material. In order to maintain a versatile workforce representing a cross section of marine
related trades, it is vital for the Coast Guard to identify and plan for future YARD workload.
The YARD maintains a five-year projection of future work in order to project activity levels. In
order for the YARD to operate in the most cost-effective manner, steady state workload must
remain at or near capacity. To achieve this workload to capacity balance requires an
organizational commitment to direct sufficient work to the YARD. Moreover, to manage
activity levels and ensure a viable workforce, the YARD must be aware of future projects that
could be accomplished either at the Curtis Bay facility, or by exportable work teams. This
document provides Team Coast Guard with guidance for YARD workload management for the
next five fiscal years.
6. POLICY. The following Coast Guard components shall take the appropriate action to ensure
YARD is included in planning for all projects with in the Coast Guard YARD's capabilities and
actively view the YARD as the primary logistics support provider. They shall be guided by the

a. The Assistant Commandants for Acquisitions and Operations (G-A, G-O) and their respective
staffs shall, upon receipt of tasking, or commencement of planning for new
projects/acquisitions/missions involving cutters, boats, or marine electronics systems, notify the
YARD, via Chief, Office of Naval Engineering (G-SEN), of new requirements. This
notification will serve as a reminder for the acquisition and operation directorate staffs to review
the YARD's capabilities in the development of acquisition strategies or issuing requirement
b. The Program Executive Officer (PEO) for the Deepwater Capabilities Project (G-D) shall work
closely with the Assistant Commandant for Systems (G-S) to identify Deepwater cutter

systems projects that fall within the YARD's capability.
Chief, Office of Civil Engineering (G-SEC) shall consider the YARD as a source of supply
for new buoy construction and notify the YARD, via G-SEN, of all other future projects
that fall within the YARD's capabilities.
Chief, Office of Naval Engineering (G-SEN) shall both advocate for and provide fiscal
oversight and quality assurance oversight of the YARD. Specifically, G-SEN shall:
