Program management has historically centered around weapon systems acquisitions however, this is changing as the Air Force Installation Contracting Center AFICC integrates Acquisition Program Managers APMs into its operational acquisition offices. Over 90 of AFICCs FY2020 spending was on service acquisitions, and APMs are the key to ensuring that these acquisitions align to AFICCs strategic goals related to operational acquisition. In order to assess current workforce perceptions related to the role and responsibilities of APMs, an informal survey was conducted. Survey responses were analyzed to identify common themes and gaps among the perceptions of leaders and APMs. This analysis highlights opportunities to improve the mutual understanding of the role and responsibilities of APMs, which will help AFICC better achieve its strategic goals.
