New BTO to help Airmen make USAFE processes more efficient, effective

Before becoming the Air Force Chief of Staff, Gen. Mark Welsh challenged the U.S. Air Forces in Europe to find more efficient and effective ways to use its resources.

“Current fiscal realities require commanders to take a hard look at how to most efficiently support and execute our missions within growing budget constraints,” said Welsh in an official memo to USAFE commanders. “With these challenges before us, I’m convinced the only way to maintain a viable capability for (USAFE’s) two combatant commanders is to manage financial risks by reducing costs.”

Gen. Philip Breedlove, the U.S. Air Forces in Europe commander, is committed to following through with his predecessor’s initiative.

“As the Defense Department decreases its spending to meet congressional budget requirements, it becomes increasingly more important for every Airman to take an active role to find ways to use the resources we do have more efficiently and effectively,” Breedlove said. 

In response, USAFE recently stood up a Business Transformation Office at Ramstein Air Base, Germany.

The office’s mission is to enable USAFE to improve business and operational processes, maximize mission capabilities, and reduce costs.
