Depot Maintenance Air Force Faces Challenges in Managing to 50-50 Ceiling

We are pleased to be here today to discuss the Air Forces recent waiver of the 10 U.S.C. 2466 provision that places a 50-percent ceiling on the amount of depot maintenance funds that can be used for work performed by the private sector. The statute allows the Secretary of a military department to waive the 50-percent requirement for purposes of national security. In notifying the Congress of the waiver, the Secretary of the Air Force explained the need for the waiver primarily because the private sector was needed to temporarily support maintenance that is being moved from the closing Sacramento, California, and San Antonio, Texas, depots to other military depots or private sector sources. As you requested, my testimony today focuses on the basis for the waiver and the likelihood that the Air Force will need additional waivers in the future.
