Abstract : This research paper evaluates the current organizational structure in TAC services squadrons and recommends an internal realignment to improve operations. It evaluates the span of control and the available resources to manage squadron activities. It also identifies activities in the squadron that are common to all branches, and shows where consolidated management is possible. The paper also shows that the current organizational configuration does not totally comply with Air Force organization and policy guidance. The paper recommends an internal squadron realignment that consolidates into one branch the linen exchange and furnishings management, as well as resource management, readiness, and training. This new branch, plus the food service and billeting branches would report directly to the operations officer. The paper concludes that this realignment can result in a better environment in which to meet the services challenges of resource management, readiness, and training; and in which to improve squadron commander effectiveness.
