Greetings. Welcome to the Supply Department of the SCP Foundation.
Our department covers logistics, transport, and storage of Foundation assets worldwide. With new regulatory changes in our department, our duties now include sanitation, mess, and lodging; these new duties have made our department busier than ever before.
All information covered in your training can be found in this handbook. We would like to extend our gratitude for your service, and wish you the best of luck at your new station.
-Regional Director of Supply Department, North America
This handbook provides easy access to information necessary for SCP Foundation supply staffers.
The Supply Department is responsible for ensuring logistical and resource readiness across all Foundation facilities, including the transport and processing of all SCP/AE items and other hazardous materials. Additionally, duties of the Supply Department include financial tracking and security, sanitation, and meal/lodging services for department-level staff.
Each employee is issued a pay grade consistent with their position in the organization. Ranks are assigned in accordance with their pay grades. Promotions are to be given via necessity or upon recognition of exceptional performance. Activities recognized under such a category include volunteerism or completion of tasks without uneccessary oversight.
Site Staff Ranks
S-1 - AST. - Assistant - Assistants undergoing seasoning for their new department. Are to be promoted immediately following in-processing and completion of on-the-job department orientation.
S-2 - STF. - Staff - Responsible for mid-level work within their department. Staff are permitted to be issued higher security clearance levels for work purposes. (L1 - Confidential)
S-3 - TCH. - Technician - Technicians are personnel promoted due to their knowledge of specialized skills in their field, and are granted minor supervisional authority over lower ranks. (L2 - Restricted)

Out of necessity, Assistant Directors, and all affiliated Senior Staff are granted a Top Secret security clearance for presence in command decisions. (L4 - Top Secret)
SS-2 - HMCL. - HMCL Supervisor - The HMCL (Hazardous Materials Containment Liaison) Supervisor is a role that encapsulate the management of all departments associated with the non-militant handling and containment of hazardous materials typically sought by the SCP Foundation. HMCL Supervisors maintain full control of the Engineering, Research, Supply, and Medical departments. The HMCL Supervisor becomes Acting Site Director in the event that the Site Director and the Chief of Security are unable to fulfill their duties.
SS-3 - COS. - Chief of Security - Although technically inhabiting a personnel slot in both the Security Department and the Administration Department, the Chief of Security upholds the vital position of being first in the line of succession in the event that the Site Director is rendered unable to fulfill his duties.
SS-4 - SD. - Site Director - The Site Director is responsible for ensuring that the entire site operates effectively, in part reliant on his oversight of administrative personnel such as the HMCL Supervisor and the Chief of Security. Site Directors maintain contact with SCP Foundation regional command at all times, and receive express memos by the Overwatch Council. As such, they operate on the highest level of security clearance. (L5 - Thaumiel)
SS-5 - ARD. - Assistant Regional Director - Assistant Regional Directors function as the middlemen between regional and site commands. Assistant Regional Directors, as well as the ranks above, inhabit regional command posts rather than localized sites.

SS-7- O5-X. - Overseer - Overseers are individuals who inhabit the primary decision-making body of the SCP Foundation, the Overwatch Council.
The following outlines all procedures, such as warehouse management, inventory, sanitation, mess hall management, and lodging.
Safety of personnel should be high priority in all supply operations. Attention should be given to work conditions, such as sanitation of supply facilities, avoidance of fire hazards such as fallen objects, and obedience of traffic and cargo safety measures when working with vehicles.
The headquarters through which all supplies will be stored on-site will be the warehouse. Storage rooms and shelves can be found within the inner site in proximity to their respective departments.
The site will periodically receive shipments of supplies from regional supply vehicles, which will park at the designated delivery point for unloading. Supplies are kept in bulk containers, referred to as “shipments”. Supplies contained in shipments include office, laboratory, medical, or construction materials. Supplies that are in high demand for stocking should be kept closer to the center of the warehouse for easy access and transfer to the inner site.
Potentially hazardous shipments are marked by common “Dangerous Goods” labels. Certain shipments must be handled with extensive safety precautions.
General Precautionary Measures: NO SMOKING. Keep fire away from all hazardous shipments. Do not allow others to smoke in proximity.
Class 1: Explosives
Description: Any supply with a blast hazard.
Precaution: Hazardous Materials Suits must be worn by personnel at all times when in direct proximity to explosive supplies. Explosives must not be allowed to move or fall while in storage. Explosive shipments with dents, dampness, or oily stains are to be considered defective. Defective explosive shipments should be left within the delivery vehicle and tagged appropriately with a “HazMat Disposal” slip.
Class 2: Gasses
Description: Gases which are compressed, liquified or dissolved under pressure.
Precaution: Hazardous Materials Suits must be worn by personnel at all times when in direct proximity to gas supplies. Gas shipments found with inconsistent pressurization, leaky valves, or dents are to be considered defective. Defective gas shipments should be left within the delivery vehicle and tagged appropriately with a “HazMat Disposal” slip.
Label(s): FLAMMABLE GAS
NON-FLAMMABLE NON-TOXIC GAS
Class 3: Flammable Liquids
Description: Gasoline, fuel, or other flammable liquids.
Precaution: Fire extinguishers should be readied in addition to anti-ignition measures.
