Abstract:

Increased reliance on technology while budgets are tightening makes our investments in information technology IT all the more critical. How do we know whether our expenditures on IT are providing commensurate value to our mission to fly and fight and win in Air, Space and Cyberspace This paper employs an assessment technique used in industry and applies the technique to the various echelons of command within the Air Force, namely the Headquarters, Major Command, and Operating Base levels to determine what IT governance structures exist within the Air Force. This case study on IT governance in the Air Force was conducted based on personal interviews with knowledgeable personnel at each echelon of command.
