One of the most important aspect of an organization
is a well organized and properly maintained filing
system. This can only be achieved with competent AKs
who understand and are familiar with the Navy files in
general. Constant personnel and manning changes
emphasize the need for a standardized classification
system. The process for segregating and filing Navy and
Marine Corps records and the single standard system of
numbers, letters, or symbols used throughout the DON
for categorizing and subject classifying are outlined in
SECNAVINST 5210.11. The Navys Standard Subject
Identification Code (SSIC) is a four- or five-digit
number that stands for the subject of the document. The
Navys SSIC system is broken down into 13 subject
groups. These major subject groups are then broken
down into primary, secondary, and tertiary subdivisions.
For example, here are the subdivisions under general
administration and management, whose major subject
group is 5000. General categories use zeros.
5000 General Administration and Management.
This is an example of primary subject.
Management Programs and Techniques.
The last two digits designate secondary subjects.
5210 Records Management.
The last digit reflects a tertiary subject.
Filing, Maintenance, Protection, Retrieval,
and Privacy Act Systems.
The SSIC groups common to the AK work operations
are as follows:
4000 Series Logistics
7000 Series Financial Management
10000 Series General Material
13000 Series Aeronautical Material
SECURITY OF SUPPLY

afloat and ashore are the same. The supervisors are

command security education. all hands are responsible
for ensuring that security is maintained at all times. This
