GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. Situation. This is a Headquarters Marine Corps Installations and Logistics (I&L), Logistics Division (LP) message articulating the equipping responsibilities for Class II Individual Combat Clothing and Equipment (ICCE). For the purposes of this message, the term ICCE is inclusive of all individual Class II clothing and equipment issued to individuals in order to complete their assigned mission and Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) individual issue equipment (e.g. field protective mask and carrier).
2. Mission. Provide interim policy for the support of individuals in an Individual Augment (IA), Permanent Change of Station (PCS), or Global Force Management (GFM) status with ICCE in order to clearly define Fleet Marine Force and Supporting Establishment roles and responsibilities.
3.a. Commander's Intent. Improve and standardize the issuance, recovery, and reimbursement funding responsibilities of ICCE items.
3.a.1. Concept of Operations. This Marine Administrative (MARADMIN) message is directive in nature and will ensure personnel have all ICCE items required for the specific theater of operations they are supporting or assigned to as determined by the Geographic Combatant Commander (GCC). Adherence to this policy will mitigate risk and minimize the negative effects of personnel executing orders and arriving in the theater of operations without the required ICCE items. The following table delineates supported/supporting relationships for personnel requiring ICCE (read in two columns):
Supported category ICCE supporting command
Individual Augment (IA) Losing/Parent Command (Note 1)
Execution of PCS orders (PCS) Gaining Command
Reserve Mobilization Internal/Enterprise (Note 2)
Civil Authorities, Joint
Forces, Multinational Forces Determined by DC I&L, LP, LPS-1
*Note 1: M&RA provides oversight and management for all Individual Augmentation taskings and sourcing. Order writing instructions are provided by MMIB-2 and can be reached for clarification on losing/parent command assignment.
*Note 2: Individuals, composite formations, or units mobilized in support of Global Force Management requirements will receive ICCE support as coordinated during the quarterly Force Synchronization Conferences and only after they have exhausted all internal sourcing mechanisms.
3.a.2. Under each of the supported categories listed in paragraph
3.a.1. above, the supporting command will either be a participant in the Consolidated Storage Program (CSP) (i.e. a member) or a non-participating entity (i.e. a non-member). As such, the remainder of this message provides guidance for each supported category under both CSP membership constructs.
3.b.1. CSP Member Commands.
3.b.1.a. Individual Augments (IA).
3.b.1.a.1. Losing commands of IA’s are responsible for ensuring their deploying personnel have all required ICCE items prior to executing their orders and arriving in the theater of operations.
3.b.1.a.2. If losing commands are unable to source the required ICCE items from their supporting CSP facility, they shall coordinate with DC I&L, LP, LPS-1, to arrange ICCE support from a designated CSP facility. Once the enterprise identifies a CSP facility to fulfill the ICCE deficiency, the losing command shall reimburse, at replacement cost, the CSP supporting MARFOR/MEF to facilitate replenishment of ICCE stocks at that facility.
3.b.2. Non-CSP Member Commands.
3.b.2.a. Individual Augments (IA).
3.b.2.a.1. Losing commands of IA’S are responsible for ensuring their personnel have all required ICCE items prior to executing their orders and arriving in the theater of operations. If a losing command (i.e. HQMC, MARFOREUR/AF, MARFORSOUTH, Marine Security Forces, etc.) requires ICCE items beyond what is organically supportable, they will coordinate with DC I&L, LP, LPS-1 to arrange ICCE support from a designated CSP facility.
3.b.2.a.2. ICCE items drawn from CSP facilities to support IA’S will be returned to the CSP facility from which they were drawn at the conclusion of the deployment.
3.b.2.a.3. The losing command shall reimburse, at replacement cost, the CSP supporting MARFOR/MEF to replace any lost, damaged, or unserviceable ICCE items once the IA returns.
3.b.2.b. Personnel Executing PCS Orders.
3.b.2.b.1. If a gaining command (i.e. MARFOREUR/AF, MARFORSOUTH, Marine Security Forces, etc.) requires ICCE items beyond what is organically supportable, they shall coordinate with DC I&L, LP, LPS-1 to arrange ICCE support from a designated CSP facility.
3.b.2.b.2. Only ICCE items that the supported/gaining command has an Approved Acquisition Objective (AAO) for will be requested. If the supported/gaining command does not have an AAO for ICCE items and the supported/gaining commander deems this ICCE support necessary, the supported/gaining command will request guidance from the POCs listed above.
3.b.2.b.3. Personnel that execute PCS orders to non-Marine Corps units (i.e. North Atlantic Treaty Organization, United Nations, Joint Duty, and United States Military Training Missions, etc.) and who require ICCE items, will be supported by the regional MARFOR (i.e. MARFOREUR/AF, MARCENT, etc.). If the ICCE requirement exceeds what is organically supportable, the regional MARFOR will coordinate with DC I&L, LP, LPS-1, to arrange ICCE support from a designated CSP facility.
3.b.2.b.4. If the supported/gaining command arranges for the personnel executing PCS orders to draw ICCE items from a CSP facility, the supported/gaining command shall reimburse, at replacement cost, the CSP supporting MARFOR/MEF after the required ICCE items have been drawn and prior to the personnel executing PCS orders.
