NAVFAC-funded initial outfitting repair parts allowances required by the NCF for support of its assigned equipment are listed in Consoli- dated SEABEE Allowance Lists (COSALs). The COSAL establishes the support for assigned organic and augment equipment based on USN- numbered listings. COSALs are published under the authority contained in the NAVFAC/NAV- SUP program support agreement by Naval Ships Parts Control Center (SPCC), Mechanics- burg, Pennsylvania. COSALs are both technical and supply documents. They are technical documents in that equipment nomenclature, operating characteristics, technical manuals, and so on, are described in Allowance Parts Lists. They are supply documents in that they list all parts by manufacturer's code and part number, national stock number, unit of issue, and price and quantity authorized by NAVFAC mainte- nance policy. Repair parts allowances are designed to provide a 90 percent effectiveness for 1,800 construction hours or 90 days support. This 90-day period is defined as a 3-month utilization period for vehicles or equipment in new or like- new condition. Selection of parts included in the COSAL is made after identification; usage and insurance items are coded by maintenance capability according to NAVFAC Lead Allowance Parts Lists. Maintenance codes are used to control the allowed item range for each of the various organizational maintenance capabilities. The definition and application of maintenance codes are contained in appendix C of the COSAL introduction. There are two basic categories of repair parts: parts peculiar - NAVSUP modifier code 98 and parts common - NAVSUP modifier code 97. These are published in two separate COSALs. Parts peculiar are applicable only to specific makes or models of equipment. Parts common are the general repair type of items, (appendix G of the COSAL introduction) and are not referenced to any specific equipment. Military and commercial operators, manuals, parts manuals, and maintenance manuals are listed in the parts peculiar COSAL. A descriptive account showing the method of entry and how to use the COSAL is contained in appendix F of the COSAL instruction.
A third category of repair parts has been added to the battalion's allowance. The NAVSUP modifier 96 is a minimodifier 97 for use with the air detachment or an extended detachment.
The following supply aids have been developed and are distributed with each COSAL to assist personnel in the repair parts program:
