GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. Per Ref (a), Total Force Structure Division (TFSD) has updated the published Authorized Strength Report (ASR) data for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 through FY2039 Tables of Organization and Equipment (TOE).  The Total Force Structure Management System (TFSMS) was updated 6 September 2018 and incorporates all approved changes to the Marine Corps force structure for planning purposes since the previously published ASR.  This MARADMIN cancels ref (d) and will remain in effect until the publication of the February 2019 ASR.
2.  Ref (b) establishes the policy for manning levels of Marine Corps units, according to precedence levels Excepted, Operating Forces, Priority and Pro-Share.  Per ref (g), CMC outlined guidance directing a 1-percent reduction in enlisted manning levels concurrent with the implementation of Marine Corps Force (MCF) 2025 and stabilization of future force levels. The enlisted manning precedence levels for Operating Forces, Priority, and Pro-Share are 96-, 94-, and 93-percent, respectively.
3.  CMC approved changes to the Reserve Component (RC) with the implementation of Reserve Force (RF) 2025.  The standing Doctrine, Organization, Training and Education, Materiel, Leadership and Communication Synchronization, Personnel, Facilities, and Cost (DOTMLPF/C) Working Group (WG) will continue to assess the impacts of a 186.4k Force and RF2025 across the enterprise and recommend courses of action for optimization as needed.  Paragraphs 3.a through 3.f summarize the major CMC-approved Total Force structure changes since the previously published ASR.  Changes published in this ASR are scheduled to occur as early as FY19 through FY25.
3.a.  Command Element.  Changes to the Reserve Component (RC) include the following:  relocation of 6th ANGLICO to Joint Base Lewis-McChord, the activation of four Marine Corps Advisor Companies, the deactivation of 2nd Civil Affairs Group (CAG), the reduction of the remaining three CAGs by one-third each, the reorganization of 6th Communications Battalion, the activation of two Defensive Cyber Operations Companies, the reorganization of Intel Support Battalion, the activation of a Battlespace Surveillance Company, and finally, the reductions in Counter Intelligence/Human Intelligence capability.  Changes in Active Component (AC) include the following:  addition of 1702 PMOS Lieutenant billets at the MEF Information Groups, general refinements to the overall 1700 occupational field, and the establishment of a Military Information Support Operations Detachment within MARFORCOM.
3.b.  Aviation Combat Element.  In the AC, VMM-212 activation moved from FY19 to FY21.  Changes in the RC include the activation of 4th Low Altitude Air Defense Battery.
3.c.  Ground Combat Element.  Changes in the AC include the following:  reorganization of the Infantry Battalion including increasing the Rifle Squad size to 15, but manned and staffed at 12, deleting 3 Assistant Gunners from Weapons Platoon, and deleting scheduled Scout Sniper increases previously programmed under MCF 2025.  In the RC, changes include the following:  the deactivation of Company D, 4th Reconnaissance Battalion, the deactivation of 4th Force Reconnaissance Company, and the relocation and redesignation of Company E to Company A, 4th Reconnaissance Battalion.  To more closely mirror current and planned AC organization, the Infantry Battalions, Infantry Regiments, Light Armored Reconnaissance Companies, Combat Engineer Battalions, and Amphibious Combat Vehicle Companies were all reorganized.
3.d.  Logistics Combat Element.  In the RC, additional capacity was added to the Personnel Retrieval and Processing Company in Combat Logistics Regiment 45.  The 4th Marine Logistics Group reorganization implementation will be published in the February 2019 ASR.
3.e.  Supporting Establishment (SE).  Changes to the SE occurred only in the AC including the activation of Combat Instructor Battalion at The Basic School and Marine Force Storage Command including the activation of 1st and 2nd Marine Force Storage Battalions.  In support of the 186.4k Force build, Training Command received structure for additional instructors and support staff.
3.f.  Enterprise wide changes.  Effective in FY20 per MARADMIN 534/17, all 4531 PMOS billets convert to 4512, 4541, or 4571.
4.  Updated TOEs are available at the TFSMS website: https:(slash)(slash)tfsms.mceits.usmc.mil.  Users must request access by following the instructions on the TFSMS homepage under the section titled, “Request New or Reactivation of Account.”
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 FY TOE resident in TFSMS.  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 “Reports" link, then “TFSMS Cognos Reports Portal.”  A unit's TOE is located in the "Standard Reports (Published, structure data current as of last ASR)" folder.  After entering the folder, click on "Unit TOE Report" and select the applicable FY and Unit Identification Code (UIC).  User must enable compatibility view settings for usmc.mil to select criteria for TOE report.
5.b.  Structured units can also run a current FY TOE report after log-in by entering all or part of UIC, unit name, Monitored Command Code or Reporting Unit Code in the "Run TOE Report" and clicking "Show" to display the unit's current TOE.
6.  Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) Manual changes, per ref (c), which involve significant MOS conversions, consolidations and 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 8.i below) for a determination regarding whether the initiative will require subsequent DOTMLPF/C review.  Based on the timeline included in refs (c) and (h), initiatives of this type must be presented to the DOTMLPF/C WG for review and assessment no later than 9 May 2019 in order to be considered for the FY21 MOS Manual.
7.  Tables of Organization and Equipment Change Requests (TOECR) Policy.
7.a.  Marine Corps military manpower TOECRs.  Submission of all TOECRs impacting military manpower will be suspended effective 19 September 2018, and all pending military manpower TOECRs will be deleted in order to support a CMC-directed grade structure review to be led by DC CDI and DC MRA.  Request all commands refrain from working on pending military TOECRs from now through the duration of the review in order to avoid loss of work. Completion of the review, and input of appropriate billet grade changes within TFSMS, anticipated for October 2018, will be announced via SEPCOR.  At that time, submission of TOECRs may resume without restriction, subject to the policies and procedures set forth by ref (a) and with strict adherence to the following:
7.a.1.  Marine Corps military manpower TOECRs must be favorably endorsed by the appropriate DC or MARFOR commander.
7.a.2.  Per ref (a), all TOECRs that change grade and MOS will be programmed to occur three years after the current fiscal year (FY21).  Changes inside this window have the potential to adversely impact the MCF 2025 build, manpower plans, and associated formal school training planning factors and readiness reporting.
7.a.3.  UICs established, re-designated or reorganized by MCF 2025, shall not be changed by TOECR until Full Operational Capability (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.
7a.4.  Per ref (j), DC CDI has chartered a General Officer Force Optimization Review Group (GO FORG) that will screen and evaluate major unit force structure changes involving Service level adjustments within existing end strength that deviate from the current CMC-approved Force Structure baseline.  Re-phasing and/or other modifications intended to optimize the implementation of an MCF 2025 initiative must be properly vetted by GO FORG.
7.a.5.  Once TFSMS is reopened for military manpower TOECRs post grade structure review, all military manpower TOECRs must be received by TFSD NLT 1 December 2018 in order to be considered for the February 2019 ASR.  TOECRs that do not explicitly meet the conditions listed above will be returned without action.
7.b  Per  ref (a), Advocates are responsible for review and update of UIC mission statements not to exceed 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.
