Navy Region Northeast
Under the Commander-In-Chief, U.S. Atlantic Fleet, COMNAVREG NORTHEAST is to, exercise military command and provide primary support over assigned shore organizations; to serve as Regional Area Coordinator; to provide a Base Operations Support (BOS) infrastructure to the operating forces of the Navy, other Naval organizations and tenants; to oversee Class I & II land and facilities ensuring their optimum use; to provide guidance and standards for BOS services; to plan, program and budget for resources to support BOS requirements at assigned shore activities; to assess and improve installation management functions, quality of products, services, and readiness of assigned shore activities, and perform such other functions and tasks as may be assigned by higher authority.
The Commander, Navy Region Northeast also serves as Commander, Submarine Group TWO.
The commander exercises military responsibilities for Naval Submarine Base New London; Naval Air Station, Brunswick, Maine; Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, Kittery, Maine; Naval Weapons Station, Earle, NJ; and Naval Station Newport.
In its 2005 BRAC Recommendations, DoD recommended to consolidate Navy Region Northeast, New London, CT, with Navy Region, Mid-Atlantic, Norfolk, VA. This decision was made in conjunction with its recommendation to close Submarine Base New London. The consolidation of Navy Region, Northeast with Navy Region, Mid-Atlantic was one element of the Department of the Navy efforts to reduce the number of Installation Management Regions from twelve to eight. According to DoD, consolidation of the Regions would rationalize regional management structure and would allow for opportunities to collocate regional entities to align management concepts and efficiencies.