Label(s): FLAMMABLE LIQUID
Class 4: Flammable Solids
Description: Solid substances easily ignited or combustible, such as magnesium or matches, alkyls, and objects dangerous when wet such as sodium, calcium, and other laboratory chemicals.
Precaution: Flammable solid shipments found with leakage or dampness consistent with combustion hazards are to be considered defective. Defective flammable solid shipments should be left within the delivery vehicle and tagged appropriately with a “HazMat Disposal” slip. Class 4 chemicals that react dangerously with water should have similar precautions (no exposure to open air) to prevent moisture-induced hazards.
Label(s): FLAMMABLE SOLID
DANGEROUS WHEN WET
Class 5: Oxidizing Agents and Organic Peroxides
Description: Substances easily ignited or combustible.
Precaution: Oxidizing Agents/Organic Peroxide shipments found with leakage or dampness consistent with combustion hazards are to be considered defective. Defective oxidizing agents/organic peroxide shipments should be left within the delivery vehicle and tagged appropriately with a “HazMat Disposal” slip.
Label(s): OXIDIZING AGENT
Class 6: Toxic and Infectious Substances
Description: Substances such as poisons and vectors for infectious diseases.
Precaution: Hazardous Materials Suits must be worn by personnel at all times when in direct proximity to toxic and infectious substances. Damaged shipments are to be considered defective. Defective toxic/infectious substance shipments should not be approached, nor should physical contact be attempted. Contact site command for disposal advisory.
Class 7: Radioactive Substances
Description: Radioactive isotopes or materials.
Precaution: Hazardous Materials Suits must be worn by personnel at all times when in direct proximity to radioactive substances. Damaged shipments are to be considered defective. Defective radioactive substance shipments should not be approached, nor should physical contact be attempted. Contact site command for disposal advisory.
Class 8: Corrosive Substances
Description: Corrosive chemical compounds, such as lithium sulfate or hydrogen fluoride.
Precaution: Leaky or damp shipments are to be considered defective. Defective corrosive substance shipments should be left within the delivery vehicle and tagged appropriately with a “HazMat Disposal” slip.
Class 9: Miscellaneous
Precaution: Contact site command for details.
Label(s): MISCELLANEOUS DANGEROUS GOODS
Some shipments are designated as “military supplies” and require keycard authentication by Security Department personnel to open. These shipments should be treated like any other delivery, with special attention given to EXPLOSIVE materials.
All supplies should be catalogued on a single document every shipping day. Surplus supplies stored in the warehouse are to be considered “Inventory Surplus”, while items issued to departments are to be considered “Inventory Issued”. Inventory documents should be assigned a date, and are to be uploaded to the site’s IntSCPFN Network under the "INVENTORY REPORTS" section - proper inventory report formatting can be found in this same section.
The following is a breakdown of how the site should be stocked. Stocked items are classified as “Inventory Issued” and are given for general site usage rather than being gained to the supply warehouse as a surplus. As a result, they do not need to be tracked under the inventory report, as the departments themselves handle their usage.
All Supply Department personnel should continuously inspect these areas to ensure that they are fully stocked. Areas lacking in items should be restocked, with the Inventory Report updated accordingly by the manager on-duty.
Supply Department personnel should also be on standby when departments request supplies to be transferred between areas.
Warehouse - Supply Headquarters - All imported shipments are to be stocked here and recorded as “Inventory Surplus”.
Large Storage Room - Shipments such as construction materials or industrial items are to be delivered here. These items are permitted for use by any department. Recorded as “Inventory Issued”.
Small Storage Room - Shipments such as laboratory equipment and chemicals are to be delivered here. These items are permitted for use by any department. Recorded as “Inventory Issued”.
Research Department Cabinet - Shipments such as sensitive laboratory equipment and chemicals are to be delivered here. These items can only be used by the research department. Recorded as “Inventory Issued”.
Engineering Department Cabinet - Shipments such as sensitive construction materials or industrial items are to be delivered here. These items can only be used by the engineering department. Recorded as “Inventory Issued”.
Medical Department Cabinet - Shipments such as medical supplies are to be delivered here. These items can only be used by the medical department. Recorded as “Inventory Issued”.
Administration Department Cabinet - Financial assets are to be delivered here. These items can only be used by the administration department. Recorded as “Inventory Surplus”.
Dining Facility, Lounge, D-Class Cafeteria - Snack food and drink is to be unpacked and stocked here for public use (except for the D-Class Cafeteria). Distribution of meals will be covered under the “Dining Facility” section.
Cleanliness protocols adhered to by warehouse management should be applied to the rest of the site. Chemical spills, human waste, and other sanitation concerns should be covered by supply department personnel. Precautions can be taken on a case-by-case basis.
For sanitation of hazardous materials, always consult with Research Department personnel for information on safety measures.
At the discretion of the Administration Department, meal times can be ordered, in which supply department personnel are to man the Dining Facility.
The Dining Facility should be stocked with prepared meals in accordance with their enclosed recipes - menus may vary, but should include, at a minimum:
2x Entree Options
3x Side Options
4x Drink Options
2x Desert Options
Supply Department personnel are responsible for transportation of personnel between the lodging location and the site via motor vehicle.
Recieving Anomalous Items
The reception and storing of anomalous items and entities is the only Supply Department concern shared by all other departments. Consult the Briefing on Anomalous Entities supplement for details.
