Mobile  Logistics  Support  Force
which the primary mission is supply and (2) ac- tivities  that  are  components  of  systems  commands other   than   NAVSUP   or   naval   operational activities. The  major  activities  in  which  the  primary  mis- sion  is  supply  are  (1)  naval  supply  centers  and (2)   naval   supply   depots.   These   activities   are responsible   for   warehousing,   distributing,   and controlling Navy supply materials. In addition to these activities, the mobile logistics support force (MLSF)   ships   act   as   afloat   extensions   of   the Navy’s  distribution  system. The other activities are strictly supply depart- ments consisting of (1) naval shipyards, (2) naval air  stations,  and  (3)  naval  stations.  The  mission of these activities is to provide specialized supply support   to   the   command   at   which   they   are located. Navy Supply Centers and Naval  Supply  Depots Navy   supply   centers   (NSCs)   and   depots (NSDs)   are   command   organizations   that   have been  established  for  the  centralized  administra- tion  of  various  types  of  supply  activities.  These supply  centers  and  depots  furnish  balanced  supply support to fleet units, shore activities, transient ships,  and  overseas  bases.  The  centers  have,  as components,  several  depots  that  stock  the  various categories   of   materials.   In   addition,   a   supply center  or  depot  may  have  certain  other  com- ponents  that  perform  related  supply  functions. Navy  supply  centers  are  based  in  CONUS while  Navy  supply  depots  are  located  overseas (with  the  exception  of  NSD,  Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania).  Military  command  and  coordina- tion   control   is   exercised   by   the   commanding officer   of   the   center   or   depot,   but   primary support  responsibility  of  the  centers  and  depots is exercised by NAVSUP. The departments of any NSC   or   NSD   with   which   the   senior   Ship’s Serviceman would most frequently come into con- tact  are  the  inventory  control  department  and material department. INVENTORY    CONTROL    DEPART- MENT.—   The  inventory  control  department determines  material  requirements,  manages  inven- tories   of   assigned   material,   controls   material receipts, and, when a purchase department is not warranted  or  approved  by  NAVSUP,  conducts procurement   operations.   Within   the   inventory control  department  there  are  several  divisions that  perform  the  following  functions: Requirements  division—Maintains  levels of   activity   stocks   and   stock   records,   provides status information, screens and analyzes supply documents, and performs other related functions. Receipt   control   division—Monitors   all documentation and procedures necessary for the prompt  receipt  of  material. Technical  division—Maintains  the  library that  is  used  to  identify  material. Purchase   division—Determines   the methods  for  purchasing  material  and  conducts negotiations  for  the  purchase  of  supplies  and equipment. Customer  services  division—Provides  the liaison  point  for  fleet  and  shore  customers  on material and service requirements. The customer services division is usually established when the volume of fleet or shore customer services is too great  for  the  requirements  division  to  handle alone. Otherwise, customer service functions are performed  within  the  requirements  division. MATERIAL DEPARTMENT.—   The material department plans and directs the storage, maintenance,  issue,  and  disposal  of  materials  and, when a freight terminal department is not. war- ranted, plans and directs the receiving, shipping, and   shipment   control   operations.   Within   the material department are several divisions that per- form  the  following  functions: Storage  division—Determines  and  main- tains proper stowage conditions and locations for material. Disposal   division—Operates   disposal, scrap,  and  salvage  yards. Packing   and   preservation   division— Performs  the  packing  and  marking  of  material  for domestic  or  overseas  shipment. Cold  storage  division—When  established, performs  for  subsistence  materials  the  identical functions assigned to the requirements and storage divisions. Retail ready  supply, 2-6 stores   division—Operates and self-service stores. shop,
