Radiological Control Services:
The Radiological Controls Division (RADCON) serves as the focal point for the control and management of radioactive commodities in the Marine Corps, under the LOGCOM NRMP. Information is important to the acquisition and life-cycle management of radioactive commodities, providing insight on the types and hazards of radioactive materials, their functions and uses, license controls, and ultimate disposal requirements. The Logistics Radiation Safety Officer is responsible for the radioactive materials inventory and inventory reconciliation. Technical guidance is provided to the acquisition community, training commands and detachments, operational commands, bases and stations, and HQMC-level organizations dealing with anti-terrorist activities, and first responders to radiation incidents. Interaction with DoD and Service-level radiological controls community is important to the seamless transfer of equipment and information to ensure appropriate regulatory controls are established and followed by the Marine Corps. RADCON audits and program reviews are conducted to provide information regarding the fitness and compliance of radiological controls programs. The audits are both internal to LOGCOM for a review of permit administration, or external audits of MARFOR Commands, to determine their level of compliance to permit requirements. The information gained by these audits is not only important for compliance to regulatory requirements, but also serves the operational forces by ensuring their participation in the regulatory process as it relates to their mission readiness. RADCON attends conferences to provide relevant and updated information to the Marine Corps radiation safety community. RADCON provides training services to ensure license requirements are met, that appropriate hazards awareness is distributed to the workforce and is standardized for the economy of the program.
Small Arms Tracking:
- Headquarters, Marine Corps appointed MARCORLOGCOM as the Executive Agent (EA) for the serialized small arms reporting process. The EA is responsible for continuous monitoring of the Marine Corps small arms reporting process to enhance the management and oversight of the Marine Corps enterprise small arms inventory to ensure complete visibility, accountability, and safeguarding of all Marine Corps Small Arms remains consistent. - The Marine Corps Serialized Small Arms Accountability Program (MCSSAAP) provides management of the registry of Marine Corps small arms serial number records. It also interfaces with the DOD central registry on matters pertaining to serial number control of Marine Corps-owned small arms. The MCSSAAP carries out the requirement mandated by DoD 4000.25.2-M and MCO 8300.1D, for all services to establish a program and reporting system that provides continuous visibility, by serial number, over all small arms throughout their life cycle. The Registry at Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane, IN (NSWC) is contracted to fulfill this requirement for the Maine Corps. This program maintains accountability of Marine Corps small arms to ensure weapons are not falling into the wrong hands and to maintain program integrity. - Small Arms accountability and visibility is accomplished through the monitoring of in-transit shipments and reconciliation of records and receipts. A Small Arms Registry Website managed by NSWC provides data management and real time accountability and tracking of all infantry small arms. Maintains accountability of an active and inactive history file. Prevents invalid or erroneous transactions at the using unit level, updates files per transaction reporting (receipts, issues, turn-ins). The EA is required and responsible for tracking and processing Missing, Lost, and Stolen Reports for accountability control of small arms. - Continuous visibility and tracking of over 600,000 Marine Corps Small Arms to maintain program integrity. - The collaborative effort of the SAEA supports the following data input and management of Marine Corps Data Systems (i.e. GCSS-MC, SASSY, MIMMS, TLCM-OST, ATLASS, TFSMS, etc.) - Monitor all DODAACs that have a MC serial number and no serial number in the USMC Accountable Property System of Records (APSR). - Ensure proper accountability of small arms equipment that have been dropped or added to a unit’s accounting files that were not from a receipt or issue (Missing, Stolen, Lost, or Recovered (MLSR) report list). - Ensure proper accountability of Small Arms Light Weapons that are reported in Crane but not in SASSY, STS or MSST. - Ensure National Stock Number (NSN)/Serial Number combinations are not reported by more than one Activity Address Code in the USMC data system. - Validate serial number counts for SA/LW within Crane to the quantity of on hand NSNs in the USMC SA/LW being reported in the Marine Corps Registry. - Facilitate to the correction of small arms NSN where the NSN/Serial Number combinations are being reported in both Crane and USMC System but under different DODAACs.
Supplier Relationship Management:
Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) is the development of productive relationships with Marine Corps Wholesale Suppliers, in order to maximize supply support/responsiveness in support of the warfighter. SRM includes the identification, monitoring and assessing of supply performance metrics. Identification, monitoring, and assessing of supplier performance leads to actions that improve or maintain supplier performance, while migrating proven supply management principles to all wholesale providers. Relationships with wholesale suppliers are developed and nurtured through the execution of regular, face-to-face visits, during which supplier performance metrics are reviewed, problems and successes discussed, and appropriate action determined. SRM is also used as a funnel point for the fielding of supply questions/problems with the wholesale supply providers, from the retail level of supply (using units/Supply Management Units, etc). SRM also contributes to the establishment of a venue for monitoring supply support, communicating supply support problems, and working to resolve supply support problems, to the NSN level of detail, during major military operations. SRM makes use of Marine SNCO Supply Liaison billets located at several of the Key Supplier depots, in order to rapidly address supply support issues.
Wholesale Secondary Items Inventory Management:
- Wholesale Secondary Items Management encompasses a full range of end-to-end materiel management activities in support of ground weapon systems. The Wholesale Secondary Inventory Manager performs sustainment requirements determination (planning), source management; order management, returns management, program management for the Supply Management Activity Group, and maintenance/procurement planning to fulfill materiel readiness objectives. Secondary items include consumable and secondary depot reparables required to support ground weapon systems or serve as standalone equipment. The consumable items also include Heraldic items such as guidons and flags. - As the primary planning tool for the requirements determination, the wholesale replenishment stratification process produces requirements based on forecasted demands and balances requirements against on-hand assets. Requirements are quantitatively recommended for repair and/or procurement actions. The forecasting process provides data input to the stratification process and provides an estimate/projection of demand and supports the basis for establishing secondary items stock levels. - Source Management includes developing and implementing strategies for sourcing and acquiring materiel to meet requirements identified by the wholesale stratification process. Actions include executing and/or managing organic and commercial support capabilities and performance while ensuring sources meet priority, quality, performance and timeliness required by the customer. - Order Management includes all actions related to planning, organizing, directing, coordinating, controlling, and evaluating customer requirements to ensure effective, efficient and timely supply support to stock, store, and issue materiel to meet warfighter demands. - Returns management includes reviewing excess serviceable and unserviceable assets from the retail user via the Materiel Returns Program or GCSS-MC Service Requests. Detailed Disposition instructions are provided to the user and can range from retain, dispose of locally, return for repair, etc. This returns process is governed by the MCO P4400.82 and the DoD Materiel Returns Program manual. - Wholesale Secondary Items Management is supported by the Supply Management Activity Group (SMAG), a business activity in the Navy Working Capital Fund in which revolving funds are used to provide necessary goods to the Marine Corps and other DoD services using a business-like customer/provider approach. Sourcing actions are financed via SMAG and costs are recovered through the sales of NSNs from the Order Management process. Budget projects fund replenishment, rebuild, provisioning, war reserve and cost of operations. On an annual basis a budget is submitted via Program and Resources to the Navy and obligation authority is received back from the Navy. Obligation of funds and sales of materiel are monitored closely and are reported monthly to the Command and the Department of the Navy.
