Since the 1970s, the Information Center IC concept has received acclaim as a solution for increasing End User productivity. Basically the Information Center, as defined by IBM, is a Department catering to End User data automation needs at their level. In other words, the Users are doing their own computer processing with the help of the IC. Presently, the Information Center concept is being implemented in both the business community and in the U.S. Government. However, the Department of the Air Force is missing from this list. Air Force Base Level Organizations should have capabilities similar to those being used in civilian Information Centers to access information.

The concept was then applied to show how these needs might be resolved. The concept addresses four areas a mission statement, Information Center functions, staff, and evaluation. Author.
