The  OOD  maintains  the  security  of  the  unit, inspects packages and liberty parties, and carries out the ship’s routine. While performing all these duties simultaneously, the OOD sometimes finds the job overwhelming. Having complete authority over the ship, under the CDO, enables the OOD to  control  all  the  functions  of  the  job. DIVISION OFFICERS As  mentioned  earlier,  your  first  assignment will probably be as a division officer. The size of a division varies. Some divisions may have as few as  5  personnel,  while  others  may  have  as  many as 300. Regardless of division size, as the division officer  you  will  be  responsible  for  ensuring  the division  operates  properly  and  efficiently.  Some of the duties and responsibilities of the division officer  are  as  follows: Assuming   responsibility   for   the   duties assigned   to   the   division   and   for   the conduct  of  subordinates Promptly  reporting  to  the  department  head repairs required or other defects needing correction that are beyond the capabilities of  the  division Ensuring  optimum  material  readiness within  the  division Directing  the  operation  of  the  division through  leading  petty  officers Supervising the performance of the work centers within the division in carrying out the ship’s maintenance and material man- agement Ensuring   damage   control   equipment, fittings,   and   checkoff   lists   in   assigned spaces  are  in  proper  working  condition  and are  properly  labeled These duties and responsibilities represent only a  portion  of  the  division  officer’s  tasks.  Other responsibilities  may  be  assigned  by  department heads,  the  executive  officer,  or  the  commanding officer.  Many  of  the  division  officer’s  duties  are performed daily, while others are performed less frequently. Sometimes   you   may   feel   you   don’t   have enough  hours  in  the  day  to  perform  all  of  your duties. This is where proper time management and the effective use of your division personnel come into  play.  To  run  your  division  effectively,  you have to delegate some of your authority to your chiefs  and  leading  petty  officers.  Keep  in  mind, however, that while you may delegate authority, you  cannot  delegate  your  responsibility  or accountability. INSPECTIONS One  way  the  division  officer  can  ensure  the division meets all of its requirements is by holding inspections.  By  personal  supervision  and  frequent inspections, the  division  officer  can  ensure personnel  satisfactorily  maintain  spaces,  equip- ment,   and   supplies   assigned   to   the   division. Through  these  inspections,  the  division  officer  can 4-5
