and then grouped by personnel complement for consistency. Non-standard workstations,
individually approved by Commandant (G-T), are not affected by these adjustments.
This methodology establishes relative consistency, but does not adequately address
some unique unit-level requirements. Unit may add to their authorized MAL as
indicated, if any of the following situations apply. Microcomputers added to aq unit's
MAL in accordance with these instructionss must be reported in writing to Commandant
Geographic Isolation/Campus Environments: Units operating in distributed
environments may not have a sufficient number of master workstations/servers
authorized in the MAL to accommodate their unique configurations. These units
are authorized to establish the minimum number of master workstation/servers
per building to support distributed CGSW clusters using a ratio of one master
workstation/server per 24 standard workstations.
Collocated Units: Where units are collocated, duplication of services is
permitted only if centralized system support is not economically feasible. In all
other cases, the senior Command will determinate which unit will host the
master workstation/servers for all the subordinate units. The remaining units will
not maintain master workstation/servers, except as noted in paragraph 4.j.1.
SAR Stations which stand up seasonal SARDETS are authorized to increase
their microcomputer allowance by one master workstation/server are not more
than two standard workstations.
Enclosure (1) contains criteria for developing microcomputer allowances. Enclosure (2)
contains procedures to maintain and update the MAL. Each unit's microcomputer
allowance is a ceiling, not a base and is designed to meeet current requirements for that
particular unit. Enclosure (3) is the approved Microcomputer Allowance List.
Commandant (G-T) will:
Promulgate, as required, instructions amplifying the policies contained in this
directive, including but not limited to, the prioritization and aquisition of
through AC&E projects, from
