CFB Ba­got­ville now have his De­pu­ty Com­man­der

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - LE MOT DU COMMANDANT -

A ma­jor reor­ga­ni­za­tion of the com­mand struc­ture of the Ba­got­ville Ca­na­dian Forces Base be­gun on No­vem­ber 1st.

The changes may not be ob­vious at first glance, but they de­fi­ne­te­ly are ma­jor changes that will af­fect Ad­mi­nis­tra­tion, Lo­gis­tics and Ope­ra­tions.

The pur­pose of this re­form is to conso­li­date the en­tire ma­na­ge­ment of the Ba­got­ville base as a place where va­rious units of the Ca­na­dian Ar­med Forces such as 3 Wing, 2 Wing and the de­tach­ments of the Ca­na­dian Ar­med Forces ser­vices ( health, mi­li­ta­ry po­lice, den­tal, 10 EITA, etc.).

The most vi­sible ele­ment of the re­form concerns the names of the dif­ferent units concer­ned. As a re­sult, the lo­gis­tics di­vi­sion be­comes the Mis­sion Sup­port Squa­dron ( MSS), the Ope­ra­tions Di­vi­sion is now cal­led the Ope­ra­tions Sup­port Squa­dron ( OSS), and the Ad­mi­nis­tra­tion Di­vi­sion is now in­te­gra­ted with CFB Ba­got­ville and is the res­pon­si­bi­li­ty of the De­pu­ty Base Com­man­der.

The head of ad­mi­nis­tra­tion is now the de­pu­ty com­man­der of CFB Ba­got­ville, whom is res­pon­sible for the day- to­day ma­na­ge­ment of the Base.

In or­der to cla­ri­fy the chain of com­mand, some units change units. The food di­vi­sion passes un­der the res­pon­si­bi­li­ty of the MSS. For their part, the SIT group and the les­sons lear­ned sec­tion go to OSS. Fi­nal­ly, the Base's Fi­nance Con­trol­ler's Of­fice, the En­vi­ron­men­tal Of­fice and the Base Se­cu­ri­ty Of­fice are trans­fer­red to the res­pon­si­bi­li­ty of the De­pu­ty Com­man­der.

Thus, all units with a pri­ma­ri­ly do­mes­tic role are now grou­ped un­der the res­pon­si­bi­li­ty of the De­pu­ty Com­man­der. Units that have a more ope­ra­tio­nal role or that can be de­ployed ac­cor­ding to the mis­sions as­si­gned to the wings have been in­te­gra­ted in­to the chain of com­mand of the MSS and OSS.
