For better effectiveness, control and information systems should be understood and supported at all organizational levels. Assuming the Air Force Inspection and Readiness Evaluation Program to be a control and information system, the study samples attitudes of lower level Air Force managers division level and below toward the present system. Aerospace Defense Command and Strategic Air Command managers are surveyed. A Likert scale is used to obtain not only overall attitude scores, but also scores in critical areas defined by the authors as the relevancy, criticality, efficiency, effectiveness, and flexibility of the inspection system. Quantitative and qualitative results are presented.
