GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  Per Ref (a), Total Force Structure Division (TFSD) has updated the published Authorized Strength Report (ASR) data for Fiscal Year (FY) 18 through FY 38 Tables of Organization and Equipment (TOE).  The Total Force Structure Management System (TFSMS) was updated 17 August 2017 and incorporates all approved changes to the Marine Corps force structure for planning purposes since the previously published ASR.  NOTE:  The TFSMS website has migrated to MCEITS and the URL has changed to https:(slash)(slash)tfsms.mceits.usmc.mil.
2.  Per ref (c), implementation of the Commandant of the Marine Corps (CMC) approved force structure as developed by Marine Corps Force (MCF) 2025 Force Structure Review (FSR), and based upon an end strength of 185k continues to be monitored by the standing DOTMLPC Working Group per ref (a).  Per ref (d) a Reserve Component FSR was convened in May 2017.  CMC further directed additional study and analysis of Reserve Force 2025 initiatives by the DOTMLPF_C Working Group, with a goal of implementation beginning with publication of the February 2018 ASR.
3.  Reference (b) establishes the policy for manning levels of Marine Corps units, according to precedence levels Excepted, Operating Forces, Priority and Pro-Share.  Per ref (f) CMC outlined guidance directing a 1% reduction in enlisted manning levels concurrent with the implementation of MCF 2025 and stabilization of future force levels.
3.a.  The following is a summary of major force structure changes which have been incorporated in this ASR:  delay of relocation of Rifle Company E and Site Support Des Moines, Iowa to Granger, Iowa until FY20 due to changes in the facilities plan, realignment of Artillery Battery K from Artillery Battalion 1/10 to Artillery Battalion 2/10, update of Ammunition Company, Supply Battalion leader to led ratio, activation of Deputy Commandant Information (DC I), establishment of  the CMC directed G-10, establishment of a Rapid Capabilities Office within the Marine Corps Warfighting Lab, establishment of structure in support of the Joint Force Headquarters-Cyber and Forward missions, under the control of MARFORCYBER, addition of combat cargo detachment structure in support of future amphibious ship delivery, establishment of the Active Reserve structure necessary to support the Individual Mobilization Augmentee integration initiative, relocation of VMR-1 to Fort Worth, TX and realignment under Marine Forces Reserve, the implementation of the 06xx and 26xx occupational field modernization plans, and the merger of the 43xx and 46xx occupational fields to become 45xx occupational field.
4.  Updated TOEs are available through the internet at the TFSMS website:  https:(slash)(slash)tfsms.mceits.usmc.mil/portal/page/portal/TFSMS/MAIN.  Users must request access by clicking on the "Request New TFSMS Account" link shown on the first page of the website.  Normal response time for access is less than 24 hours.
5.  Readiness reporting.  The Defense Readiness Reporting System-Marine Corps (DRRS-MC) automatically populates a unit's readiness report with force structure requirements from the current published fiscal year (FY) TOE resident in TFSMS.  Effective 1 Oct 2017, units should validate the force structure requirements in their unit's readiness report using the current published FY18 TOE in TFSMS or use the TOE link in a unit's readiness report in DRRS-MC.
5.a.  Instructions for downloading unit TOE reports:  After log-in, click on “TFSMS Reports Portal - Click Here for TOE Information" link.  A unit's TOE is located in the "Standard Reports (Published)" folder.  After entering the folder, click on "Unit TOE Report" and select the applicable FY and UIC.
5.b.  Structured units can also run a current FY TOE report after log-in by entering a UIC or unit name in the "Run TOE Report" and clicking "Show" to display the unit's current TOE.  The FY17 TOE will remain as the current FY in TFSMS until 30 September 2017.  On 1 October 2017, the FY17 TOE will roll over and FY18 will become the current FY in TFSMS.  In conjunction with the FY roll-over on 1 October 2017, FY38 TOE will be added to the extended FYDP in TFSMS and will be available for download.
6.  This Marine Administrative Message (MARADMIN) cancels Ref (c) and will remain in effect until the publication of the Feb 2018 ASR.
7.  TFSMS has been updated per changes in the MOS manual NAVMC 1200.1c starting in FY 2018.  Please refer to the NAVMC page 2 paragraph b.  Summary of revisions for a listing of Military Occupational Specialties (MOS).  MOS advocates are requested to notify TFSD (Capt Curry, POC of this message) of new occupational field (OCCFLD) manager and MOS specialist replacements, as required, to facilitate the TOECR approval process.
8.  The moratorium for Tables of Organization and Equipment Change Requests (TOECRs) continues subject to the following guidance:
8.a.  UICs established, redesignated or reorganized by MCF 2025, cannot be changed by TOECR until FOC is achieved and reported as defined by the initiating MCBUL 5400.  This restriction also applies to billet-level initiatives executed under MCF 2025.  Billet level initiatives are considered FOC when the DOTMLPF'C WG determines that all relevant actions have been properly completed.  The DOTMLPF'C WG is the forum chartered to track MCF 2025 Implementation.  Re-phasing and/or other modifications intended to optimize the implementation of an MCF2025 Initiative must be properly vetted by the DOTMLPF'C WG.
