Overview • Background • AFSO21 LCL (Acq) Workforce Event • Objective • Boundary Conditions • On-going Workforce Development Efforts • Governance / Focus Teams • Events • Summary
Background • AFMC/CA Tasker • “The Acquisition Logistics Workforce has eroded: Evaluate the Health of the Acquisition Logistics Workforce & fix it!” • Reference: AFMC/CA tasker, 12 Oct 07 The AF must ensure a world class LCL (Acq) Workforce with the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to enable optimal life cycle product support for weapon systems / sub systems
AFSO21 LCL (Acq) Workforce Event • Problem Statement: • The LCL (Acq) workforce responsible for ensuring supportability: • 1. Is not effectively used during system acquisition (most critically prior to Milestone B); and, • 2. Is not effectively managed and resourced to ensure availability of people proficient in the necessary LCL competencies impacting supportability of fielded systems.

(Program Initiation) C A B Concept Refinement Technology Development System Development & Demonstration Production & Deployment Operations & Support Design Readiness Review FRP Decision Review Concept Decision LRIP/IOT&E Systems Acquisition Sustainment Pre-Systems Acquisition Objective Value Proposition - What the Logistician brings to the table Translating warfighter performance requirements into tailored product support spanning the system life cycle Where is the Logistician most effective? While the initial cost to acquire a weapon system is high …… …..Sustainment costs represent largest portion of total ownership costs Acquisition Sustainment (AS) Tool Kit Logistics Health Assessments (LHA) Independent Logistics Assessments (ILA) What are we doing to facilitate up-front Product Support Planning?
Objective Develop and “right-size” the Life Cycle Logistics (LCL) (Acq) Workforce engaged in system acquisition, with the competencies, skills and management support necessary to translate and design warfighter performance requirements into tailored, affordable, effective product support spanning the entire system life cycle Charter signed by co-champions: Mr. Michael Aimone, AF/A4/7 & Mrs. Barbara Westgate, AFMC/CA 15 May 08
Boundary Conditions • Focus on 346 series / AFSC 21XX (officer) & 2XXXX (enlisted) personnel involved in logistics planning activities during weapon system / subsystem acquisition without regard to: • Geographic location / Product and Air Logistics Centers • New or fielded system Product Support Competencies (OSD Human Capital Strategy) Program Management & Planning Product Support Integration Supply Management Maintenance Planning & Management Deployed Distribution / Transportation Manpower, Personnel & Training Requirements Planning Use as template for other LCL competencies
On-going Workforce Development Efforts LCL (Acq) WF Recon – focus on DAWIA coded positions – leverages off HCS DoD Logistics Human Capital Strategy (HCS) (Big “L” – focus on entire career field) LCL (Acq) WF Recon – career centric - lends fidelity to ILCM PS Integrated Life Cycle Management Product Support (ILCM PS) (Competency focus)
