materials, equipment, and transportation.

ORGANIZATION AND STAFFING
Setting up a maintenance management system
provides the Public Works Departments (PWDs) with
an effective tool for managing both productivity and the
resources available. To help you better understand the
elements of control for the maintenance management
system (table 9-1), lets review the organizational
structure (or staffing) of a PWD.
PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT
Figure 9-1 shows the recommended organization
for a small PWD. As a chief petty officer, you may be
assigned to overseas activities, security activities, or
remote activities within the United States. At these
locations you could perform the functions of either the
shops engineer or the assistant public works officer.
Public Works Officer
The public works officer (PWO), a Civil Engineer
Corps officer, is responsible to the commanding officer
of the base or activity for organizing, managing, and
supervising the PWD. The PWOs areas of
responsibility include the shops, the facilities, and the
personnel assigned to the PWD. The PWO is
responsible for the planning, designing, maintaining,
and repairing of facilities. He or she is also responsible
for all the safety certifications, energy conservation
programs, and environmental matters. He or she may
also be responsible for all the facility support contracts.
The Administrative Division is responsible for all
matters regarding civilian personnel, office services,
reports and statistics, financial management, and
Family Housing Division
Each installation that has family housing must have
a centralized family housing office. To centralize the
responsibilities for family housing management, you
will normally have a Family Housing Division within
each PWD. The Family Housing Division has two
responsibilities: housing management and housing
