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.
