CHAPTER  10 QUARTERS AFLOAT AND ASHORE This chapter explains the procedures used to operate and care for officers’ quarters afloat. It also explains the organization of bachelor quarters (BQs) ashore and the resulting operational responsibilities that are assigned to MSs. OFFICERS’ QUARTERS AFLOAT The  Commander,  Naval  Supply  Systems  Command (COMNAVSUPSYSCOM)  is  responsible  for  providing administrative  and  technical  direction  for  officers’ quarters afloat. To  discharge  this  responsibility, COMNAVSUPSYSCOM issues directives and letters of guidance and provides training and aid to operating personnel. TYPES Quarters on board ships are of several different types. Flag officers and commanding officers (COs) have  their  own  mess  and  their  quarters.  They  are normally larger and more like bedrooms than other officer quarters found on board ships. Flag  Officer Quarters  for  flag  officers  include  a  stateroom  and private head Facilities.    The  staterooms  are  like  small bedrooms  ashore. Commanding Officer Quarters for the CO are like the quarters provided for  flag  officers. Staterooms Staterooms   are   berthing   spaces   provided   for officers   aboard   ship. They  are  similar  to  small bedrooms.  Officers  other  than  flag  officers,  COs, executive officers (XOs), and sometimes department heads are billeted two to a stateroom. ORGANIZATION The mess caterer or, if there is no caterer, the mess treasurer is usually responsible to the mess president for the service, care, and maintenance of quarters afloat. Mess  Caterer The mess caterer is responsible for the efficient management  of  the  officers’  staterooms,  including maintenance   and   repair   of   government-owned equipment and stateroom facilities. The caterer is also responsible  for  providing  linen,  laundry,  and  cleaning services. Leading  Mess  Petty  Officer The  senior  enlisted  person  assigned  to  the wardroom  mess  is  the  leading  mess  petty  officer.  The leading mess petty officer is responsible to the mess caterer  for  both  the  supervision  of  foodservice  and stateroom service personnel. He or she also oversees the  details  of  the  daily  wardroom  mess  operation. Stateroom  Supervisor Ship’s size often dictates whether or not a stateroom supervisor is assigned. If assigned, the stateroom supervisor is responsible to the leading mess petty officer  for  supervising  the  personnel  assigned  to stateroom  service. As  an  MS,  you  may  be  assigned  to  supervise stateroom  services  afloat. As a supervisor, you are expected to manage and coordinate the activities of personnel who provide stateroom services. Your duties may include but arc not limited to the following: Planning  the  work  schedule Developing efficient methods for cleaning and maintaining   the   staterooms   using   limited cleaning  equipment  and  supplies  available Practicing   proper   inventory   management regarding   linen,   supplies,  and  cleaning equipment 10-1
