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.
Procuring Local Materials
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
Requisitioning Materials from MLO
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
Storing Material on the Job
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. Lock up high-value
