DMs fill billets in drafting or graphic shops on ships and shore locations.
The mission of the command and the shop varies from billet to billet. Some
shops stand alone and produce products from beginning to end. Other shops
interface with a Photo Lab or Printshop to complete the products. It is
important for you to understand the commitments and agreements of the shop
to administer, manage, and supervise the shop efficiently.
Local commitments are interfaces with other shops, such as a Photo Lab or a
Printshop. Maintain a good rapport with these support shops. Provide them
with creditable service and your shop will receive the same.
In addition to and external to the command, Navy drafting shops have
obligations and responsibilities defined by instruction and practice. Know the
commitments of the shop to provide support to units external to your
command. These commitments exist in the form of Interservice Support
Agreements (ISA), Joint Interservice Regional Support Group (JIRSG),
Memorandums of Understanding (MOU), and Memorandums of Agreement
(MOA). Agreements between units typically define reoccurring services and
the basis for financial reimbursement. Although you need not know the
intricacies involved in establishing agreements between units, you must know
if your shop has such commitments, the extent of the obligation, and the
format for finding. These factors can determine how your shop orders
supplies and schedules work loads.
