A survey is the procedure required when Navy property or Defense Logistics Agency material is lost, damaged, or destroyed, except in incoming shipments. A surveys purpose is to determine who or what is responsible and to affix the actual loss to the United States Government. To make a true determination, the facts surrounding the loss or damage must be thoroughly investigated in a timely manner. The following forms are used in connection with survey procedures:
For more detailed information about the survey procedures, refer to the NAVSUP Manual, volumes I and II.
At some point in your career, you may be assigned to a Rapidly Deployable Medical Force (RDMF), a Mobile Medical Augmentation Readiness Team (MMART), a fleet hospital, or some other contingency related unit. These are units that can be deployed anywhere in the world on a short notice. To function, these units require supplies and equipment that generally are either not available or are in limited supply in the area to which deployed. To circumvent this problem, contingency supply blocks have been established. Contingency supply blocks consist of functionally packaged medical and dental equipment and supplies. Each block is assembled to meet the needs of a specific unit. For example, a surgical supply block contains enough equipment to establish 1 operating room and sufficient supplies for 100 major surgical cases. NAVMEDCOMINST 6440.2 lists several other blocks and their support capabilities.
The contents of each contingency supply block are enumerated in an Authorized Medical Allowance List specific to that block. The Naval Medical Material Support Command is responsible for developing, publishing, maintaining, and coordinating a comprehensive review of all AMALs on at least an annual basis. The AMAL booklet is the basic source document used to sustain supply block management. The preface of the AMAL booklet contains instruction for maintaining, packing, and marking the block.
Contingency supply blocks contain dated, shelf-life, or deteriorative items such as pharmaceuticals, intravenous solutions, and prepackaged items. To ensure operational readiness, make sure dated items in the block have an expiration date sufficiently far in the future to allow for a lengthly deployment (up to 1 year). To accomplish this, all blocks are to be inventoried on a semiannual basis during the first and third quarters of the calendar year by the assigned team, if any, or the designated supply block inventory board. This allows the team members to become familiar with the contents of the block and the operability of all equipment.
