Abstract : In the past, commanders have relied on the chief of supply and the accounting and finance officer to manage the Air Force Stock Fund and have for the most part not gotten deeply involved in the management process. That methodology worked well because no one knew better how to determine requirements and how to fund those requirements than supply and accounting and finance. Since its inception in the late sixties, the Air Force Stock Fund required the bases to budget for and manage funds to support only non-weapon system assets, such as office equipment, administrative supplies, and local purchase items. Weapon system spares were budgeted for and funded by Air Force Logistics Command, and bases had little or no concern about cost of those spares, stock levels on hand, or reparability at base level.
