B-2. USE OF THE MAINTENANCE ALLOCATION CHART
The Maintenance Allocation Chart assigns maintenance functions based on past experience and the
Tools and test equipment required and/or available.
The assigned levels of maintenance authorized to perform a maintenance function are indicated.
A maintenance function assigned to a lower maintenance level will automatically be authorized to be
performed at any higher maintenance level.
A maintenance function that cannot be performed at the assigned level of maintenance for any reason may
be evacuated to the next higher maintenance organization. Higher maintenance levels will perform the maintenance
functions of lower maintenance levels when required or directed by the appropriate commander.
The assignment of a maintenance function will not be construed as authorization to carry the associated
repair parts in stock. Information to requisition or otherwise secure the necessary repair parts will be as specified in the
Repair Parts and Special Tools List.
Normally there will be no deviation from the assigned level of maintenance. In cases of operational
necessity, maintenance functions assigned to a higher maintenance level may on a one-time basis and at the request of
the lower maintenance level, be specifically authorized by the maintenance officer of the higher level of maintenance to
which the function is assigned. The special tools, equipment, etc. required by the lower level of maintenance to perform
this function will be furnished by the maintenance level to which the function is assigned. This transfer of a maintenance
function to a lower maintenance level does not relieve the higher maintenance level of the responsibility of the function.
The higher level of maintenance will provide technical supervision and inspection of the function being performed at the
Maintenance of the U. S. Army Electronics Material Readiness Command equipment will be performed by
designated U. S. Army Electronics Command personnel.
Changes to the Maintenance Allocation Chart will be based on continuing evaluation and analysis by
responsible technical personnel and on reports received from field activities.
