The Base Commander's lines of authority are separate and distinct from product and service line managers. The Base Commander provides command authority and broad, multi-discipline oversight of mission support within the region. The Base Commander provides a single touch point for Operational Commanders when coordinated mission support services are required. They provide command administration for all mission support people in the region, including evaluations, awards, public outreach, weigh-ins, labor/employee relations, security, and setting work hours, among others.
The Base Executive Officer takes over many of the command administrative duties previously performed by multiple XO's.
There is one silver badge Command Master Chief for all Base military members, rather than one for each unit/department.
