The NAVINSGEN exercises broad supervision, general  guidance,  and  coordination  for  all  DON inspection, evaluation, and appraisal organizations to minimize duplication of efforts and the number of inspections. NAVINSGEN has unrestricted access, by any means, to any information maintained by any naval activity, unless specifically restricted by SECNAV. THE BOARD OF INSPECTION AND SURVEY The Board of Inspection and Survey (INSURV) was established to advise SECNAV in matters concerning the acceptance of newly commissioned ships and the suitability of active fleet units for further service. Additionally, the board has been tasked with keeping the CNO informed of the material condition of the operating forces. That is done through appropriately scheduled ship inspections. The president of the Board of Inspection and Survey is assisted by such officers and such permanent and semipermanent boards as may be designated by the Secretary of the Navy. The president performs the following  functions: Conducts acceptance trials and inspections of all ships and service craft before their acceptance for naval service Conducts acceptance trials and inspections of one or more aircraft of each type or model before final acceptance for naval service Examines at least once every 3 years, if practicable, each naval ship to determine its material condition; if found unfit for continued service, reports it to higher authority Performs such other inspections and trials of naval ships service craft and aircraft as may be directed by the CNO THE NAVAL COMMAND INSPECTION PROGRAM The purpose of the Naval Command Inspection Program is to conduct periodic inspections of subordinate commands. The program ensures the readiness, effectiveness, and efficiency of commands and units. It also assesses the quantity, quality, and management of resources available to commands to perform their assigned missions. RESPONSIBILITY FOR CONDUCTING INSPECTIONS The immediate superior in command (ISIC) or the immediate unit commander (IUC) is responsible for conducting the inspections. When both administrative and  operational  commanders  are  involved,  the administrative ISIC or IUC is responsible for the inspections. Immediate Superior in Command The immediate superior in command (ISIC) serves as the immediate unit commander of commissioned ships, aircraft squadrons, and designated fleet staffs subordinate to type commanders. Fleet commanders in chief (FLTCINCs) determine which commanders below type commander level will be designated as immediate unit  commanders  (ship  group  commanders;  ship squadron  commanders;  ship  development  groups; numbered fleet air wings; functional air wings; and construction brigades, battalions, and regiments). Immediate Unit Commander An immediate unit commander (IUC) is the next senior officer to the ship or aircraft squadron commanding officer in the operational or administrative chain of command. Normally, the IUC is the reporting senior of the ship or aircraft squadron commanding officer or staff commander. However, extended operational assignments may require the temporary operational immediate superior to perform the role of the IUC. Use of Personnel as Inspectors Inspecting commands normally use personnel within local commands or local areas to conduct inspections. ISICs and IUCs can only request the minimum number of people actually required for out-of-area manpower to conduct inspections. When  out-of-area  personnel  are  required  for specific inspections, the inspecting command submits the request to the appropriate bureau, command, office, or agency. The NAVINSGEN coordinates and resolves any conflicts in schedule or in the allocation of out-of-area manpower requested by an ISIC or IUC. As prescribed by FLTCINCs, IUCs may selectively use personnel  from  “sister”  units  (ships  and  aircraft squadrons) as inspectors. 7-2
