GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. Purpose. This MARADMIN announces the establishment of PMOS 1164 and the associated out-of-cycle updates to reference (a) necessary to meet the required actions contained in reference (b).
2. Per reference (b), a Doctrine, Organization, Training / Education, Materiel, Leadership / Synchronization, Personnel, Facilities, & Cost Working Group (doctrine, organization, training, material, leadership and education, personnel, and facilities (DOTMLPF) / C Wage Grade) assessment was conducted on 26 April 2023 to merge the existing PMOS 1142 (Engineer Equipment Electrical Systems Technician) with PMOS 1161 (Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Technician) to create the Utilities Systems Technician PMOS 1164. Based on the DOTMLPF / C WG assessment this initiative has been found supportable with low risk. As part of follow-on actions to reference (b) and in coordination with Manpower & Reserve Affairs, Training and Education Command (TECOM), and Total Force Structure Division (TFSD), the below changes will represent an out-of-cycle update to the Fiscal Year 24 MOS Manual. The below changes were reviewed by the POT WG pillars in accordance with reference (c) and all pillars recommended that Commanding General TECOM include the below changes in ref (a).
3. MOSs 1142 and 1161 are modified in reference (a) to include the following language in the summary paragraph of each: THIS IS AN OBSOLETE MOS, NO LONGER IN USE IN THE TABLE OF ORGANIZATION OF THE MARINE CORPS.
