Abstract:

This paper examines the relationship between the Air Force Systems Acquisition and Military Construction processes. An analysis of recent weapon system deployments is used to conclude that although the Air Force system to anticipate, fund and construct facilities in support of new weapon systems is in place, crisis management efforts have been necessary to provide essential facilities by system Initial Operational Capability IOC. And secondly, since the systems acquisition process is event driven and the Military Construction process in time driven, significant mismatches occur that preclude proper facilities from being available when new systems are deployed. Several ways to overcome this problem are suggested. Author
