clearance authority sends separate replies for each split shipment.

Army activities receiving a negative status (D1 TMA/TMJ) for a
surface shipment verify the accuracy of the initial tracer request,
then submit a new request to the LCA. This second request is
submitted, within 120 days of shipment, by the Defense Data
Network (Routing Identifier RUWJHRA) or by mail to:
Presidio of San Francisco, CA 94129-6900
Upon receiving a negative status from the clearance authority (or, for Army
activities, a second negative status from the LCA) the tracing activity verifies the
accuracy of the data with the shipping activity. If valid, the shipping activity
transmits the data by ETM to the clearance authority. The shipping activity
includes additional data required to assist in tracing the shipment.
Tracing actions are not presented to the clearance authority
more than 150 days after the shipment.
