Air Force Materiel Command’s Fiscal 2017 Savings Hit $2.5B

The Air Force Materiel Command saved more than $2.5 billion over the last fiscal year, which addressed its cost savings and avoidance objective under the 2017 AFMC Strategic Plan.

All five AFMC centers implemented initiatives during FY 2017 to reduce expenses and increase operational efficiency, the command said Tuesday.

“Air Force leadership looks to AFMC as the service’s cost conscience,” said Gen. Ellen Pawlikowski, AFMC commander.

” It’s a responsibility we take very seriously and a goal we are constantly striving to work toward.”

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s program to manage jet fuel consumption resulted in a cost avoidance of nearly $1.9 million.

The Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center’s contracting agency posted $6.5 million in cost avoidance through the implementation of contracted transient alert services across nine major commands.

The Air Force Research Laboratory achieved cost avoidance of $17 million with the use of agile business processes.

The Air Force Test Center saved $375,000 following the development of a yaw test method designed to eliminate damaged balances and prevent testing delays.

The Air Force Sustainment Center reported $21.4 million in cost avoidance via its process of qualifying parts and certifying additional suppliers of aircraft parts.
