Soldier Support: Ordering MREs

Transferring MREs

There’s a mistaken assumption that supply sergeants and property book officers (PBOs) can order meals-ready-to-eat (MREs) in GCSS-Army whenever they want. The fact is that ordering MREs in GCSS-A is only authorized when the unit is directed by HQDA to do so and when a line of accounting for funding has been established. Units must order and receive MREs in accordance with their installation/state/command food program management office SOPs.

In addition, all MREs on hand must be inventoried monthly, and the balance-on-hand must be updated in both the Army Food Management Information System (AFMIS) and GCSS-Army.      

For further guidance, see AR 30-22, Army Food Program (Jul 19) HERE.
