Unit Effectiveness Inspection – one week down, one week to go

ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- One week down, one more to go. A Unit Effectiveness Inspection at Robins which began Monday continues until July 29.

Next week’s inspections will focus on the 78th Air Base Wing, Air Force Sustainment Center operating locations and Air Force Life Cyle Management Center units.

This week they looked at Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex and the 638th Supply Chain Management Group.

Those units have completed their portions of the inspection.

Air Force Materiel Command teams are on location at Robins to inspect a variety of different areas, and are ensuring we’re sustaining credible and viable commander’s inspection programs for all AFMC units,” said Matthew Quilliams, 78th Inspector General Inspection System Administrator.

“To all who are involved – and even those who aren’t – keep doing what you do best by keeping our country safe, and making Robins a great place to work, live and play,” he added.

A team of more than 100 AFMC inspectors will have visited by the end of next week to conduct inspections under a newly-implemented Air Force Inspection System.

Base-wide inspections such as those conducted this week are essential functions of command. They evaluate the efficiency, readiness, discipline and resource management of units to ensure the focus is on mission readiness, as well as building a culture of disciplined compliance in how work is performed.

A cornerstone of AFIS includes a self-assessment component with the use of the online Management Internal Control Tool set. Information contained in MICT provide critical data to leadership about the adequacy of policy, training, manpower, funds, equipment and facilities.

AFIS is built on several pillars, including the unit self-assessment program, and focuses on executing the mission, managing resources, improving units and leading people.

Under AFIS, commanders can receive an independent assessment of a unit’s ability to prevent fraud and abuse, minimize waste, as well as to find, report, analyze and fix deficiencies.
