intendente = quartermaster


Explanation:
quartermaster: office in charge of stores, supplies

quartermaster-general: a staff-officer with this responsibility

quatermaster-sergeant: a non-commissioned officer with this responsibility

I think it might be unnecessary to provide a translation ofr comisario, it means officer, thus 'de sobra'.
