for replacement. Tools requiring routine maintenance
are turned in to CTR for repair and reissue.
Requisitions will be submitted through prescribed
channels for replacement items.
As a crew leader, you should become familiar with
forms that are used to request material or services
through the Naval Supply System. Printed forms are
available that provide all the necessary information for
physical transfer of the material and accounting
Two forms used for ordering materials are the
Single-Line Item Consumption/Management
Document (Manual), NAVSUP Form 1250 (fig. 1-1),
and the Requisition and Invoice/Shipping Document,
DD Form 1149 (fig. 1-2).
As a crew leader, you are not usually required
to make up the entire NAVSUP Form 1250;
however, you must list the stock number (when
available) of the item, the quantity required, and
the name or description of each item needed. This
form is turned in to the company expediter, who
will check it over, complete the rest of the
information required, and sign it. Then it is
forwarded to the material liaison officer (MLO)
or supply department for processing.
You are not likely to use DD Form 1149 often
since the items most frequently ordered are bulk fuels
lubricants. This form is limited to a single page
must contain no more than nine line items. It is
not necessary to fill in all the blocks on this form when
it is used as a requisition.
When ordering material, you need to know about
the national stock number (NSN) system. Information
on the NSN system and other topics relating to supply
is provided in Military Requirements for Petty Officer
Third Class, NAVEDTRA 10044-A.
In a battalion deployed overseas, as well as at
shore-based activities, your duties can involve the
posting of entries on time cards for military
personnel. Therefore, you should know the type of
information called for on time cards and understand
the importance of accuracy in labor reporting. You
will find that the labor reporting system primarily
used in Naval Mobile Construction Battalions
(NMCBs) and the system used at shore-based
activities are similar.
A labor accounting system is mandatory to record
and measure the number of man-hours that a unit
spends on various functions. In this system, labor
utilization data is collected daily in sufficient detail
and in a way that enables the operations officer to
compile the data readily. This helps the operations
officer manage manpower resources and prepare
reports to higher authority.
A unit must account for all labor used to carry out
its assignment, so management can determine the
amount of labor used on the project. Labor costs are
figured and actual man-hours are compared with
Figure 1-1.NAVSUP form 1250.
