Structure and Manpower Allocation System (SAMAS) Code Book
Introduction
The purpose of the SAMAS Code Book is to provide a single quick reference for each of data
elements contained in the SAMAS file. It is not intended to be the authority, but merely a tool to
help understand the multitude of codes used in the Structure and Manpower Allocation System
database.
This document will be updated (at a minimum) after every SAMAS force lock. However, if
major changes occur in any of the data fields an incremental update will be made. To ensure you
have the most current version, please check the “As of” on the front cover. Copies of this
document are available online at:
http://www.afms1.belvoir.army.mil/files/qr/samas_code_book.pdf
Or you can use the Quick Reference (QR) code below right:

Contact Email Input

Get SAMAS Code Book

Each data element will follow the basic pattern below:
Description: A short description of the data element.
Length: The number of characters for the code. A length of 1 is a single character, 5
would be five total characters.
Type: The data type of the code. Alpha=only alphabetical characters,
Numberic=numbers only, and Alphanumeric = both alphabetical and numeric
characters.
Source: The authority for the code. The source may be an office, a regulation or DA
Pam, etc.
Explanation / Example: A more detailed explanation on how to interpret the code.
When possible, all codes will be provide in this section or as an appendix.
User Input: Users are encouraged to provide input, corrections, changes, etc. to keep this
handbook as current and as useful as possible. Please use the email QR code above or contact
Mr. David LeBlanc directly at [email protected]

SAMAS Data Field Elements
When SAMAS data is normally provided to the field, it is in a compressed (.zip), “Space
Delimited” text (.txt) format. There are no “headers” in the .txt file, so the data must be
formatted to associate the correct data element field to the data itself. See Figure 1 – SAMAS
Raw data file example below. The raw SAMAS data is occassionally provided in an Access
format. See Appendix A – Exporting Data to Excel from Access

Figure 1 - SAMAS Raw data file example
To format the data, you must first know how the data is arranged. Table 1 – SAMAS Data Field
Elements, provides the details on how to associate the .TXT data to the element name.
Number: Numerical order from 1 to 47 of all the data elements.
Element: The code used to identify the data. For example UIC is used for the Unit
Identification Code
Length: The length of the code. For eample, the UIC element is limited to six characters.
Position: The location of the data element in the text file. The COMPO element is the
first postion, UIC occupies the 2-7 position, the EDATE occupies the 8-15 position, etc. Both
the Length and the Position are critical in formatting the raw text data into a useable format.
Identification: The long name description of the element. For example, the identification
of COMPO is Component.

1.0 COMPO – Component
Description: For resourcing purposes, the POM Force is apportioned amoung four
components: the Active Army (COMPO 1), the Army National Guard (ARNG) (COMPO
2), the U.S. Army Reserve (USAR) (COMPO 3), and unresourced unit equivalents
(COMPO 4).

2.0 UIC – Unit Identification Code
Description: The Unit Identification Code (UIC) is a six digit code which uniquely
identifies every MTOE and TDA unit in the Army. The first digit identifies a unit as actual
or planned; the next three are the unique identity group, wherein a leading alpha character
always identifies an MTOE, and a numeric identifies a TDA. The last two codes identify
parent, subordinate and derivative units, including TDA augmentations to MTOE. The
second through fourth cannot be alphabetic "I" or "O".
Length: 6
Type: Alphanumeric

220-1, Army Unit Status Reporting and Force Registration – Consolidated Policies, 15 April
2010; and DA PAM 220-1, Defense Readiness Reporting System–Army Procedures, 16
November 2011.
Explanation / Example:

Types of UIC’s:
1. Parent UIC - Each parent unit MTOE and TDA will be assigned a unique UIC. The
recording of an MTOE and a TDA unit on the same authorization document is prohibited.
A numbered organization of battalion or equivalent level, or a company, battery, troop, or
detachment that is not an organic element of a battalion or other parent organization; will
always end with AA.
2. Derivative UIC (DUIC) - Used to identify organic elements of an organizational element
that is expressed in the organization structure or identifies a functional subordinate
element of an organization. The first four characters of a derivative UIC must be the same
as those of the parent UIC from which the organization was derived. Positions 5 and 6
will end with T0, T1, A0, A1, B0, B1, B2 etc.
3. Augmentation UIC - A nonstandard organization that augments an MTOE organization.
A TDA augmentation to a parent MTOE will be documented with a derivative UIC of the
parent unit such as WXXX99. Position 5 and 6 will end between 99 and 91.
4. Carrier UIC - A carrier UIC is assigned to provide a means to assign personnel to and
account for equipment in a unit until activation. Used only for MTOE activations.
Position 5 and 6 will end with 90.

5. Notional or Planning UIC - Assigned by DA, and used to track a planned unit prior to
the assignment of a parent UIC inside SAMAS. Begins with X, G, R, K
Future Activations – SAMAS will have a “place holders”
Still 6 characters, called Notional (Still must be approved)

G (COMPO 2)

T2 – AUG

R (COMPO 3)

T3 – TDA

K (COMPO 4)
6. Multiple Component Unit UIC - The first four characters of the UIC must be the same
as those of the parent UIC. The second position of the UIC will be N, denoting multiple
component, regardless of the parent being Army, Army National Guard, or Army
Reserve. The second position of the UIC will be N.
MTOE UIC by Component:
WN##AA - Parent Unit/Flag Holder
WN##X# - Compo 1 (AC)
WN##G# - Compo 2 (National Guard)
WN##R# - Compo 3 (Army Reserve)
Aug TDAs by Component:
WN##99 - Parent Aug/Flag Holder
WN##9# - Compo 1 - 9A, 9B, 9C, 9D, 9F, 9G, 9H
Compo 2 - 9R, 9S, 9T, 9U, 9V, 9W, 9X, 9Y, 9Z

3.0 EDATE – Effective Date
Description: The date on which an a specific action takes effect. EDATE is the primary
element used to differentiate Unit Subsets within SAMAS. The date that a projected
authorization document (MTOE or TDA) becomes the Reigning subset.
Length: 8
Type: Numeric
Source: AR 71-32, Force Development and Documentation, 1 July 2013.
Explanation / Example: In the format of YYYYMMDD (e.g. 20141016). To determine
which sub-set is the “Reigning Sub-Set”, locate the last entry for that fiscal year (Sept 30).

4.0 TDATE – Termination Date
Description: The termination date for the action within the subset equal to the EDATE of
the subsequent action
