They are  often  complex,  dealing  with  technical  areas or  personnel  problems.  One  of  your  challenges as a naval officer is to carry out successfully all the duties you are assigned in an efficient manner. To achieve this task requires much forethought. Although  your  duties  remain  somewhat  consis- tent,  the  conditions  vary  on  a  day-to-day  basis; sometimes they even change during the course of the day. After your entry-level training, your first duty assignment will probably be as a division officer. Division officers are assigned by the commanding officer  to  manage  a  division  of  the  unit’s  organiza- tion. Standard  Organization  and  Regulations  of the U.S. Navy, OPNAVINST 3120.32B, generally referred  to  as  the  SORN,  outlines  the  division officer’s  duties.  Note,  don’t  confuse  the  SORN with  the  SORM.  The  SORM  is  the  Standard Organization  and  Regulations  Manual  for  your individual command. We will look at some of the division officer’s duties later in this chapter, but first  let’s  look  at  your  authority  and  responsibility as  a  naval  officer. AUTHORITY  AND  RESPONSIBILITY When you accept your commission as a naval officer,  you  assume  many  responsibilities.  Your peers  in  the  civilian  sector  would  have  to work  several  years  into  their  careers  before assuming  such  responsibilities.  To  handle  these responsibilities,  you  need  the  authority  to  carry them  out.  Authority  within  the  Navy  means seniors have the legal right to require subordinates to   obey   their   lawful   orders.   Your   authority can   be   either   general   or   organizational.   You use  general  authority  to  fulfill  the  duties  and responsibilities  of  your  assignment  or  specific billet  within  an  organization.  By  virtue  of  your commission,  you  are  granted  the  organizational authority  to  perform  your  duties  and  respon- sibilities based on  United States Navy Regulations, 1990. NAVY   REGULATIONS Navy  Regulations   outlines  the  authority  of naval  personnel  in  great  detail.  (Chapter  10  of Navy   Regulations,   which   has   several   articles 4-1
