Numbered Fleet Commanders will add the following guidance to reference
(a) paragraph 5.g.
a. Contracting Officer Representatives (COR) on HSP contracts
will support deployed units including USS and USNS Government-
/Government-Operated MSC vessels and specific homeport services
contracts. HSP CORs will not be assigned to or conduct
on non-HSP contracts.

preparing for port visits (PVST) through effective communication
coordination among stakeholders.
c. Identify conditions and locations whereby CORs provide
onsite PVST support. At a minimum, CORs will be onsite for:

significant logistics challenges

approved standard Logistics Requests (LOGREQs) require deviation
approval. At a minimum, Numbered Fleet N4s will approve or
disapprove requests for deviations. Individual or aggregate

tripwires listed below, require coordination with the associated
Type Commander to ensure adequate funding is available:

requests and associated actions.

standardized LOGREQs quarterly.

reinforce training with operational units. Reference (b) is
available on the HSPortal system.
