Concept of Program Support. Maintain physical and financial control over Garrison PP&E using the DoD mandated garrison property accountability systems (DPAS). Ensure the availability of non-tactical Capital (Plant Property - has unit price of $100,000 or more), minor (has unit price of $2,500 to $99,999), and sub-minor (less than $2,500) personal property, by coordinating requirements through General Fund budget programs. The aforementioned actions are based on requirements identified by the Bases/Stations and military construction Project Managers. Capitalized property programs include CSE, selected FPSE and WHSE MOD equipment, and are procured with Procurement Marine Corps (PMC) funds. Minor Property Programs include PSE, FPSE, WHSE MOD, and MCON CE (includes JFIP) and is procured with O&MMC funds.
PROGRAMS SPONSORED BY LFS-1 ARE AS FOLLOWS:
- Personnel Support Equipment (PSE). The PSE program is used to buy furniture, furnishings and equipment in the BEQ/BOQ, messhalls and administrative offices.
- Command Support Equipment (CSE). The CSE provides for Government-owned nonexpendable equipment having an initial unit cost that is equal to or greater than $5,000 and but less than $100,000, which is not procured from a centrally managed program. The CSE provides for new, and replacement of non-tactical Plant property (i.e., waste pulpers, air analyzers, milling machines and conveyor systems).
- Collateral Equipment (CE). The CE provides for the initial outfitting of new or renovated facilities with furniture, furnishings and non-tactical/general equipment, in support of military construction (MCON). This excludes specialized, non-tactical equipment such audiovisual, telecommunication, computers, safety and security equipment.
- Warehouse Modernization (WHSE MOD). The WHSE MOD program provides for modernization of existing warehouses to better utilize manpower, storage space, and maintain care of supplies in long-term storage.
- Defense Property Accountability System (DPAS). This is the DoD mandated property accountability and equipment management system that provides the Marine Corps with accountability and financial control over Garrison Property.
The need to properly acquire, account for and maintain Garrison Property is critical to the Installation's ability to perform its day-to-day base support operations. To this end, LFS-1 provides the services necessary to support the Installation Commander's Garrison mission.
- Garrison Property defined. Garrison Property is non-deployable commercial off-the-shelf property such as furniture, furnishings, and equipment in the BEQs/BOQs and offices. It also includes items used to produce goods and/or services to support the Activity's Garrison mission, such as tangible equipment, industrial plant equipment, and or other types of assets, including intangible assets. Garrison property does not include Inventory (i.e., items held for sale in the ordinary course of operations), Operating Materials and Supplies (i.e., items held for use in normal operations, offices supplies) and National Defense Equipment (NDE).
- Accounting for Garrison Property. Capitalized property is both accountable and reportable. While minor property is accountable but not reportable, sub-minor property is with the exception of ADP equipment, pilferable and sensitive items, not accountable or reportable. Per MCO P10150.1, Activities that currently have or have acquired Capitalized assets and are the accountable Command for Garrison property, are required to complete the NAVCOMPT 167.
