The purpose of the OPNAVINST 5290.1, Naval Imaging program
(NAVIMP) Policy and Responsibilities, is to establish a centralized visual
imagery activity to supply the regional fleet with audiovisual products. This
centralized shop would function more economically than a cluster of
independent shops and assume accountability and responsibility for all
audiovisual and visual information products.
Approved VI activities have a five-digit authorization number for finding and
billeting. This number, called a DVIAN number, identifies major commands
and individual activities of the VI community.
This instruction requires each shop to submit a visual information report
annually. The visual information (VI) report accounts and justifies funding
and billet assignments.
Study this instruction in its entirety. Definitions of production guidelines and
report requirements must be thoroughly understood before you submit the
myriad of forms associated with it.
