Da Form 5519-R - What Is It?
Da Form 5519-R, Tool Sign Out Log/Register is a form required for maintaining log procedures and controlling the inventory process. The form is used to keep a record of tool sets, kits, and outfits (further referred to as SKO) within the U.S. Army.
When not issued for usage, all SKO should be stored in a tool room from where they are then issued. The tool room custodian is responsible for all SKO in the tool crib, but the person to whom the tool was issued takes personal responsibility for it. Only authorized personnel can sign for the tools they receive: the tool room custodian must maintain a list of staff authorized to receive tools and must check each person’s identity before issuing any tools or equipment to them.
The DA Form 2062 issued on April 1986 is in use for 2018 - a fillable DA 2062 can be downloaded below.
