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.
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 in progress.
The COSAL is an authoritative document that lists the following:
The COSAL-supported equipment installed in a camp.
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 cross-referenced data.
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 Ship's 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 battalion's 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 THE JOINT RESPONSIBILITY OF BOTH THEContinue Reading
