the BCE from establishing a memorandum of agreement (MOA) to have operators perform minor
maintenance within their capabilities.
220.127.116.11. FMF is responsible for draining roof drains and interior dike basins.
1.2.2. BCE Responsibilities. BCE maintains, repairs, and constructs real property, including
petroleum storage and dispensing systems. Administrative requirements in Air Force Instruction
(AFI) 32-1001, Operations Management, apply to this manual. Additionally, the BCE:
18.104.22.168. Maintains a complete and current file of as-built system drawings, detailed master plans,
master-certified tank calibration charts, and military and commercial publications that apply to the
22.214.171.124. Keeps fire protection facilities in a constant state of readiness according to Air Force
Occupational Safety and Health (AFOSH) Standard 91-56, Fire Protection and Prevention.
Training, inspection, maintenance, and repair of fire protection facilities and equipment, including
fixed suppression systems, fire extinguishers, blankets, and signs, are the responsibility of the base
126.96.36.199. Develops and submits project documentation (DD Form 1391, Military Construction
Project Data) to the MAJCOM for transmittal (either directly or through the commander) to the
Defense Energy Support Center (DESC). DESC is responsible for funding military construction
(MILCON), maintenance, repair, and environmental (MRE) contract projects, and replacing
equipment items relating to petroleum, oil, and lubricants (POL) systems within their area of
responsibility. Recurring maintenance is not typically funded; however, in certain instances funds
will be provided where poor fuel quality has caused equipment failure (see Attachment 5).
188.8.131.52. Designs contract projects for fueling systems primarily using architect-engineer (A-E)
services. Because there are few engineers (in-house or A-E) experienced in designing fuel
systems, bases must consult with the command fuels engineer before starting a project to verify
that the proposed approach is feasible. There are many open-end A-E design and design-build
contracts available with firms that specialize in DoD fueling systems. Contact the MAJCOM fuels
engineer or the Air Force Civil Engineer Support Agency (AFCESA) for assistance.
1.2.3. LFM Responsibilities. The LFM shop has primary responsibility for maintaining and
repairing facilities. Routine maintenance is covered in Chapter 10. The LFM shop should:
184.108.40.206. Conduct quality assurance inspections. LFM is responsible for all inspections, repairs,
periodic maintenance, and modifications to petroleum systems under its jurisdiction, including
inspection of work done by other BCE shops and by contractors. In dealing with contractors, it is
not intended that LFM personnel replace the Air Force Contract Management Office (AFCMO);
rather, they should be thoroughly aware of the project scope of work by reviewing project
documents during the design phase, periodically observing contractor actions in the presence of the
inspector, and participating in the final inspection. Contract discrepancies should be brought to the
attention of the contract officer. Care must be exercised to avoid obligating the government either
through perceived changes to the contract or delays to the contractor.
220.127.116.11. Aid engineering and FMF in preparing and maintaining flow diagrams and schematics for
all systems, and developing the sequence of operations for the systems.
18.104.22.168. Ensure that as-built drawings are current and include changes made to the system either
by contract or in-house.
