The provisions of this instruction pertain to the processes for developing, modifying, and managing TOAs and ABFCs authorized for the Navy Expeditionary Combat Command, naval beach groups, and similar expeditionary forces. The responsibilities assigned by this instruction are supportive of the responsibilities and authorities assigned to the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) in reference (a) for determining requirements and establishing the relative priority of those requirements.
a. To provide policy and assign responsibilities for the development, modification, and management of a unit's table of allowance (TOA); which is the list of systems, equipment, and material authorized for an expeditionary unit to conduct its assigned mission. The TOA serves as the basis for programming the future force, provides guidance for initial outfitting and recapitalization of the force, and establishes a baseline for reporting readiness.
b. To provide policy and assign responsibilities for the development, modification, and management of advanced base functional component (ABFC) systems. ABFCs are pre-planned, modular facility designs that provide a variety of functional capabilities to extend the commander's logistics infrastructure supporting naval expeditionary operations.
c. This instruction has been substantially revised and should be reviewed in its entirety.
