Purpose.

The purpose of this AFI is to ensure AF contracted services are delivered to the warfighter effectively, efficiently, and in a timely manner. This instruction seeks to encourage a synergistic relationship within the services acquisition community, which consists of program managers, contracting officers/specialists, functional representatives, financial managers, small business specialists, requirement owners, and any other stakeholder charged with any part of developing, executing, or monitoring a services requirement from identification to contract close-out. Within this AFI, there are actions that call for crosstalk between the different disciplines to gather necessary documentation or data to demonstrate that effective governance processes are in place to manage services acquisitions. It encourages each member to reach out and gather what is necessary to deliver needed services to the warfighter and to show accountability to the taxpayer. It provides instruction to mission owners and acquisition officials charged with defining and acquiring capabilities necessary to support the warfighter. This AFI provides for the following:

Establishes policy guidance and implement a management structure for the acquisition of services IAW §10 USC 2330.

Defines roles, assigns responsibilities, establishes review and approval expectations of all participants responsible for acquiring services, and provides direction for acquiring services IAW §10 USC 2330.

Establishes the requirement for the use of a Strategic Management Tool (SMT) and introduces future procedures for data input and management of service requirements.
