Public Works Department Management is an officer's textbook designed to introduce the CEC officer to the various functions of a Public Works Department. A primary objective of this book is for use, together with selected Bureau of Yards and Docks publications, in a correspondence course for CEC officers,
This text is intended as a broad, general introduction to the principal aspects of the management of a public Works Department. The CEC officer's duties and responsibilities in the field of management, as distinct from his technical duties and responsibilities, are given primary emphasis in Public Works Department Management. Chapter 3, in particular, deals almost entirely with management matters.
Public Works Department Management is not intended as a substitute for technical publications and instructions issued by the Bureau of Yards and Docks and other bureaus and offices which have responsibilities in public works matters. Public works programs are periodically revised and altered as a result of changed conditions, new legislation, or changed policies. It is essential, therefore, that personnel working in a Public Works Department have access to the latest directives and technical publications that govern the various phases of public works. No one publication can at all times reflect current information on all public works topics. Throughout this text references are made to pertinent official publications needed by the CEC officer on duty in a Public Works Department. The latest directives will frequently give modifications of programs and procedures which have been tested in actual work situations.
This text was prepared by the U. S. Navy Training Publications Center, Washington, D. C., a field activity of the Bureau of Naval Personnel. The Bureau of Yards and Docks and the U. S. Naval School, Civil Engineer Corps Officers, Port Hueneme, California, cooperated during the period of preparation by reviewing chapters and providing technical advice and assistance.

THE UNITED STATES NAVY
GUARDIAN OF OUR COUNTRY
The United States Navy is responsible for maintaining control of the sea and is a ready force on watch at home and overseas, capable of strong action to preserve the peace or of instant offensive action to win in war.
It is upon the maintenance of this control that our country's glorious future depends; the United States Navy exists to make it so.
WE SERVE WITH HONOR
Tradition, valor, and victory are the Navy's heritage from the past. To these may be added dedication, discipline, and vigilance as the watchwords of the present and the future.
At home or on distant stations we serve with pride, confident in the respect of our country, our shipmates, and our families.
Our responsibilities sober us; our adversities strengthen us.
Service to God and Country is our special privilege. We serve with honor.
THE FUTURE OF THE NAVY
The Navy will always employ' new weapons, new techniques, and greater power to protect and defend the United States on the sea, under the sea, and in the air.
Now and in the future, control of the sea gives the United States her greatest advantage for the maintenance of peace and for victory in war.
Mobility, surprise, dispersal, and offensive power are the keynotes of the new Navy. The roots of the Navy lie in a strong belief in the future, in continued dedication to our tasks, and in reflection on our heritage from the past.
Never have our opportunities and our responsibilities been greater.
