8. 9. operation and supervision of the ship’s store except   when   the   ship’s   store   officer   is designated in writing, to be other than the supply officer. Performance  of  such  other  collateral  duties  as are assigned by the commanding officer. Your duties as a Storekeeper will be much the same regardless  of  the  type  of  ship  in  which  you  serve.  The procedures set forth in this book apply to both ships with Supply  Corps  officers  and  ships  without  Supply  Corps officers,  unless  an  exception  is  noted.  In  these instances, both procedures will be given. FLEET SUPPORT The Operating Forces of the Navy are charged with supporting United States national policy under a wide range of conditions from peacetime operations through limited  and  unlimited  armed  conflict.  For  this  reason, the Navy Supply System is designed with sufficient flexibility to function in support of the Operating Forces under the conditions existing at any given time. Ships are loaded with sufficient supplies to assure a prescribed period  of  self-sufficiency  and  to  permit  maximum retaliation when necessary. Shore bases and mobile support techniques are used to supply the Operating Forces as circumstances require. DEPLOYED FLEET SUPPORT Primary reliance for support of deployed fleets is placed  on  afloat  capabilities  which  consist  of self-support  by  individual  ships  and  support  provided by the Combat Logistics Forces (CLF). Overseas bases and bases in the United States except Alaska and Hawaii are  used  for  supplemental  fleet  support  when  supply support   is   beyond   the   capability   of   the   CLF. Supplemental  fleet  support  responsibilities  are  stated  in the approved missions of the applicable bases. FLEET SUPPORT IN UNITED STATES WATERS Fleet  units  in  United  States  territorial  waters  are supported by the permanent naval shore establishments, including  naval  supply  centers  and  depots,  naval shipyards,  and  other  activities.  This  general  principle does not preclude fleet commanders from using mobile support  units,  particularly  oilers  and  tenders,  for supporting other ships when feasible. The location and general mission of the shore activities in the United States  supporting  fleet  units  is  prescribed  by  the Secretary of the Navy and promulgated in the Basic Naval  Establishment  Plan.  The  detailed  mission  of these  activities  is  prescribed  by  the  management bureau,  office,  or  systems  command  and  is  usually promulgated  as  a  numbered  instruction.  Standards  of support are determined by the Navy Department and are promulgated  in  the  Navy  Department  Program Objectives, Naval Supply Systems Command Program Objectives, and other planning documents. OPERATION  OF  THE  INTEGRATED NAVY SUPPLY SYSTEM The Navy Supply System is integrated with the Defense   Logistics   Agency   (DLA)   Supply   System. Following  sections  describe  the  operation  of  the  Navy Supply  System,  the  operation  of  the  DLA  Supply System,  and  the  operation  of  the  integrated  Navy Supply  System,  in  providing  material  required  by  the Operating  Forces.  It  should  be  realized  that  the  Navy and  DLA  Supply  Systems  are  much  more  complicated than  the  following  descriptions  indicate.  The  brief overview  of  the  systems  will  assist  you  to  understand the  relationships  of  the  various  elements. THE NAVY SUPPLY SYSTEM The  term  “Navy  Supply  System”  describes  that system  under  the  direction  of  the  Commander,  Naval Supply Systems Command. It consists of inventory managers  and  stock  points  which  function  to  provide material  to  the  Operating  Forces  of  the  Navy.  The functions of inventory managers, including ICPs, were described  earlier  in  this  chapter.  The  operation  of  stock points (FISCs, INASs, and NSYs) is described in the NAVSUP P-485 in detail. Inventory   Control   Points   (ICPs)—Each   ICP manages one or more types of material which are held in a distribution system composed of stock points. The ICPs  provide  the  material  required  by  the  stock  points, based on transaction reports submitted by the stock point.  The  ICPs  stock  management  responsibilities  to the supply system are summarized as follows: position material at various stock points; retain inventory control of material through an extensive  stock  reporting  system; provide technical assistance and cataloging services  to  the  supply  system  (and  to  its customers). 2-7
