  4. Furnish information to the Supply activity on the identity and quantity of material.
  5. Establish procedures to ensure proper operation of tool rooms and the performance of tool inventories.
  6. Ensure surveys are prepared in the event of loss, damage, or destruction of accountable material.
  7. Perform memorandum OPTAR funding, accounting, charting, and budgeting of costs. A separate material control register is maintained for each OPTAR held.
  8. Maintain adequate accountability of material and equipment on custody.
  9. Maintain inventory control of authorized allowances of material listed in the IMRL and authorized allowance lists.
  10. Validate NMCS/PMCS requisitions daily and maintain (by aircraft BUNO) current NMCS/ PMCS status records.
  11. Perform an inventory of aircraft, with technical assistance, upon receipt or transfer to ensure inventory log entries are made, and inventory shortage listings are prepared and forwarded to Maintenance Control for inclusion in the AIR.

117.2 Discuss the following Operational Target (OPTAR) funding and give examples of items procured with each:

1. Flight Operations Fund (OFC-01)- The following is a list of expense type transactions that are proper charges to the flight operations OPTAR:

2. Aviation Fleet Maintenance (AFM) Fund- AFM Funds will be used to finance the cost of the following:

117.3 State the procedures for accomplishing the Following:

1. Ordering parts and material- Requests for parts and material for indirect support of weapon systems maintenance are forwarded by work centers, and support areas, to Material Control.

NALCOMIS Operated Material Control shall:

  • Receive requirements from work centers and support areas (O-level).

  • Use appropriate automated procedures to provide data to the ASD (O-level).
  • Enter date and time ordered in the register to reflect the exact time of submission to ASD. This time is required for determining accurate NMCS start time and conducting follow-up inquiries (O-level).
  • Approve or disapprove indirect material requirements from work centers by reviewing message mailbox (I-level).

2. Receipt and delivery of parts and material-

3. Turn-in of defective components-

117.4 Define the acronym MILSTRIP and state its purpose.

Military Standard Requisitioning and Issue Procedure - A uniform procedure established by DOD for its own use to govern requisitions and issue of material within standard priorities.

117.5 Define and explain the following terms:

  1. ICRL (Individual Component Repair List) - A detailed statement of IMA's component repair capability that contains existing repair capability data on items previously processed by the IMA. It also identifies items that are capable of repair or for which future repair is not planned.

  2. CRIPL (Consolidated Remain-In-Place List) - A listing of all authorized remain in place items which is published by NAVICP and approved by the TYCOMs and COMNAVAIRSYSCOM.
  3. NMCS (Not Mission Capable Supply) - Material condition of and aircraft that is not capable of performing any of its mission because maintenance required to correct the discrepancy cannot continue due to a supply shortage.
  4. PMCS (Partial Mission Capable Supply) - Material condition of and aircraft that can perform at least one but not all of its mission because maintenance required to correct the discrepancy cannot continue due to a supply shortage.
  5. NSN (National Stock Number) - A 13 digit stock number assigned by the Defense Logistics Services Center (DLSC) to identify an item of material in the supply distribution system. It consists of a four digit federal supply classification (FSC), and a nine digit national item identification number (NIIN).
  6. NIIN (National Item Identification Number) - A 9 digit number that consists of a two digit national codification bureau (NCB) code and seven digits which, in conjunction with the NCB code, uniquely identify each NSN item in the federal supply distribution system.
  7. AVDLR (Aviation Depot Level Repair) - AVDLRs are financed by the NWCF. Under this process, the end user finances the D-level repair and procurement of 7R COG repairables through the local replenishment of these repairables to replace BCMs, lost, or missing components. Although the squadron usually initiates repairable demands, the IMA has primary control over whether these transactions would result in an AVDLR NWCF charge. Thus, the IMA or station will retain control of the AVDLR replenishment OPTAR and corresponding accounting responsibilities.
  8. AWP (Awaiting Parts) - The condition that exists when materials required to complete a maintenance action are not available on station/ship. AWP is that time when no work can be performed on the item being repaired due to a lack of ordered parts. Parts are not considered to be ordered until the demand has been forwarded to the Supply Response Section of the Supply Department. The time when AWP occurred and the length of time it lasted is recorded in the Maintenance/Supply Record Section. Items which cause AWP during on-equipment work are identified in the Removed/Old Item Section. Items which cause AWP during off-equipment work are identified in the (H-Z) Failed/Required Material Section.
  9. IMRL (Individual Material Readiness List) - A consolidated list that shows items and quantities of certain SE required for material readiness of the aircraft ground activity to which the list applies.
  10. AIR (Aircraft Inventory Records) - The AIR is used to establish a formal, continuous chain of accountability for specific equipment and material installed on or designated for use on any aircraft of a specified T/M/S. An AIR is applicable to all aircraft of a specified T/M/S and lists selected material and equipment accountable by all Navy or Marine Corps organizations that are assigned or physically possess operational aircraft.
  11. EXREP (Expeditious Repair) - The processing for repair of NIS or NC components (repairable or c consumable) which must be in support of, or related to, an NMCS or PMCS situation.

