are accurate. Figure 3-20 is what a completed EAC report looks like.
Remember, the EAC is only for tracking materials bought locally. Every time you put in an add-on your EAC goes up and the money left to complete your project goes down!
Home port is through and you are ready to start your project! How successful your home port planning was will now be obvious to all concerned. You are ready to draw your materials from MLO using NAVSUP form 1250-1s. One important thing to remember while deployed is to only keep 10 working days worth of materials on the jobsite. Your 2-week windows are a good tool to use here.
Materials bought locally require special attention and a little foresight. Countries using the metric system often provide materials incompatible with ours, especially with pipe thread and diameter. A good turnover with the previous battalion will help identify and avoid some of the pitfalls associated with locally procured materials.
All material is requisitioned from MLO on a 1250-1. Your company will give MLO a list of people authorized to requisition and receive material. Your name must be on the list authorizing you to requisition material. The only rule MLO has is that the same person cannot requisition
AND receive the same material. You must give MLO the 1250-1s in advance so they can process the paper work and pull the material out of storage and stage for pick-up or delivery to your job. Table 3-1 lists the lead times that your material will be available for pick-up after your 1250-1 reaches MLO.
If you requisition material from the CONUS, allow at least 60 days for normal requisitions and 120 days for long lead items. You turn in materials to MLO using a 1250-1 completed in red ink
Requisition only the materials you will use for the next 2 weeks. Materials required to complete your 2-week windows are a good measure of this. Once materials are on your job you must protect them from pilferage, weather, and jobsite damage. Store them indoors if possible. If materials have to be stored outdoors, keep them off the ground.
