AIR FORCE - AFI 32-7001
|Publication Date:||23 August 2019|
This instruction does not apply to AF environmental cleanup reporting and budgeting in the Continental United States (CONUS), which is under Air Force Instruction (AFI) 32-7020, The Environmental Restoration Program. While this AFI does apply to environmental management at our MAJCOMs and enduring installations Outside of the Continental United States (OCONUS), AFI 32-7091, Environmental Management Outside the United States, contains more specific environmental requirements, including environmental restoration guidance. Incorporate the AF EMS per this instruction at both CONUS and OCONUS installations.
eDASH. eDASH is the AF's (RegAF and AF Reserve unit) online Microsoft SharePoint (™) central repository and information sharing capability which supports the EMS standardization methodology and approach. It is the one-stop source for AF environmental and sustainability program information and actions at all levels.
Virtual Environmental Management Office (VEMO). VEMO is the ANG's online Microsoft SharePoint (™) capability that provides the same support for ANG installations as eDASH.
AFCEC/CZ, in concert with MAJCOMs, shall establish RegAF installations as "appropriate" multi-site or installation EMSs (defined in Attachment 1). (T-1). Reserve Component organizations will do the same for ANG installations and AFRC bases. (T-1).
The next higher level of command or HAF can exclude sub-ordinate organizations from the scope of the EMS if under different command authority, the primary EMS organization does not provide any environmental support, or the tenant organization is covered under a separate EMS.
In instances where AF, ANG, or AFR units and personnel are tenants to a non-AF organization, those personnel will follow the requirements in applicable and enforceable agreements in accordance with AFI 25-201, Intra-Service, Intra-Agency, and Inter-Agency Support Agreement Procedures. (T-1).
Joint Bases, where the AF is the supporting/lead service, will ensure a single EMS with a limited scope which only incorporates those Environmental Quality programs over which the AF has span of control. (T-1).
Each multi-site and installation EMS will consult with HAF, AFCEC/CZ, Air Force Reserve Command, Environmental & Asset Accountability Branch (AFRC/A4CA), or the ANG Logistics and Installations Directorate, Asset Management Division, Environmental Branch (NGB/A4V), or as appropriate, on the scope of their EMS. (T-1).
Each multi-site and installation EMS will ensure any organizations outside of the scope are aware of the scope determination. (T-3). If an installation wants to exclude AF tenant organizations (e.g., RegAF, AFR units, ANG), coordinate, approve, and document the exclusion with the host/tenant organization, AFCEC, AFRC, and Air National Guard Readiness Center (ANGRC), as applicable. (T-1).
Installations will use the EMS framework to evaluate and provide access to adequate natural infrastructure, such as air, land, water, flora, and fauna assets, to support mission accomplishment. (T-1). The EMS is used to assess and manage the natural infrastructure to ensure these assets have the capacity to meet current and future mission needs.
