The Air Force civil engineering community has found that its methods for articulating infrastructure funding needs and mission impacts in the Program Objective Memorandum POM process are insufficient, and it is in the process of investigating alternatives. In fiscal year FY 2014, the Air Force Civil Engineer asked RAND Project AIR FORCE PAF to investigate how the Air Force might articulate the effects of sustainment, restoration, and modernization SRM underfunding on readiness to ensure adequate funding to support these activities. This analysis explores the relationship between Air Force infrastructure management and mission readiness and capability. The goal is to identify methodological approaches and data requirements for articulating and quantifying these links and enabling the Air Force to answer the question What is the effect of funding infrastructure below stated requirements
