MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (NNS) -- Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) has partnered with Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) to transfer the management and operational control of CNIC bulk and aviation fuel operations to NAVSUP effective Oct. 10.
NAVSUP is consolidating Navy petroleum management functions, "better aligning our capabilities to yield increased efficiency and provide improved support at the lowest cost to the warfighter across all shore-based functions," said NAVSUP Commander Rear Adm. Mike Lyden.
Commander, Fleet and Industrial Supply Centers (COMFISCS) will execute the consolidated management functions through its seven Fleet and Industrial Supply Centers, which are the theater leads for fuel logistics capabilities.
"NAVSUP management of these operations leverages existing regional fuels capabilities to enhance shore aviation fuels management, ensure standardization of fuels operations and support the installation commanders' responsibilities for performance, safety, security and environmental compliance," Lyden said.
NAVSUP's Naval Operational Logistics Support Center (NOLSC)-Petroleum team was realigned from NOLSC to COMFISCS and named the NAVSUP Energy Office.
"The team will provide technical support and oversight for all Navy and Marine Corps fuel activities and directly support the enterprise petroleum product and service area. It will continue to serve as the Department of the Navy service control point," Lyden said.
NAVSUP's deputy commander for fleet logistics operations will oversee NAVSUP energy policy.
"Consolidating Navy petroleum management ensures NAVSUP logistics capabilities are optimally aligned to support warfare enterprise objectives to deliver forces ready for tasking at reduced cost and further defines NAVSUP as the single face for fuels management to our operational customers ashore," said Lyden. "I look forward to the increased effectiveness this strategic consolidation will deliver to the Navy."
NAVSUP's primary mission is to provide U.S. naval forces with quality supplies and services. With headquarters in Mechanicsburg, Pa., and employing a diverse, worldwide workforce of more than 22,500 military and civilian personnel, NAVSUP oversees logistics programs in the areas of supply operations, conventional ordnance, contracting, resale, fuel, transportation and security assistance.