3.b.2.b.5. The supported/gaining command will ensure that all ICCE items are properly accounted for in an approved Accountable Property System of Record (APSR) (e.g. GCSS-MC or DPAS-WM).
3.b.2.b.6. Upon conclusion of the PCS orders and prior to executing follow-on PCS/retirement orders, personnel will return all ICCE items to the regional MARFOR (i.e. MARFOREUR/AF, MARCENT, etc.) for accountability and, if required, adjudication of DD200’s.
3.b.2.c. Marine Forces Reserve (MFR).
3.b.2.c.1. Reserve personnel will draw all required ICCE items from the supporting Home Training Center (HTC).
3.b.2.c.2. In the event that an activated reservist does not have a supporting HTC, MFR is authorized, with prior coordination between the regional Deployment Processing Center (DPC) and appropriate MARFOR/MEF supported by a CSP facility to arrange ICCE support.
3.b.2.c.3. In the event the supporting HTC does not possess the required ICCE items, the HTC will identify the equipment shortfalls through the chain of command for appropriate sourcing actions.
3.b.2.c.4. If MFR is unable to internally provide the required ICCE items, ICCE requirements and support plans will be coordinated and confirmed during the quarterly Force Synchronization Conferences and these requirements and support plans will be captured in Marine Corps Bulletin (MCBUL) 3120, Annex D IOT ensure appropriate sourcing.
3.b.2.c.5. Reserve personnel are authorized, with prior approval IAW paragraph 3.b.2.c.3., to draw ICCE items from the local CSP facility where Intermediate Location (ILOC) training is being conducted.
3.b.2.c.6. ICCE items drawn from CSP facilities in support of reserve Marines/composite formations/units activated in support of GFM missions will not be retained and will be returned to the CSP from where it was drawn at the conclusion of the mobilization during Reverse ILOC (RILOC). Demobilization/deactivation will not be allowed until all ICCE items are returned and DD200’s are completed.
3.b.2.c.7. MFR shall reimburse, at replacement cost, the CSP supporting MARFOR/MEF to replace all ICCE items lost or damaged by reserve Marines/composite formations/units activated in support of GFM missions.
3.b.2.c.8. In accordance with reference A, establish or revise current procedures to ensure proper accountability, storage, and inventory levels for all ICCE items used by reserve Marines/ composite formations/units regardless of size.
3.b.2.c.9. On a quarterly basis, provide the above mentioned POCs, via formal message an updated listing of MFR ICCE shortfalls. Format will be provided via separate correspondence.
3.b.2.d. Civil Authorities, Joint Forces, and Multinational Forces.
3.b.2.d.1. CA, JF, and MN forces requiring ICCE support will coordinate with DC I&L, LP, LPS-1, to arrange ICCE support from a designated CSP facility.
3.b.3. Deputy Commandant Manpower & Reserve Affairs.
3.b.3.a. For personnel executing PCS to theaters of operation with mandated ICCE requirements, validate the list of required ICCE items with the gaining command and include it in the PCS orders.
3.b.3.b. Ensure personnel executing TAD orders to theaters of operation with mandated ICCE requirements are notified of required ICCE items.
3.b.3.c. Inform DC I&L (LP) of the anticipated ICCE requirements for mass IRR activations and anticipated force flow timeline for these activations.
3.c. Coordinating Instructions.
3.c.1. A Commanding General of a MARFOR/SE that is not currently supported by the CSP is authorized to maintain ICCE to support their operations. Additionally, they are authorized to utilize new or existing support contracts to assist in the management of their ICCE until the CSP is expanded.
3.c.2. MARFOR’S after coordination at the quarterly Force Synchronization Conferences, may be directed via quarterly updates to MCBUL 3120, ANNEX D, to provide CSP support to commands not included in the CSP.
3.c.3. Accountability for all ICCE items will be maintained in accordance with current policy and procedures (i.e. custody records, Warehouse Inventory System, IMRS, outstanding returnable receipts from Individual Issue Facilities, CMRs, etc.).
3.c.4. This MARADMIN does not relieve individual personnel of the responsibility to maintain accountability and serviceability of their ICCE items.
3.c.5. During personal effects inventories, personal effects custodians will validate ownership of ICCE items and ensure all ICCE items are returned to either the original issuing CSP facility or the owning unit supply section.
3.c.6. Reimbursement funding provided by a supported/gaining MARFOR/Command to a supporting MARFOR/MEF to replace any lost, damaged, or unserviceable ICCE items will be used to restock the original issuing CSP facility.
3.c.7. Reimbursement funding for CBRN equipment will only be provided for lost or negligently damaged items. Normal wear and tear will continue to be centrally funded in accordance with current policy and procedures.
3.c.8. DC I&L will coordinate a semi-annual Class II Sustainment IPT to address enterprise wide concerns with the Marine Corps Class II sustainment and acquisition pipeline.
3.c.9. ICCE equipment is classified as minor personal property and is assigned a Table of Authorized Materiel Control Number (TAMCN). At no time, except in situations where a commander deems it necessary, will ICCE equipment Stock List (SL) component items be issued separately.
