Maintenance & Logistics Command Pacific
The purpose of Maintenance & Logistics Command Pacific (MLCPAC) is to provide support services to Area and District staffs and units. Within this scope Personnel Division provides direct personnel support to Pacific Area, Eleventh Coast Guard District and MLCPAC staffs and units. We also provide support to other District staffs and units in the area of personnel shortages, training, housing, awards, and decedent affairs.
Maintenance and Logistic Command Pacific has five areas of responsibilities: engineering, finance and procurement, health and safety, inspections, and personnel.
The Engineering Support section has three internal divisions; civil engineering, electronic systems support, and naval engineering.
- The Civil Engineering Program maintains Coast Guard shore facilities and fixed aids to navigation, and manages shore facility- related programs, e.g. real property, environmental compliance, etc. It provides support services during the complete life cycle of a shore facility, i.e., repair, and eventually, demolition. MLCPAC Shore Division provides the following functions: (1) Management of the Area AFC-43 shore maintenance program; (2) Coordination of shore facility planning for Area, District, and MLC units; (3) Execution of the Areas AC&I shore construction program; and (4) Management of the Area's real property and environmental compliance programs.
- The Electronic Systems Division is responsible for the proper operation, maintenance, installation, and modification of all electronics, telecommunications and computer equipment and circuits for Afloat and Shore units in the Coast Guard Pacific Area.
The Procurement Branch is responsible for providing contracting support to MLCPAC units and commands except for construction and vessel related requirements, executing simplified acquisitions for MLCPAC and PACAREA staffs, providing guidance on simplified acquisition procedures to field units throughout the Pacific Area, and serving as the MLCPAC Small Business Specialist.
The primary responsibility of the Health and Safety Program is the provision of those services necessary to assure member fitness for unrestricted worldwide duty in support of Coast Guard missions and provide commanding officers with the capability to assess unit personnel and materiel readiness.
The Inspections section of the MLC is charged with insuring compliance with Coast Guard policy and monitors the efficiency of Area units.
Within MLCs are units called Integrated Support Commands (ISCs) which are field units of Maintenance and Logistics Command Pacific and provide direct support services to Coast Guard units. The Integrated Support Commands are the Coast Guard's centers of excellence for simplified acquisitions procedure (SAP) procurements. The ISCs are responsible for acquiring goods and services that exceed the contracting authority of the units within the ISC's area of responsibility. The ISCs have contracting authority up to $50,000. There are six ISCs serving the Pacific Area, they are located in Alameda, Honolulu, Ketchikan, Seattle, Kodiak, and San Pedro.
