b. Forwarding one copy of the work request to
the requestor to provide feedback on action taken.
c. Completing the P&E work using the cost
estimating form (fig. 6-9) and the work authorization/
estimate form (fig. 6-10).
d. Forwarding the project package to
COM2NDNCB/COM3RDNCB via the 2ndNCB/
3rdNCB DET for review/approval and funding.
Include in the package the site sketches, layout, work
description, and a cost estimate. Segregate the cost
estimate into maintenance, repair, and/or minor
e. When funding is received from
COM2NDNCB/COM3RDNCB, submitting a copy of
the BM and all 1250-1s to MLO for material
f. Placing the project on the job requirements
and status chart. The job order is entered and remains
until completed or canceled. The chart contains the
same information as those projects within the
battalions approval authority.
g. When all materials are received, scheduling
the job for accomplishment.
6. For specific job orders to be done by host
command or other forces, the maintenance chief
submits a work request according to the host
commands instructions to the 2ndNCB/3rdNCB DET
for approval via the CMO. He/she leaves blank block 2
of figure 6-9 for host command use. Lastly, the
maintenance chief initiates an MCD number for the
project in block 14 to provide a cross reference.
Standing Job Orders (SJOs)
SJOs are written for all work that is highly
repetitive in nature. With the exception of work that
has been referred to outside organizations, all
estimated and unestimated SJOs, including PMs, are
written using the work authorization form (fig. 6-10).
SJO numbers are identified by the code
SJO-XXX-YY. The XXX is the sequential order of the
SJO and YY is the fiscal year in which the SJO is
performed. Each SJO should include an exact descrip-
tion of the work to be accomplished and should
specify the frequency cycle. The camps SJO file,
once established, should be a continuous program
unaffected by battalion turnovers. The following
work is not considered appropriate for SJOs:
mount-out boxes, road signs, and grade stakes. The
maintenance chief should periodically review the
existing SJOs and forward recommended changes to
the 2ndNCB/ 3rdNCB DET for approval.
A PM schedule is provided to galley personnel 2
weeks before accomplishing galley equipment
maintenance. A list of galley equipment with
corresponding PM dates must be on file with the food
services officer. The camp COSAL programs
effectiveness strongly influences the success and
responsiveness of SJO accomplishment. The PM
coordinator maintains a status chart for all SJOs.

Preventive maintenance is intended to reduce
the breakdown and requisite repairs to designated
camp equipment. PM procedures are accomplished
on SJOs that entail a systematic and periodic
examination, lubrication, minor adjustments, and
repairs to camp equipment. They involve duties such
as oiling, greasing, cleaning, and tightening of
components. This is all with the intent to prevent
accelerated deterioration. Any work beyond this level
is done by initiating the appropriate service form or
The inspection branch (PM/COSAL coordinator)
is responsible for the following specific actions:
1. Inventory all camp equipment that meets the
Impairs the operational efficiency of the

Presents a safety hazard in the event of
breakdown or damage.
Is more cost effective to repair than replace.
Requires a long lead time to replace or
procure repair parts.
2. Review equipment files to determine the
maintenance requirements. File information should
include equipment manuals and brochures, nameplate
data, operating instructions, drawings, specifications,
replacement/repair parts, and maintenance history.
These files are developed and maintained for all
equip- ment covered under PM. Files are also
developed and maintained for other systems not under
our control. This includes intrusion detection systems,
telephones, fire alarms, and such that require
maintenance and repair actions.
