Emergency/Service Work and SJOs
Material required that is available in the camp
maintenance storeroom is obtained as shown in
figures 6-5 and 6-11. Material required that is not
stocked in the camp maintenance storeroom is
acquired through the following procedures:
1. The camp maintenance storeroom retains the
yellow copy and returns all nonfillable 1250-1s to the
camp maintenance chief.
2. The expeditor logs 1250-1s in the 1250-1 log
book. The yellow copy of the 1250-1 is retained by the
camp maintenance storeroom and filed in a
procurement section tickler file. The other copies of the
1250-1 are forwarded to the battalion supply office.
3. The supply office processes BRAVO company
DTO through normal supply procedures and returns the
pink copies of the 1250-1s to the CMO after assigning
a requisition number. These pink copies, which are
provided by the supply department every 10 days, are
forwarded to the expediter for 03 log updating. The pink
copies of ESA and SJO 1250-1 forms are then
forwarded to the camp maintenance storeroom. Here,
the yellow copies are pulled from the tickler file and the
pink copy used to establish and maintain historical
demand information. By using historical demand
information, BRAVO company can advise supply to
adjust stock levels on storeroom shelves. Figures 6-5
and 6-11 detail these procedures.
Camp Maintenance Storeroom
The camp maintenance storeroom is under the
control of the supply department and operated
according to the Seabee Supply Manual, COM2ND-
NCB/COM3RDNCBINST 4400.3 series. Material is
issued to authorized camp maintenance personnel
using form 1250-1. Figure 6-18 details the major
actions to reorder camp maintenance storeroom stock.
The supply department manages the camp
maintenance storeroom to include construction
material used for camp maintenance and repair parts
for COSAL supported equipment. Goody lockers,
excess piles, or stockpiles of construction material in
camp maintenance spaces are not authorized. The only
exception is for that material required to perform work
Allowance List (COSAL)
The COSAL is an authoritative document that lists
The COSAL-supported equipment installed in a
The repair parts and special tools required to
operate, overhaul, and repair the supported equipment.
The COSAL is both a technical and a supply
document. It is a technical document to the extent that
the equipment, nomenclature, operating
characteristics, and technical manuals are described in
the APL. It is a supply document as it lists the items
required to continue the maximum self-supporting
operations for extended periods of time.
The COSAL is organized into three parts.
Part I contains indexes and installed equipment.
Part II contains associated APLs.
Part III contains repair parts allowance and
Two copies of the published COSAL are retained
at the camp. One copy is kept in the supply depart-
ment. The remaining copy is for the BRAVO company
camp maintenance PM/COSAL coordinator.
The initial COSAL is based on the equipment
configuration data submitted to the Ships Parts
Control Center (SPCC). This information is kept and
contained in a computerized weapons system file
(WSF) at SPCC. Precise configuration information is
essential. The validity of the COSAL depends on
initially establishing an accurate configuration and
properly updating configuration changes.
Proper maintenance of the camp COSAL is vital.
All equipment must be validated, reported, and
reflected in an updated COSAL. The battalions
supply officer must, based on input from the
PM/COSAL coordinator, ensure that any subsequent
installations, removals, or modifications are reported
to the cognizant inventory control point (ICP). The
supply officer also must report any changes to the type
commander and ensure that the camp COSAL is
revised accordingly. COSAL MAINTENANCE IS
