Your 24/7/365 gateway for the following issues and more:

  • Systems and equipment: (e.g., hull, mechanical and electrical, weapon systems, IT, technical data).

  • Supply and logistics: (e.g., requisition follow-ups, ordnance, food service, household goods).

  • Installations and facilities: (e.g., environmental, public works, community support).

Why Navy 311?

NAVY 311 is not a new service, but rather a new name for the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) component of the Navy's Distance Support (DS) capability.  As such, "NAVY 311" simplifies help desk access and easily identifies this assistance from among the many other important Fleet Distance Support services.

Many forward-thinking government organizations and municipalities are using centralized "3-1-1" call centers to cost-effectively expand citizen services and streamline operations.  In the same manner, NAVY 311 is focused on achieving Fleet customer service excellence through modern technology, timely feedback, and increased operational efficiency.

How does NAVY 311 help Sailors?

You can call us about maintenance, ship parts and/or repair, personnel or career matters, training, quality of life, facilities, medical support, ordnance, or any other non-emergency, non-tactical topic.

Benefits of NAVY 311

NAVY 311 aims to provide an enterprise framework for proactive service delivery to the Fleet and past and predictive analysis to leadership for fact-based resource decisions. Some key benefits of NAVY 311 include:

  • Reactive Service Delivery: Provides Fleet access to authoritative information and assistance in near real-time, in port and at sea, and whenever and wherever afloat units are operating.

  • Proactive Service Delivery: Allows providers to "push" critical information to Fleet customers in anticipation of planned maintenance and/or operations.

  • Predictive Analysis: Integrates data from transactional support systems across the Navy to give Fleet customers and program offices a broader view of recurring systemic issues so they can make improved resource decisions.

  • Metrics: Enables decision makers to determine effectiveness of support community, identify requirements for resource reallocation, analyze return on investment (ROI), and other analyses.

  • Call Center Optimization: Supports a collective, modernized approach to data collection and exchange, standards, reporting metrics, and interaction across individual Navy contact centers.

NAVY 311 in Action

An Electronic Technician (ET3) from the USS MAHAN (DDG 72) identifies two separate circuit card assembly (CCA) faults.  The ship's force replaces the CCAs with onboard Maintenance Assistance Modules (MAMs), yet both CCAs continue to fail, and the ship's force is unable to identify the cause.

Via email, the ET3 requests support from NAVY 311, who documents the issue, records customer and problem data, and assigns a service request to Norfolk Ship Support Activity (NSSA) Detachment Naples, Italy.

With NSSA Det Naples' assistance, the ship's force of the USS MAHAN determines that the SA-2112 secure voice switch has a faulty power supply and orders a replacement unit.
