SECTION 1 - COMMAND RESPONSIBILITIES
1-1-1. Command Mission and Functions. The mission and functions of Commander, Naval Computer and Telecommunications Command (COMNAVCOMTELCOM) are assigned by the Chief of Naval Operations in OPNAVINST 5450.227. The mission is to organize, train and equip our computer and telecommunications activities to provide quality information systems and services to the fleet, supporting commands and higher authority to manage, process, and transfer information for command, control, and administration of the Navy.
1-1-2. Subordinate Activities. NAVCOMTELCOM consists of the following subordinate echelon III commands:
a. Naval Computer and Telecommunications Area Master Stations (4)
b. Naval Computer and Telecommunications Stations (12)
c. Naval Communication Station (1)
1-1-3. Staff Doctrine
a. The Deputy Commander (N01) has general supervision over the staff personnel. Members of the immediate staff, assistant chiefs of staff, and those other key staff personnel designated in this instruction have the privilege of direct contact with the Commander. When direct contact with the Commander is necessary or required, N01 shall be informed at the earliest opportunity of official matters discussed or decisions made.
b. The following incumbents will obtain approval of N01 when desiring to be absent from the headquarters during normal working hours or for any extended periods, including leave and temporary additional duty:
(1) All principal members on the immediate staff of the Commander/Deputy Commander.
(2) All assistant chiefs of staff.
(3) Special Assistants.
c. Any action which involves disapproval of recommendations, commendation, censure, or in any way reflects upon performance, shall be released and signed by the Commander.
d. All members of the staff shall keep themselves informed of the policies of the Commander and shall, in their staff work, ensure that the policies, doctrines, and directives issued by the Commander are complied with fully.
e. To effect the polices and directives of COMNAVCOMTELCOM, staff members are authorized and directed to communicate laterally whenever cooperative action is appropriate.
f. As specifically authorized by the Commander, formal directives, correspondence, and messages originating in the headquarters are sent in the name of COMNAVCOMTELCOM, regardless of the official who signs or releases the communication.
g. Officials of the headquarters are responsible for execution of functions and the administration of details within their respective organizational components and for the decentralization of authority and responsibility among their subordinates. These subordinates derive their responsibilities and authority by assignment and delegation from COMNAVCOMTELCOM. Their relationship to the Commander is the same as that of staff officers afloat to the commander to whom they serve. In performing their assigned functions, they act for the Commander in his/her name, exercising the authority of the Commander's position.
h. Each official and/or functional element within the headquarters is assigned an alphanumeric office code. This system serves the purpose of a rapid and convenient reference for indexing, routing communication, and grouping related functional elements. The assigned designation of these offices is included in this manual, together with the formal organizational titles.
i. The headquarters is manned by naval civilian and military personnel. These personnel work side-by-side in a mixed organizational environment, each contributing the benefit of specialized skills and experience in the accomplishment of mission. Position management requirements place civilian and military personnel in both management and supervisory positions. For supervisory personnel, whether civilian or military, authority is equal in principle in the direction of subordinates regarding: planning and assigning work, scheduling leave, providing advice or consultation, recommending training, evaluating performance, and maintenance of discipline and morale. Because civilian and military personnel are regulated under separate administrative systems, there are differences in the execution of specific duties pertaining to these responsibilities. Each supervisor, civilian and military, must know and understand the requirements of both administrative systems and will execute specific responsibilities under the appropriate system within the boundaries of established regulatory policy.
1-1-4. Completed Staff Work
a. Completed staff work is integral to the efficient functioning of a large staff. The following guidelines are provided to assist the staff officer in preparing staff work. The most distinguishing characteristic of a successful staff officer is the ability to present completed staff work which requires only the signature of the Commander. The solution to staff problems and, therefore, the completed work is based on consideration of the following basic precepts:
(1) Know the Commander's policy.
(2) Remember that the Command's reputation is affected by the completed staff work.
(3) Consult other staff officers.
(4) Present a single and coordinated proposed action.
b. The procedure for solving staff problems varies according to the desires of the Commander. Routine matters governed by established policy normally go directly into final form for signature. When a staff study must be made in a field in which new policy or a modification of existing policy is indicated, the problem may be resolved by discussion at staff meetings.
c. The conclusions and recommendations of a staff study, particularly a complex one, may be rejected by the Commander simply because he/she has not been made aware of all the facets of the study. Therefore, when it is obvious that a study is delving into unfamiliar areas, it is proper to keep the Commander and senior staff abreast of new developments with periodic verbal or written briefings. These briefings should give all concerned an opportunity to follow developments and ensure the results of the study are sound.
1-1-5. Standards of Conduct
a. The Secretary of the Navy prescribes, through SECNAVINST 5370.2J, the standards of ethical conduct governing all DON personnel, dictating that naval personnel shall not engage in any personal, business, or professional activity, or receive or retain any direct or indirect financial interest, which places them in a position of conflict between their private and the public interests of the United States regarding the duties or responsibilities of their official positions.
b. As a means of monitoring and enforcing compliance with the standards of conduct, the Secretary of the Navy places specific requirements on naval personnel who, while encumbering certified categories of positions, are required, in carrying out official duties and responsibilities, to make decisions, influence decisions, or take final actions involving matters in which the final decision or action has a significant impact on non-Federal enterprises. Included as a specific requirement is the necessity to file, annually, a DD Form 1555, Confidential Statement of Affiliations and Financial Interests.
