Air Force creates Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center

WASHINGTON (AFNS) — The Air Force is centralizing its installation support management within a newly created Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center, Air Force officials announced July 11.

The change resulted from a comprehensive effort to reduce overhead costs; increase efficiencies; eliminate redundant activities; improve effectiveness and business processes; and will help meet the Defense Department’s directive to reduce costs and staff levels by at least 20 percent.

The new AFIMSC will report to Air Force Materiel Command. Air Force officials announced Maj. Gen. Theresa Carter as the AFMC special assistant to the commander. She is charged with developing the strategy and implementation plans for this new center.

“This is a fundamental paradigm shift in how the Air Force has historically controlled and delivered installation support capabilities,” said Bill Booth, the Air Force’s acting deputy chief management officer. “As we look ahead to 2023, this new command structure will focus on consolidating installation support responsibilities from the Headquarters Air Force, major commands and multiple field operating agencies.”

The Air Force currently delivers installation support capabilities through a decentralized control, decentralized execution concept of operation. Consequently, each MAJCOM developed staffs and often created unique processes for the same functions, generating duplication of effort and inefficiencies.

“The current and projected fiscal constraints have driven the Air Force to make strategic decisions to reduce its size while retaining its combat effectiveness. Centralization of management support to the maximum extent possible improves our efficiency and effectiveness in providing installation and expeditionary combat support capabilities to our wing commanders and mission partners, and delivers more standardized levels of service across the Air Force,” Booth said. “While efficiency is our goal, we will not lose sight that installations are combat platforms for the Air Force; we deliver Global Vigilance, Global Reach and Global Power from our installations in garrison and at deployed locations around the world.”
