Unit History: Directorate General Ships

Directorate General Ships
The Directorate General Ships was formed within the naval support command in October 1995 to gather together different elements of the Royal Navy’s engineering and material support functions. The organisation is responsible for directing the in-service support of surface ships and submarines and their equipments; for ensuring that proper consideration is given to support issues and marine engineering design requirements in the procurement of new naval platforms; and for the ownership and management of the naval stores inventory except for fuel and food. It contributes to the operational capability of the Royal Navy, together with other areas of the naval support command, to ensure the overall material availability, reliability and maintainability of front line military equipment. The main internal customer is the Commander-in-Chief Fleet, although the organisation is also closely engaged with the procurement executive in minimising the support costs of new vessels and equipments.