8.b.  Changes to military manpower structure must be endorsed and deemed mission essential by the appropriate DC or MARFOR commander.  The TOECR must clearly articulate a mission essential requirement, along with a clear description of the degraded mission impact and/or unacceptable levels of risk necessitating the TOECR.  TOECRs not meeting these criteria will be returned without action.  No other changes, except as noted below, will be accepted.
8.c.  MOS Manual changes initiated per ref (e) involving significant MOS conversions, consolidations, creations of Primary MOS, and/or significant structure redistributions within or between UICs must be reviewed by the DOTMLPF'C WG.  A detailed implementation and/or phasing plan must be submitted.  Contact the DOTMLPF'C Secretariat (para 9.i below) for a determination regarding whether the initiative will require subsequent DOTMLPF'C review.  Based on the timeline included in reference (e), initiatives of this type must be reviewed by the DOTMLPF'C WG no later than December 2017.
8.d.  Effective 1 October 2017, all previous limitations on civilian TOECR submissions are lifted.  Per reference (a) all civilian TOECRS must adhere to the instructions found at https:(slash)(slash)mccdc.portal.usmc.mil/org/cdd/TFSD/Civilian%20TOECR%20Process%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx, which has been recently revised.  This site identifies all required TOECR supporting documentation and describes required staffing actions.  Specific process changes include:  a reduction in the required supporting documentation for civilian billet changes (i.e., factor sheets, position management checklist, org charts and billet spreadsheet requirements removed in most cases), clarification of the submitting commander's TOECR letter requirement and a revised template, separate security manager endorsement requirement removed in lieu of including security manager verification of clearance changes in the text of the commander's TOECR letter, a revised template for servicing Human Resource Office (HRO) endorsements, a revised Funding Data Sheet, a reduction in the instances requiring a funding sheet, and a significant reduction to the instances necessitating internal Headquarters Marine Corps (HQMC) staffing of civilian TOECRs which will expedite processing actions of valid/conforming TOECRs upon receipt by TFSD.  These changes are intended to expedite TOECR processing and thereby better facilitate timely civilian personnel and hiring actions.
8.e.  The Equipment TOECR moratorium established by MARADMIN 008/17 remains in effect until 1 November 2017.  At that time equipment TOECRs may be submitted, but subject to the same restrictions regarding MCF2025 actions listed in para above 8a above.
8.f.  TOECRs for Joint and External structure may be submitted and completed as required.
8.g.  TOECRs associated with DOTMLPF'C Initiatives will be processed with DOTMLPF'C and or MROC concurrence as appropriate.
8.h.  TOECRs updating mission statements and realigning billet structure within a UIC (no other billet attribute changes) may be submitted and completed as required, subject to any applicable restrictions defined in para 8a. above.
8.i.  IAW Ref (a), all TOECRs affecting military manpower structure will be programmed to occur three years in advance of the current fiscal year (FY20).  Changes earlier than FY20 must clearly articulate the rationale for changes inside the three year threshold.  TOECRs not meeting this criterion will be returned without action.  Changes inside this window have the potential to adversely impact the MCF2025 build, manpower plans, and associated formal school training planning factors and readiness reporting.
8.j.  IAW Ref (a), all TOECRs must be submitted electronically via TFSMS.  Any organization lacking the capability to submit electronically should contact TFSD for assistance.  With the exception of Joint and External Agencies, any TOECR from a Marine Corps organization received outside of TFSMS workflow will be returned without action.
8.k.  IAW Ref (a), Advocates are responsible for review and update of UIC mission statements NLT every three years.  For UICs that require mission statements (ref (a, Fig 2-1 Unit-Type Matrix), no TOECRs of any kind will be accepted if the UIC mission statement is missing or outdated.  TOECR submission on these UICs may continue once a revised mission statement package has been forwarded to TFSD.  The current approved mission statement date may be identified on the TFSMS UIC Attributes page (SCR0005).  For any questions on mission statement requirements for a given UIC or approved mission statement dates, please contact the appropriate MAGTF Element POC listed in para 9 of this message.
8.l.  The final day for submission of TOECRs for inclusion into the February 2018 ASR is 22 December 2017 (military manpower structure).  TOECRs of this type received after 22 December 2017 will be returned without action.  Submission may resume on 5 February 2018.  Civilian manpower and equipment TOECRs may continue to be submitted during this time.
8.m.  Implementation of Major Headquarters Activity policy and reporting requirements continue.  Specific actions within TFSMS and DCPDS to integrate billet information with budget execution data and to ensure that the Marine Corps reporting baseline remains in conformance with Departmental policy will be promulgated via SEPCOR as warranted, and in coordination with DC P and R and DC M and RA.
