The Commissariat, also known as the Officio Prefectus[3], is a faculty of the Departmento Munitorum overseeing the activities of the Commissar officer corps within the Astra Militarum. The Commissariat attaches Commissars to most Regiments of the Imperial Guard to inspire its men, boost morale, and if necessary take control when its commanders or soldiery are demonstrating a lack of zeal or competency. The Commissariat also recruits potential Commissars from the Ecclesiarchy's Schola Progenium then trains them for their duties within the Guard.[1]

Fleet Commissariat

The Imperial Navy also operates a corps of Commissars, known as the Fleet Commissariat. These officers perform the same function as their Imperial Guard counterparts.[2]
