paragraph 3501 of the COM2NDNCB/COM3RDNCB - INST 11200.1 series. The decals must accompany the advance party and be available during the BEEP. PM commences within 5 working days after the arrival of the main body.
Before and during the BEEP, the battalion being relieved is responsible for scheduling, personnel requirements, tool requirements, USN-numbered equipment, and the internal BEEP flowchart.
The scheduling of the BEEP date is the responsibility of the battalion being relieved. This date must be coordinated with the incoming battalion.
Both the incoming and the battalion being relieved have personnel requirements. The battalion being relieved must make sure that all personnel counterparts are assigned according to section 7, paragraph 3702 of the COM2NDNCB/COM3RDNCBINST 11200.1 series. Personnel must not be assigned to other duties that conflict with their participation in the BEEP. ALL PERSONNEL ASSIGNED TO THE BEEP MUST REMAIN ON SITE UNTIL THE COMPLETION OF THIS PROGRAM. AIRCRAFT LOADING SCHEDULES SHOULD BE PLANNED ACCORDINGLY.
The battalion being relieved must make available all necessary tools and equipment needed to accomplish the evaluation and repair of the equipment. The battalion being relieved is responsible for the preparation of all USN-numbered equipment for the BEEP. These preparations must include the following:
1. Scheduling of the equipment for evaluation and repairs is coordinated with the relieving battalion. It is recommended that scheduling be done by PM groups, with the appropriate number of groups scheduled each day to permit completion of the BEEP in 6 working days.
2. All equipment repair orders (EROs) with a copy of the equipment evaluation inspection guide, figure 5-9, are prepared for each item of equipment. A copy of the attachment evaluation inspection guide, figure 5-10, for each attachment, when appropriate, is attached to each ERO.
3. All nonpreserved automotive, construction, and material handling equipment are cleaned and made available for evaluation and repair.
4. Have 2 full workdays of equipment precleaned and staged before start of the BEEP. This will assist in the full use of all the mechanics of both battalions.
The relieved battalion is responsible for the internal BEEP flowchart. There must be a plan for the flow of equipment and paper work through the equipment yard and shops. A diagram of the process of the BEEP, with the attachment evaluation inspection guide, equipment evaluation inspection guide, equipment repair order and equipment, is shown in figure 5-11.
To successfully accomplish the BEEP and to provide a continued uniform procedure for the evaluation and accountability of all equipment, attachments, collateral equipage, records and correspondence, the following procedures are joint tasks of both battalions:
1. Nonpreserved Equipment Condition Code - Hold a joint inspection on each nonpreserved item of assigned USN-numbered equipment. Perform a prestart inspection and vehicle performance test using the equipment evaluation inspection guide, figure 5-9. Both operations supervisors establish a recommended condition code.
2. Collateral Equipage - Perform a joint inventory and inspection of all Collateral equipage, noting condition and deficiencies. All shortages and not-fit-for-issue items are ordered by the outgoing unit. For those items already on order, check the requisition numbers to the 1250s. All outstanding requisition numbers over 90 days old should be suspected as having been shipped but not received. Have supply review and determine those requisitions with questionable status before reordering.
3. Equipment Attachments Condition Code - Perform a joint inventory and inspection of all equipment attachments, using the attachment evaluation inspection guide, figure 5-10. Both operations supervisors establish a recommended condition code.
4. Maintenance Records - Perform a joint inspection of all maintenance records, noting accuracy and deficiencies. Perform all required record updates.
5. Correspondence - Perform a joint review and accountability of all correspondence that is pending final action.Continue Reading
