tains the organic account of the organization, Accordingly, such officer “wears two hats, i.e., for purposes of accountability, he administers two accounts which are entirely distinct and independent of one another--viz., the Organic Property Account and the Individual Clothing Account. The foregoing accounts are individually administered according to the instructions regarding a ccountability which obtain in each case,

1. Regular Establishment: The individual uniform clothing of the Regular Establishment is maintained within the Marine Corps Stock Fund Account. Accordingly, there is no requirement for field activities to budget for the clothing which is stored and administered by them. The Marine Corps Stock Fund ACcount operates under a revolving fund principle, i. e., the Stock Fund is reimbursed for issues and sales of clothing from stock. Monetary losses due to survey and inventory shortages are considered in establishing the standard price of each item and thus are recovered in the overall sales and issues. Marine Corps wide accounting information relative to Marine Corps Stock Fund Account individual clothing is maintained at Headquarters Marine Corps. Clothing within the Regular Establishment is administered under the clothing monetary allowance system.

2. Except as may be otherwise provided herein or in the Annual Individual Clothing Regulations the regulations which apply regarding the requirements of accountable officers for organic property accounts are equally applicable for officers accountable for Individual Clothing Accounts (viz., bonding requirements, implications of accountable duties, etc.). Details relative to the manner in which accountability for individual clothing accounts is maintained are contained in the Annual Individual Clothing Regulations.

Accordingly, certain prescribed forms are used in connection with the administration of individual uniform clothing; pertinent administrative procedures are prescribed; and the rendition of returns is required. The manner in which these requirements are met is discussed in this part and in the Annual Individual Clothing Regulations. This part contains generalized authorities and requirements--the detailed instructions which implement the requirements of this part are contained in the Annual Individual Clothing Regulations.

3. Inventories will be conducted in accordance with the instructions contained in the Annual Individual Clothing Regulations. Authorized procedures for effecting reconcilia tion of discrepancies are contained in the Annual Individual Clothing Regulations and/or the Marine Corps Supply Manual.
