to commit the Ministry of Defense to allocate funds for ammunition procurement and acquisitionForecasting:Forecasting is the consolidation of projected requirementsfrom each of the tactical unitsAnnually the General Staff will provide the APM a forecastof needs for the following yearThese needs are categorized into training, war reserve,operational, and contingency requirements.Timing of requirements determination and validation must belinked to anticipated budget preparation and integrationdata calls.
140 Forecasting and Budgeting Requirements:Training, Operational, and War Reserve Ammunition requirements will be as determined by the GS G-3 in support of plans and unit proficiency levels
141 Forecasting and Budgeting Training requirements are defined as the ammunition needed to sustain proficiency and combat skills necessary to employ assigned weapons and systems.Training Requirements:Individual training is to either learn a new skill or enhancean existing one.Collective training integrates individuals into cohesive teamsTraining requirements must be planned and included inthe forecast
142 Forecasting and Budgeting Requirements are determined by examining the required training scheduled for the coming year and calculating the amount and type of ammunition needed.Training requirements are generated at the kandak level.Each higher level up to the General Staff reviews andconsolidates the requirements
143 Forecasting and Budgeting Included at the GS level are the requirements of the schools which are consolidated at the Kabul Military Training Center (KMTC).The General Staff consolidates and validates individual and collective forecasts and then forwards phased requirements by type of ammunition and formation to the APM for integration, planning, programming, and budgeting.
144 Forecasting and Budgeting Operational Requirements:Ammunition which will be consumed by members of tacticalformations in the course of executing their assigned missions- battle.Forecasted amount and type of ammunition can be calculated based on historical usage rates for previously conducted operations of a similar nature and adjusted for any differences.That forecast is generated by each Corps and approved by the General Staff Chief of Operations.
145 Forecasting and Budgeting Contingency:Contingency ammunition is that ammunition needed to coverpotential situations that may occur during the coming year.It is based upon the calculation of the amount and type of ammunition needed to successfully overcome the most probable threat, the likelihood of that threat occurring, and the consequences of not having sufficient ammunition.The determination of the amount and type of ammunition needed for contingency stocks is made by the General Staff Chief of Operations and approved by MoD S & P.
146 Forecasting and Budgeting War Reserve:Ammunition calculated to support developed war andsupporting campaign plans.Forecast is a combined effort lead by the AMoD S & P supported by the AMoD, ATL, APM, General Staff Chief of Operations and Chief of Logistics.
147 Forecasting and Budgeting These forecasts are calculations of amounts and types of ammunition required to reduce the impact of accelerated consumptionThe intent is to define the amount of ammunition to maintain in inventory that prevents depleting inventory stores before manufacturing deliveries can match demand
148 Forecasting and Budgeting It reduces the risk of disruption of ammunition deliveries and the results must be part of an annual program decision brief for the Defense Council (DC).
149 Forecasting and Budgeting Terminal Learning Objective:Understand the budgeting process, cost, source, and contractexecution for ANA ammunition.Enabling Learning Objectives:Understand requirement development and the budgetprocess for procurement.Understand how the contract process for ammunition isexecuted and managed.Understand from where ammunition is obtained.
150 Forecasting and Budgeting Budgeting consists of those steps necessary to convert therequirements for ammunition into the cost to procure.Requirements are consolidated and compared to the totalstocks of serviceable ammunition on hand.The difference between the two is the net requirementconsidered in the budgeting process.
151 Forecasting and Budgeting Procurement lead time to obtain the ammunition must beconsidered.The net requirement represents that ammunition whichneeds to be procuredThe adjusted net requirement is the total ammunition requiredto ensure ammunition on hand is not unacceptably reducedbefore replacement stocks arrive
152 Forecasting and Budgeting Source of Ammunition:The first priority is to identify any ammunition that can berenovated to a serviceable condition.The next step is to determine the best source of supply.AMoD ATL coordinating with AMoD S & P provides guidancein selecting a source(s) of supply that match and supportoverall strategy of reliability, quality, and delivery.
