    What is the required status (certified depot/DSOR decision/other?) of a Designated Overhaul Point (DOP)/Designated Rework Point (DRP) in order to be included in the corresponding field within the initial Provisioning Technical Documentation (PTD) submitted to NAVSUP? Appreciate any references to relevant policy - thank you!


    Answer

    For Department of the Navy organizations, during the acquisition and sustainment phases, weapon systems and other products and equipment for which maintenance actions will be needed are determined.  Necessary parts and materiel (components) for maintenance task accomplishment are documented using the Interactive Computer Aided Provisioning System (ICAPS). The ICAPS files are then processed through the Weapon System File (WSF) at the Navy's Inventory Control Point (NAVICP) Mechanicsburg.  Weapon systems and product users are then provided with a list of the spare parts (the Allowance Parts List) necessary for life cycle support.  Ships and craft are also provided with an initial load out of on-board spares and shore-based spares.  The Policy and Procedures Manual, Provisioning, Allowance, and Fitting Out Support (PAFOS), Chapter 4, provides guidance.  Although references contained within the aforementioned, are dated a more recent issuance exist for each which preserves artifact’s relevance.  For example, MIL-HDBK 502, dated 30 May 1997 is replaced with MIL-HDBK-502A, dated 13 March 2013 and for Logistics Management Information (LMI) MIL-PRF-49506 / MIL-STD-1388-2B is superseded by SAE/GEIA-STD-0007 dated May 2013.  Paragraph 4.4.4.1 (g) mentions certification in context.  As of FY16 NAVSEA Standard Item indicates PAFOS Chapter 4 as germane.  Additional PAFOS chapters can be located through use of this URL: https://www.navsea.navy.mil/Home/Warfare-Centers/NUWC-Keyport/NSLC/PAFOS/.  Also one can reference the Data Item Description DI-MGMT-82106, Entry for Logistics Management Information (LMI) for Interactive Computer Aided Provisioning System (ICAPS) which is used to guide Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and others.
