All civil engineer support equipment (CESE),
regardless of warranty coverage, developing
design deficiencies affecting safe operation are to

IN CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES
Activities within the continental United States
are to use an available franchised dealer for
repairs. If these sources prove unsatisfactory,
contact the cognizant engineering field division
(EFD) (TEMC) to obtain resolution.
OUTSIDE CONTINENTAL UNITED
Activities outside the continental United States
are to request the replacement parts directly from
the prime contractor. An SF 368 is to be
submitted. The activity is not to forward the
Further information may be found in the
NAVFAC P-300, chapter 23.
TEMC representatives visit periodically to
analyze and assist the activity. These visits are
specifically designed to review technical and
management procedures to increase the efficiency
and effectiveness of the activity. The TEMC
representative validates the equipment allowance
and reviews operations and maintenance pro-
cedures. A report of the visit and its findings,
including items of major interest, is made to the
commanding officer before the departure of the
Transportation assistance visits are made at
18-month intervals for activities with 50 or more
pieces of CESE. Visits are scheduled each 3 years
for activities with less than 50 pieces of CESE.
Additional visits are optional and should be
requested if desired.
As CESE becomes uneconomical to repair, or
simply overage, it has to be disposed of properly.
Whatever the instance, a Report of Excess
Personnel Property, SF 120 (fig. 1-8), is to be
submitted to the cognizant TEMC.
When CESE is in excess but still serviceable,
the TEMC will check and ascertain that no other
Navy requirements exist for this CESE. If no
other requirements exist, the cogizant TEMC or
Port Hueneme (Code 15) will instruct your activity
to place the CESE in the nearest Defense
Recycling Management Office (DRMO).
For all unserviceable CESE, contact the
cognizant TEMC for disposal instructions and
approval. After TEMC approval, turn in the
CESE and its history jacket to the nearest DRMO,
using a DD Form 1348-1 as a transfer document.
Ambulances and dental vehicles have special
disposal instructions listed in Management of
Transportation Equipment, NAVFAC P-300.
INVENTORY RECORDS ADJUSTMENT
Once disposal action is completed, it is
important to adjust the records to reflect changes
in your activitys CESE inventory allowance.
Therefore, it is essential that your TEMC and Port
Hueneme (Code 15) receive copies of the Report
of Excess Personal Property, SF 120; the transfer
document Single Line Item Release/Receipt
Document, DD-1348-1, from the disposal office;
and the Property Record Card, DD-1342.
