is the Navy's Casualty Report that provides commanders the status of all mission-critical parts that are on backorder.
Ship Repair Facility and Japan Regional Maintenance Center, Yokosuka, Japan (SRF--JRMC) via monthly COMNAVSURFPAC Drumbeat teleconferences, semiannual Sustainment Summits in Yokosuka and Singapore, INSURV preparations/inspections, and Fleet commander oversight and advocacy of high priority C-3/4 CASREP
material requisition expediting and forward stock positioning.
Regardless, both CASREP
avoidance and quick resolution are imperative for our ships to be combat ready.
Just this week we were able to support a MCM CASREP
from USNS LARAMIE.
One section, which stands out in my memory, developed and maintained a Casualty Reporting (CASREP
) system, which received CASREPs
from fleet units and fed valuable casualty and equipment failure data into SPCC, the Maintenance Support Office, and BUSHIPS.
During the past five years, the supply related set of indicators for surface mine force readiness trended poorly in reduced mission operational availability, increased CASREP
durations due to non-availability of parts, and over-reliance on part cannibalizations
At the nightly OPS/INTEL brief, I present slides that display the status of outstanding CASREP
part requisitions, complete with estimated shipping dates and dates of arrival.
To document the deficiency, Lake Champlain released a CASREP
in November 2008 discussing the combat system degradation and identifying the required repair part components.
In coordination with C7F, CTF 515, FISC, PACFLT and others, CFWP works everything from moving shipments of blood to expediting surface CASREP
parts for units actively engaged in Operation Enduring Freedom--Philippines.

Navy Sailors and Sailors of foreign Navies correct CASREPs
, complete maintenance, and perhaps most importantly, receive a long awaited package from their families.
Since 1996, approximately $440 million in OPTAR cost avoidance with over 8,200 CASREPs
averted or corrected as a result of CCA/EM repairs have been documented.
