Naval Support Activity New Orleans

The Naval Support Activity, New Orleans was previously an United States Navy installation. It was established in the early 1900s, and closed and opened several times. It finally progressed from  the U.S. Naval Station to the Headquarters, Support Activity in 1966 when the Army transferred ownership of the property located on the river’s east bank to the Navy.

In current time CNIC’s mission is to enable the Navy’s Operating Concept through Enterprise alignment of all shore installation support to the Fleet, Fighter and Family.

The Navy’s Operating Concept or “NOC” is essentially “Big” Navy’s mission statement of how DOD’s maritime component will execute its mission.

The Enterprises are those war fighting domains (Naval Aviation Enterprise (NAE), Undersea Enterprise (USE), etc.) which oversee the procurement, use and sustainment of all the ships, aircraft, submarines and their associated operating concepts, so the Navy can execute the NOC.

CNIC’s job as an “enabler” is to thread a needle across these Enterprises, with the needle and thread equating to all the services our installations provide on a daily basis in support of the Enterprises. These services (Ports, Airfields, MWR and Housing, to name just a few) are how we support the “Fleet, Fighter and Family.”

“Fleet” represents the operating forces of the Navy. CNIC ensures all installation requirements necessary to train and operate the Fleets (Ports, Airfields, Training Ranges, etc.) are maintained and ready regardless of tempo.

“Fighter” represents the men and women in the operating forces. CNIC ensures the installation’s ability to facilitate the manning, training and equipping of the Navy’s fighting force never skips a beat.

“Family” represents the men and women of the armed forces and their families. To ensure our fighting force is supported on all fronts, our Family and Community Services, Housing and Safety efforts provide the “peace of mind” to allow “Big” Navy to operate effectively.

Established on October 1, 2003, Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) is the Echelon II command under the Chief of Naval Operations responsible for Navy-wide shore installation management. The stand up of CNIC was an effort in the continuation of fleet and regional shore installation management organizational alignment that began in 1997 with the reduction of installation management claimants from 18 to 8. The intent of CNIC is to establish a single shore installation management organization that will focus on installation effectiveness and improve the shore installation management community’s ability to support the fleet.

Commander, Navy Installations Command has overall shore installation management responsibility and authority as the Budget Submitting Office for installation support and the Navy point of contact for installation policy and program execution oversight.

Commander, Navy Installations Command Headquarters is located at 716 Sicard Street SE Suite 1000, Washington, D.C..
