1.  RESPONSIBILITY.  Responsibility for management of the Shore Establishment
rests with the command chain.  The Commanding Officer of a naval activity is
responsible for maintaining adequate condition of real property and providing
condition evaluations through the command chain.
Increased emphasis has been directed to the condition of the
Shore Establishment, particularly as this condition relates to readiness.
Readiness relates to the ability of a shore installation to perform its
mission within the constraints of personnel, equipment, facilities, and
operating funds.  The resources must be available in adequate quantities and
balanced with each other to achieve and preserve shore base readiness. When
resource levels are insufficient, or when one resource falls out of balance
with the others, the result is reduced effectiveness of the activity
performing its mission.  Facilities management permits the evaluation of
facility condition in relation to mission and resources assigned. Readiness
factors are:
a. C1:  Currently programmed resources will be fully adequate to support
the mission element being assessed
b. C2:  Currently programmed resources will be substantially adequate to
support the assessed mission element with only minor deficiencies arising
during execution.
c. C3:  Currently programmed resources will be marginally adequate to
support the assessed mission element.
d. C4:  Currently programmed resources are inadequate and will prevent
Command from performing the assessed mission element.
3.  CONDITION.  Facility readiness evaluation can only be determined by proper
condition assessment.  The Shore Facilities Inspection Program, as presented
in NAVFAC MO-322, is the basis for determining facility condition.  The ac-
tivity program is supplemented by the Specialized Inspection Program. This
Program involves services provided by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command
to inspect facilities that require skills or equipment not normally available
at the Public Works Department.  Generally, these inspections involve evalu-
ation of assets not easily inspected visually.  Examples are moisture de-
tection in roofing and underwater inspection of waterfront facilities. The
geographic Engineering Field Divisions (EFDs) of the Naval Facilities
Engineering Command (NAVFACENGCOM) are responsible for conducting or coordi-
nating inspections in their areas of responsibility.  Chapter 6 provides a
synopsis of the inspection program.
4.  SECDEF PROGRAM.  The Deputy Secretary of Defense, by Department of Defense
(DOD) Directive 4165.2, has directed, in part, that all services implement a
program for maintaining and repairing, in the most cost effective manner, all
active real property to a standard which will permit continued use for
designated purposes; and inactive facilities to a standard commensurate with
reactivation requirements.  SECNAVINST 11014.11A directs the Chief of Naval
Operations (CNO) to implement DOD Directive 4615.2, and to exercise
