Title Air Force Materiel Command Reorganization Analysis.
Publication Date 2012
Media Count 184p

Abstract The 2011 Budget Control Act reduces U.S. Department of Defense spending by $487 billion over the next decade, and the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) Resource Management Decision 703A2 directed that civilian staffing levels for all services return to fiscal year (FY) 2010 levels. This meant that the U.S. Air Force needed to reduce its civilian operations and maintenance (O&M) authorizations by 16,500; it chose to distribute these reductions across the force. The Air Force Materiel Command's (AFMC's) share of the reductions amounted to 4,500 authorizations out of approximately 22,000 civilian O&M positions. This directive, coupled with a reversal of OSD and Headquarters Air Force mandates to insource and strengthen acquisition skills, led AFMC to fundamentally reexamine how it operates, and the command published a plan for reorganization in November 2011. In the Defense Authorization Act for FY 2012, Congress directed the Secretary of the Air Force to have a federally funded research and development center provide an independent review of the proposed reorganization.
