(including  Military  Sealift  Command),  and  inventory control points (ICPs) under the command of NAVSUP. Inventory   managers,   under   the   command   of NAVSUP,   exercise   primary   inventory   control responsibility  for  the  various  items  of  supply  used  by the  Navy.  Inventory  control  responsibility  actions include:      determining material and money requirements initiating  procurement  and  disposal  material     the positioning and repositioning of material Navy inventory managers participate directly in the various  Department  of  Defense  and  Defense  Logistics Agency  interservicing  and  cataloging  programs. All materials used by the Navy are considered as items  of  supply  and  will  be  managed  by  an  ICP. Excluded  are  those  items  assigned  to  a  single  agency  or military service inventory manager for supporting retail stock or end-use requirements of the military services. Navy  inventory  managers  other  than  the  ICPs include systems commands, project managers or offices of  the  Navy  Department.  A  systems  command,  project manager or office is assigned responsibility for a basic Navy program that requires the development, use, and management  of  material.  Their  interest  in  material  is only in their programs and is as broad as the program itself. FLEET AND INDUSTRIAL SUPPLY CENTERS Fleet   and   Industrial   Supply   Centers   (FISCs) provide a variety of logistics support services to fleet and shore activities as well as overseas bases. FISCs are  echelon  3  commands  and  report  to  the  Commander, Naval   Supply   System   Command.   In   managing consumer  end-use  material,  FISCs  are  responsible  for determining  inventory  levels,  procuring,  receiving, storing, issuing, shipping, or delivering material to the customer.  Three  overseas  FISCs  also  manage  and  store an intermediate level of inventory and Navy wholesale inventory  for  Navy  Inventory  Control  Points  (ICPs)  that directly  supports  the  fleet.  Fleet  units  send  requisitions to the FISCs that will either issue the material or refer the requisition to the cognizant ICP. If the stock point makes an issue from wholesale stock, the FISC will report this transaction to the ICP that manages the material. The ICPs will use this transaction item report (TIR)  to  determine  future  procurement  and  positioning of   replenishment   stock.   FISCs   also   operate SERVMARTs that function as a retail outlets. Fleet customers  can  use  the  SERVMARTs  on  a  walk-in  basis and  buy  material  with  a  money  value  only  document. SERVMART  stock  is  usually  limited  to  only  high  usage consumable  items. The following activities are representative stock points: FISC, Charleston FISC, Guam FISC, Jacksonville FISC,  Norfolk FISC, Oakland FISC, Pearl Harbor FISC, Pensacola FISC, Puget Sound FISC, San Diego FISC, Yokosuka FLEET COMMANDS The commander in chief of a fleet is responsible for establishing general logistic policies, plans, and orders for the support of fleet and shore activities in his area. He  establishes  standards  of  logistics  and  logistic readiness.  He  disseminates  information  to  subordinate commanders that is relative to operational logistic plans or   projects   and   coordinates   logistic   activities   of subordinate commanders. He is also responsible for conducting  the  supply  operations  assistance  program (SOAP). The fleet commanders in chief are assisted in their  logistic  responsibilities  by  the  fleet  supply  officer, a  professional  in  supply  and  transportation  matters. The  fleet  supply  officers  are  the  principal  logistic agents  for  the  fleet  commanders.  They  assist  the operational   and   type   commanders   in   developing logistic  doctrine  and  procedures. TYPE  COMMANDERS Ships of a fleet are grouped by ship types and are assigned  to  type  commanders  (TYCOMS)  for  purposes of administration. Their supply corps officers advise them of supply requirements, and requirements in Navy Department and fleet supply directives. They make recommendations  to  the  type  commanders  on  matters regarding  supply  policies,  procedures,  and  conditions 2-2
