In the following section, lets look at a
personnel office afloat.
SHIPBOARD PERSONNEL OFFICES
Let us briefly consider the makeup of
shipboard personnel offices. At sea, these
offices are obviously much smaller than
offices ashore. When feasible, personnel
offices will be located near the disbursing
office. On aircraft carriers, the personnel
office and the disbursing office may be
combined to maximize their effectiveness.
The nearness or the combination of both
offices is due to the close working
relationship between the PNs and the
Disbursing Clerks (DKs) and the continual
personnel and pay accounts. This closeness
or combination of off-ices also helps enable
a more timely submission of pay documents
from personnel to disbursing.
