Introduction. Placement of equipment in administrative storage should be for short periods of
time when a shortage of maintenance effort exists. Items should be in mission readiness within
24 hours or within the time factors as determined by the directing authority. During the storage

maintenance services and Equipment Serviceable Criteria (ESC) evaluations should be
completed, shortcomings and deficiencies should be corrected, and all Modification Work Orders
