(modifies Flag Order 3183 in regard to qualifications for the Deck Project Force - which remains in being.) Only revisions on page 9 and 10 in italics.

The Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF) is hereby brought into being in Div 4 Area Estates Org.

To it are assigned:

1. R/Sers

2. Low OCA non-producers

3. Repeated stat crashers

4. Overt Product makers.

The Estates Project Force remains for Recruits, Products 0, 1, etc.

New Recruits and those Veterans who are not Prod 0 or who are TIPed for Prod 1 are posted to the EPF for Products 0 and 1 as required.

IF anybody while in the EPF is found to be in one of the categories 1-4 above, he is at ONCE routed to the RPF.

If a new arrival is found to be in one of the categories 1-4 above when he arrives and he is not returned whence he came, he is routed straight to the RPF.

The EPF, hitherto used for the retreading of those persons who suffer from robotism or who produce overt products or who need continual supervision and are a liability on lines, is now to be permitted and made to be an UPSTAT unit with high standards, high production and high morale unhindered by those who do not belong in such a unit but require special handling on their own without distracting others who are doing well.


The RPF members wear a BLACK boilersuit, or ethnically acceptable cleaning outfit in very dark blue.


The basic organization is as follows:

RPF Bosun
RPF Section Leaders
RPF Section Members

The sections are made up of the leader plus 6-7 members,, depending on the overall total. Each section is identified by a letter - 'A' Section, 'B' Section, etc. The leader is responsible for his section, The members of one section answer to their section leader, to the RPF MAA or RPF Bosun, or any other on-line senior.

When working on specific cycles of action, members of one section may be seconded by RPF Bosun to another section for that specific cycle. This would be done if a cycle required 2 more members than were in the section assigned to that cycle, but did not require two whole sections.

The RPF Bosun's directions in these temporary assignments are final and may be contested only by a Job Endangerment Chit by the Protesting section leader.

Any stats obtained by the seconded members are credited to the section to which they belong.

The section leaders are responsible for the productions ethics, job-training, mustering, study attendance, study progress, berthing, messing, appearance, personal hygiene, etiquette, discipline, moral, general progress and behavior of the members in their own sections.

They see that their members are applying on-the-job basic Sea Org cleaning, maintenance and hygiene tech such as in FSO 674 SPOTLESS, SHINY SHIP MAINTENANCE MINI HAT issues.

The RPF Bosun is responsible for these factors with regard to the section leaders.

The RPF MAA is responsible to the RPF Bosun for the Ethics of the section leaders and of the RPF as a unit. He forces the section leaders to keep Ethics in on their sections, and if he has to take Ethics action on a section member that member's leader suffers the same penalty also. He has the section leaders muster their sections before breakfast, after meals and before studys before securing for the day, and at any other times required by the Bosun within reason and without distracting from production. If the Bosun has to bypass the RPF MAA to get in Ethics, the same penalty applies to the RPF MAA.


On assignment to the RPF, petition or no, the person forfeits any position held in any other activity than post, in a watch, Troupe, Team or anything else, or any non-Scientology or community activity, etc. Where the RPF person has taken part in a non-Scientology activity and would be expected to attend, meet payments, dues, or contribute in any way but won't be able to because of RPF regulations a detailed report is to be made by the person as part of his routing into the RPF with copies sent to the AG Flag copy for Ethics folder and copies to any other Execs who should be informed to ensure proper handling.

A member of the RPF is a member of the RPF and of nothing outside of it, till released.


The sections of the RPF either singly or combined are put to work on:

1. Building cleaning, exterior (including grounds) and interior.

2. Heads cleaning.

3. Painting requiring no extra skill.

4. Internal renovation.

5. Storage, passageway and stairway cleaning.

6. Large scale CSP actions but NOT in any berthing,, messing or galley areas.

7. Garage cleaning.

8. Elevator and elevator shaft cleaning.

9. E/R cleanings especially upper and lower boiler rooms

10. Party, etc. set-ups, but only MEST work (moving furniture, etc.).

11. Garbage disposal.

12. Other actions as may be approved (and not otherwise) by LRH Pers Comm via LRH Comm Area Estates (or as delegated by LRH Pers Comm.

The RPF do NOT:

a. Clean FCCI Rooms.

[deleted] e. Do any clerical work of any kind.

f. Clean, re-arrange or otherwise handle the berthing and personal property of any crew member.

g. Do any fine paint, carpets, woodwork, plaster, wallpaper, varnish or window replacement work.

h. Do any security guard, watch or WQSB duties.

i. Hold any post on any org lines-outside the unit as "Expeditor" or "Temporary" or anything else.

j. Go on any kind of Mission or Errand whatever.

k. Do any crew's normal cleaning station for him.

1. Work with the EPF.

m. Handle any Motor Pool vehicle in any way,

The Stable Datum for the Unit and for its individual sections is ONE JOB, ONE PLACE, ONE TIME.


Its sub-products are COMPLETED CYCLES OF ACTION.

The optimum utilization of the whole RPF and its sections is the responsibility of the RPF Bosun.

This requires that he has a large board on which the authorized work cycles can be shown and which indicates which are not started, not complete, and DONE.

He must have a list of daily and weekly tasks that the RPF is authorized to do, and a programme or programmes for the cleaning and upgrade of specified areas of the base. The routine lists and programmes must be okayed by the Area Estates Bosuns First Mate and CO Area Estates, no matter who originates them.

He must resist all efforts to break the 1 job, 1 place, 1 time stable datum.

When a cycle is reported-complete he must-verify the fact by personal inspection (which can at times be delegated to the RPF MAA) and is to then either got the job properly completed by those who failed to do it, or to acknowledge,the completion directly with an okay, good, very good, well done, very well done, as the case may be.

A half-done or overt product of course merits Ethics penalties in addition to enforcement of the original order.

The Area Estates Bosun coordinates the assigments of EPF and RPF.



The Cont LRH Comm or a valid deputy will authorize or not all applications for actions referred to in this FO and the FO 3434R Series as requiring LRH Pers Comm approval.


The Motto of the RPF is:
