1. THIS IS A FOLLOW-ON TO REF A, AS PROMISED. REF A ANNOUNCED THE
NONAPPROPRIATED FUND (NAF) MWR DISTRIBUTION TRANSITION PLAN FOR NAF
FISCAL YEAR 2004. DISTRIBUTIONS BASED ON THIS PLAN HAVE ALREADY
BEEN PROVIDED FOR THE FIRST AND SECOND QUARTERS OF NAF FISCAL YEAR
2004 TO THOSE COMMANDS SUPPORTED DIRECTLY BY COMDT (G-WPX).
2. WE HAVE BEEN LIVING WITH A MWR DISTRIBUTION PROCESS NOT
CONNECTED TO CURRENT REALITY THAT HAS RESULTED IN COAST GUARD
EXCHANGE SYSTEM (CGES) DISTRIBUTIONS TO MWR THAT HAVE FAR EXCEEDED
ANNUAL SYSTEM PROFITS. WE CANNOT CONTINUE TO DO THIS. WE WILL NO
LONGER MAKE MWR DISTRIBUTIONS FROM CGES IN EXCESS OF ANNUAL
PROFITS. FOR NAF FY 2005, THIS MAY RESULT IN A SIGNIFICANT
REDUCTION (POTENTIALLY AS MUCH AS 45 PERCENT OR MORE) IN MWR
DISTRIBUTIONS SERVICE-WIDE. THE DISTRIBUTION CHANGE PRESCRIBED BY
THIS ALCOAST SPREADS THE REDUCTION AS EQUITABLY AS POSSIBLE.
3. CGES PROFIT DISTRIBUTIONS REPRESENT LESS THAN EIGHT PERCENT OF
FUNDING FOR OUR MWR PROGRAMS. WHILE IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT THIS
REVENUE SOURCE ALLOWS US TO FUND MWR ACTIVITIES NOT AUTHORIZED
APPROPRIATED FUND SUPPORT, THE MAJORITY OF MWR PROGRAM SUPPORT,
OVER 92 PERCENT, COMES FROM APPROPRIATED FUNDS AND REVENUES
GENERATED WITHIN MWR PROGRAMS. THESE TWO SOURCES HAVE THE GREATEST
IMPACT ON OUR MWR PROGRAMS. COMMANDS ARE ENCOURAGED TO MAXIMIZE USE
OF APPROPRIATED FUNDS FOR THEIR MWR PROGRAMS WHEN AUTHORIZED, WHICH
IS 100 PERCENT FOR CATEGORY A ACTIVITIES. COMMANDS OPERATING
REVENUE GENERATING MWR PROGRAMS MUST ENSURE THE FINANCIAL VIABILITY
OF THESE PROGRAMS. AT A MINIMUM COMMANDS MUST BE SURE THAT ALL
CATEGORY C MWR ACTIVITIES ARE AT LEAST BREAKING EVEN. FURTHER
GUIDANCE CAN BE FOUND IN REF B.
4. THIS IS THE NEW DISTRIBUTION METHODOLOGY FOR NAF FISCAL YEAR
2005 WHICH BEGINS FEBRUARY 1, 2005. THE FOLLOWING UNITS WILL BE
DISTRIBUTED 35 PERCENT OF THE NAF YEAR 2004 ANNUAL AVAILABLE PROFIT
FROM THEIR TENANT CGES ACTIVITY: TRACEN CAPE MAY, TRACEN PETALUMA,
TRACEN YORKTOWN, CGA, AND CG YARD. THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE
REMAINING CGES AVAILABLE PROFIT, LESS CGES CONSTRUCTION FUND
DISTRIBUTION AND CENTRAL MWR NAF BILLS, WILL BE BASED ON A STRAIGHT
PER CAPITA OF ACTIVE DUTY BILLETS ON THE PERSONNEL ALLOWANCE LIST
(PAL). AS AN ADMINISTRATIVE MATTER, ALL PER CAPITA DISTRIBUTIONS
WILL BE THROUGH THE APPROPRIATE ISC. OUR ULTIMATE GOAL IS TO MOVE
TO A STRAIGHT PER CAPITA METHODOLOGY SERVICE-WIDE, WHICH WILL BE
ACHIEVED VIA THE TRUST FUND BOARD OF CONTROL ANNUAL NAF BUDGET
APPROVAL PROCESS.
5. OTHER CHANGES AS ANNOUNCED IN REF A HAVE ALLOWED CGES TO REDUCE
ITS PERCENTAGE OF NET PROFIT RETAINED FROM 25 PERCENT TO 10 PERCENT
THUS INCREASING THE AMOUNT OF AVAILABLE PROFIT FOR MWR
DISTRIBUTION.
6. THIS NEW METHODOLOGY WILL BE INCORPORATED INTO THE UPCOMING
CHANGE TO REF B.
7. FURTHER INFORMATION REGARDING THESE CHANGES MAY BE ADDRESSED TO
MR. GARY SCHEER AT (757) 420-2480, EXT. 3035.
