NAVSUP transfers Navy FMTs to FISCs – News You Can Use – Brief Article

FISC SAN DIEGO–The Naval Supply Systems Command and the six Fleet and Industrial Supply Centers, located in Bremerton, Wash.; San Diego, Calif.; Norfolk, Va.; Jacksonville, Fla.; Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; and Yokosuka, Japan, signed memorandums of agreement earlier this month to organizationally transfer the Navy Food Management Team function to the FISCs.

Six of the seven NFMTs are now fully integrated into the Logistics Support Centers at each co-located FISC. The remaining NFMT in New London, Conn., was organizationally transferred to FISC Norfolk.

The decision to transfer this function was the result of the ongoing NAVSUP transformation process. By being aligned with the FISCs, the teams will provide better claimancy support and operational forces support while reducing overall costs and increasing efficiency.

The NFMTs are aligned functionally under NAVSUP’s Assistant Chief of Staff for Navy Family Support, but organizationally assigned to the FISCs for management.

NFMTs, based in fleet concentrated areas, service afloat and ashore commands. They significantly improve the overall Navy Food Service Program by providing on-the-job-training in proper food service techniques, including preparation, progressive cookery, food serving, sanitation, personal hygiene, and management/ operating procedures. The teams also offer food service personnel training in record keeping and accounting, and provide information on new food items and developments in food service.