153 Forecasting and Budgeting Cost Determination: Combining all requirements and using the least expensivesource available for each type of ammunition providesthe total acquisition cost.APM determines the estimated cost of acquisition andprovides it to the AMoD
154 Forecasting and Budgeting ATL, and the General Staff for the cost of the ammunitionforecastedWith this information, the General Staff will include the costassociated with a desired capability (e.g. training, operationalor contingency) in the annual budget submission
155 Forecasting and Budgeting Contract Execution:The Acquisition Agency Contracting Activity is the soleresponsible agent of MoD to establish contracts obligatingthe Government of Afghanistan to purchase goods and services.The Acquisition Agency monitors the execution of thecontract to ensure that it is executed in MoD for ammunitionprocurements.
156 Forecasting and Budgeting Contract Execution: The Acquisition Agency will not enter into contracts forammunition materiel without the written request of theAPM and his certification of availability of funds for obligation.
157 Inventory Management and AccountingRef. ANA Decree1-4.5
158 Inventory Management and Accounting Terminal Learning Objective:Understand then ammunition management principles within theANAEnabling Learning ObjectivesThe student will define ammunition inventory managementprinciples of type, quantity, and location.Understand the requirement for ammunition type managementUnderstand the requirement to maintain records of all of the onhand quantities, locations, and conditions.
159 Inventory Management and Accounting Inventory management is the process of insuring serviceableammunition of the correct type and quantity is at the rightlocation at the right time.Training and operational ammunition needs careful, constantmanagement as continual usage requires routine replenishment
160 Inventory Management and Accounting Every effort should be made to use the oldest ammunitionfirst in order to use it before it exceeds its useful lifeFirst In – First OutThis may mean that some ammunition that is positioned tosupport contingency missions will be issued for training andthen replenished with new stocks
161 Inventory Management and Accounting Inventory management requires careful planning and analysis to ensure the quantity and types of ammunition needed and forecasted are available at the necessary locations and proper times.This applies to all levels of ammunition support from theNADs to the ATDsEach depot maintains control of its stocks using Decree 4.0 process and procedures for accountability.
162 Data ManagementAn accurate record of the quantity and types of ammunition on hand in each ANA location is necessary to determine what ammunition needs to be repositioned to support requirements.Effective record keeping is essential to the maintenanceof the ammunition stockpile
163 Data Management Ammunition is tracked by identification and lot number The lot number (manufacturer’s production control identification number) identifies production batches of ammunitionThis allows the APM to identify ammunition that is restricted or suspended from use based on stockpile and surveillance testing
164 Ammunition Accountability Terminal Learning Objective:Understand the needs, requirements and process for accountingof all ammunition and explosives maintained for use by the ANAEnabling Learning Objectives:Understand the established processes for accounting forammunition and explosivesUnderstand the flow of accountability from the national levelto the ultimate user levelUnderstand the need for proper resolution of discrepanciesin the records
165 Ammunition Accountability (con’t) Stock record accountability is maintained by the ANA fromdelivery by the manufacturer until the ammunition is expendedor consumedThe national and corps ammunition depots establish andmaintain stock record accountability of ammunition in theircontrol
166 Ammunition Accountability (con’t) The national and corps ammunition depots establish stockrecord accountability using Stock Record Procedures ofDecree 4.All issues to supported units for training ammunition will beauthenticated by the commander of the next higher level andexpenditures reconciled with the depots within 2 days of use
167 Ammunition Accountability (con’t) The Brigade Logistic Battalion’s Ammunition Transfer Depotwill record transfers of issue on ANA Form 9 and providedocumentation to the supporting CAD for posting to the StockRecord Account.Minor discrepancies that cannot be resolved by the StockRecord Officer will be addressed and resolved by thecommander two levels above the requestor
168 Ammunition Accountability (con’t) Major discrepancies and any discrepancies in sensitiveammunition and explosives will be addressed and resolvedby a board of officers appointed by the Corps CommanderLapses in control and accountability may result in severepunitive sanctions.Loss of ammunition and explosives is not acceptable
169 Ammunition Accountability (con’t) The most commonly used stock accounting forms forammunition are:MoD ANA Form 2 – Ammunition Stock Record CardMoD ANA Form 3 – Register of Supply ActionsUsed by both support and supported units.
170 Ammunition Accountability (con’t) Forms (con’t)MoD ANA Form 4 – Form Controlling RegisterANA Form 9 – Issue and Turn-In OrderUsed to release ammunition and materiel from depot stockage, transfer accountability from the support depot to the recipient, initiate shipping/transportation documents preparation
