Figure 2-1. Sample Allowance Change Request.
CHAPTER 2 COSAL The  Coordinated  Shipboard  Allowance  List (COSAL)   is   a   technical   and   management document,  The  COSAL  is  a  technical  document to  the  extent  that  equipment,  component,  part nomenclatures,   operating   characteristics,   and technical manuals are described in allowance parts lists (APLs) or allowance equipage lists (AELs). This supply document lists the items required to achieve  maximum,  self-supporting  capabilities  for an extended period of time. The COSAL provides the ship with basic guidance for determining items that should be stocked by supply or held in the custody   of   other   departments.   That   is   why changes are incorporated promptly and properly upon  receipt.  Corrective  action  is  to  be  taken when determined that any part of the COSAL is inaccurate  and  incomplete. The COSAL will specify the range and depth of  all  equipment  validated  to  be  on  board  your ship  or  station.  This  information  is  maintained for every activity and ship in the weapons system file  (WSF). This  chapter  discusses  how  to  maintain  the COSAL,   make   configuration   and   allowance changes,  and  update  the  COSAL. COSAL   MAINTENANCE Proper  maintenance  of  the  ship’s  COSAL  is vital to adequate support of installed shipboard equipment.  Once  a  ship’s  installed  equipment  has been  validated,  reported,  and  reflected  in  an updated  COSAL,  the  supply  officer  has  the responsibility to make sure any later equipment installations,  removals,  or  changes  are  reported to  the  cognizant  inventory  control  point  (ICP)  and type   commander   (TYCOM)   and   the   ship’s COSAL is revised accordingly. When changes are done  between  overhauls,  the  ship  has  the responsibility to initiate the reports and update the   COSAL. COSAL  maintenance  is  a  very  important  task. The  person  you  make  responsible  for  maintaining the ship’s COSAL should be one of your sharpest personnel.  There  is  not  any  way  to  emphasize enough  just  how  important  it  is  to  maintain  an accurate  and  up-to-date  COSAL. COSAL maintenance includes reporting con- figuration   changes,   processing   changes,   and detecting  inconsistencies  between  the  COSAL  and other  ship’s  selected  records.  This  also  includes reporting   conditions   that   adversely   affect   the shipboard   maintenance   effort   when   they   are discovered. REPORTING   CONFIGURATION CHANGES  AND  SUPPORT PROBLEMS COSAL  maintenance  is  the  dual  responsibility of  the  maintenance  and  supply  personnel.  The maintenance technician is most aware of what is happening  to  his  or  her  equipment.  Therefore,  the technician  is  the  primary  reporting  source  and must  be  able  to  detect  and  report  his  or  her maintenance support problems. The methods he or she can use are discussed later in this chapter. Supply  personnel  must  process  these  COSAL reports  promptly.  The  supply  officer  or  the leading   Storekeeper   should   make   sure   these reports are filled out correctly before submission. Configuration Changes To   enable   the   allowance   list   maintenance activity  to  prepare  and  publish  timely  COSAL revisions   that   reflect   a   ship’s   configuration change,   it   is   essential   for   each   equipment/ component installation, removal, or modification done  between  regular  overhauls  to  be  promptly reported  using  a  ship’s  Configuration  Change Form  (CCF),  OPNAV  Form  4790/CK,  per  the Ships’  Maintenance  and  Material  Management (3-M)  Manual,  OPNAVINST  4790.4. 2-1
