Abstract:

The two major methods of accounting for depot maintenance resources in the Air Force are explored. First discussed are funds appropriated by Congress, including Depot Purchased Equipment Maintenance DPEM funds. Next reviewed is the Depot Maintenance Industrial Fund DMIF, the revolving fund through which all Air Force depot maintenance funds must pass. These two methods of accounting for depot maintenance resources are compared and a series of basic issues are related to that accounting. These issues include DPEM backlogs, net availability, contract DMIF, stock funding of repairable spare parts, and other current issues affecting depot maintenance resources. The paper concludes with recommendations for further study, simplification and encouragement of a professional dialogue. Keywords Air Force logistics command, Financial management.
