The U.S. Air Force released a two-year plan to improve the service branchâs business practices and internal operations, the branch said Monday.
The first business operations plan will cover fiscal years 2019 through 2021 and provide a framework for synchronizing functions and organizational activities while also establishing lines of accountability. Objectives to be addressed include improving aviator retention, increasing family support programs, fostering data access efforts and launching conditions-based aircraft maintenance initiatives.
âSharpening the Air Forceâs competitive edge means building a more lethal, ready force for the high-end fight,â said Air Force Undersecretary Matthew Donovan.
The undersecretary will supervise the planâs progress and provide updates biannually as the serviceâs chief management officer. Leaders of business operations will provide a quarterlyÂ report to the Air Force Productivity Council with details onÂ the planâs implementation.
The service seeks to align its business strategy with the National Defense Strategy as well as focus areas such as improving Air Force readiness and lethality, establishing alliances and relationships and reforming business procedures to address performance and cost issues.
