|Publication Date:||21 October 2011|
Overview. The Air Force Strategic Basing Structure (AFSBS - see Terms) provides for the Air Force approval of basing actions. All basing actions require the submission of a Basing Action Request (BAR) as described in AFI 10-503, Strategic Basing, to AF/A8PB and will follow the strategic basing process.
Process Steps. Basing actions requiring HAF approval will use the process as per directives in AFI 10-503. This process is designed to inform a Secretary and Chief of Staff of the Air Force (SECAF/CSAF) decision on a preferred alternative for an overseas basing action which then becomes the Air Force position that is coordinated IAW Joint Staff and Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) guidance for approval at the required levels outside the Air Force.
