(Remember, this is for GPETE, not SPETE.) The result
is a listing of GPETE excesses and deficiencies.
Specifying Excesses and Deficiencies
Excess means that the GPETE is not authorized in
the SPETERL (or by an approved ACR) and should not
be on board. TYCOMs are very explicit about what
should be done with excess GPETE. GPETE in excess
of the SPETERL or an approved ACR cannot be held on
board and must be turned in to the NAVELEX GPETE
Assets Screening Program (GASP). (Procedures are
listed in the TYCOM maintenance manual. )
Remember, test equipment is usually at a premium; so
if an item is excess, turn it in so that another command
deficient in that item can obtain it.
Now lets tackle the GPETE deficiency (shortage)
problem. Deficiencies may fall into any one of the
following three types:
Deficiency caused by new or increased
allowances New or increased allowances of
cognizance symbol 7Z GPETE equipments are
not to be requisitioned by the requiring activity.
These requirements will be determined,
budgeted, and automatically shipped to the
designated end users as equipments become
available. If you have such a deficiency, you
should anticipate delayed delivery on certain
equipment in critically short supply.
Deficiency caused by missing or unserviceable
equipment If an allowance item of GPETE is
missing or unserviceable, you must prepare a
Report of Survey (DD Form 200). Submit a DD
Form 1348 (supply requisition) to supply for a
replacement item. This requisition will then be
forwarded to SPCC, Mechanicsburg, for action.
Deficiency caused by obsolete equipment If
you have items designated as obsolete
equipment, do not requisition replacements for
them. Replacements will be handled the same
way as items described earlier in Deficiency
caused by new or increased allowances.
There are two methods for obtaining needed
GPETE. The first is by either receiving or ordering the
items through the supply system. The second is by
requesting them through the fleets GPETE Assets
Screening Program (GASP). Both are discussed briefly
Issue Through Supply
You may obtain GPETE through the supply system by
determining for each deficiency, by SCAT, the NSN of the
GPETE. Then base your next actions on the situation listed
below that pertains to your required equipment.
If the Cog is 7 and the item is a new requirement
or an increase to allowance, it is a GPETE Initial
Outfitting (GINO) item. No action is required by
your ship for these GINO, 7Z cog items, as they
will be pushed through the supply system to you.
If the Cog is 7Z and this is a replacement for
another item of GPETE that is or once was on
board, it is classified as GPETE End-Item
Replacement (GEIR). You must requisition
GIER, 7Z cog items through supply on a DD
Form 1348. To replace SCAT items that are
GEIR, select the preferred models of GPETE as
listed in the latest Test Equipment Index or
If you need other odd cog items, you must
requisition them. If you are replacing items
previously on board, your ships OPTAR funds
will be charged. If your ship is in overhaul and