117.6 Explain the importance of the aeronautical allowance lists in relation to mission sustainability.

Lists of equipment and material determined from known or estimated requirements as necessary to place and maintain aeronautical activities in a material readiness condition. In the case of aerological and photographic material, the requirement is extended to all applicable naval activities.

117.7 State the purpose of the following forms and report:

  1. Financial Liability Investigation of Property Loss(DD Form 200)- A form used to document the report of survey and certify the survey process when government property is lost, damaged, or destroyed. This form is the official document to support establishment of debts, relief from accountability, and adjustment to accountable records for Supply System Stock and Property Book Material.

  2. Missing/Lost/Stolen Report- Reports of missing, lost or stolen items are made by a completed copy of a Financial Liability Investigation of Property Loss (DD Form 200) or Report of Discrepancy (ROD) (SF Form 364). If you are required to complete a DD Form 200 to adjust plant or minor property or inventory records, the completed form becomes the vehicle for the MLSR submission. The ROD becomes the reporting vehicle if the shipper denies credit for reported non receipt or shortages on supply requisitions. MLSR report number will be assigned for each reported incident and shall be numbered sequentially for each calendar year. Example: 1992/001-INITIAL. Losses and gains resulting from stock record adjustments will not be reported as MLSR unless the item(s) qualify under other criteria.

117.8 What is a flight packet used for?

Supply officers or Material Control officers of aviation activities will be responsible for flight packets for issue to pilots making extended flights. These flight packets will contain instructions to assist pilots of aircraft involved in extended flights to obtain material or services which may be necessary for the continuation of a flight. Custody and issue control of flight packets will be as prescribed by the CO. Flight packets will be inventoried by the Supply Officer or Material Control Officer when returned after each extended flight and at least weekly. Strict accountability will be established for control of the Purchase Order/Invoice/Voucher (SF 44) by the preprinted number on the document. Each aircraft making an extended flight will be provided with a flight packet containing, as a minimum, the following listed items.

  1.  Procurement documents:

2. Instructions for safeguarding and shipping damaged aircraft.
3. Instructions for procuring services and supplies.
4. Statement of Witness (SF 94).
5. Claim of Damage or Injury (SF 95).
6. VIDS/MAF (OPNAV 4790/60).
7. Applicable daily and turnaround inspection MRCs.
8. Fuel Sample Log Sheets.
9. At least three oil sample results for aircraft on extended cross country flights.

117.9 Explain the purpose of Source, Maintenance, and Recoverability (SM&R) codes.

SM&R codes are used to communicate maintenance and supply instructions to various logistic support levels and using commands for the logistic support of systems, equipment, and end items. These codes are made available to their intended users by means of technical publications, such as allowance lists, IPB manuals, MIMs, and supply documents. SM&R codes are assigned to each supported item based on the logistic support planned for the end item and its components.

The primary objective is to establish uniform policies, procedures, management tools, and means of communication to promote inter-service and integrated material support within and among military services. Thus, the establishment of uniform SM&R codes is an essential step toward improving overall capabilities for more effective inter-service and integrated support.
