LOE 1 Description: Delivering lethality and readiness requires combat-ready forces and infrastructure that enable successful mission accomplishment. The AFIMSC team builds and maintains the platforms from which the Air Force operates in air and space. Increasing lethality and readiness is at the heart of what we do every day so that the Air Force can defend, deter, fight and win wars. 

Goal 1: Optimize Infrastructure
The Air Force must slow down or halt the degradation in the most critical infrastructure assets based on their importance to the National Defense Strategy. This goal is putting plans in place so AFIMSC can better advocate for infrastructure funding, effectively spend the resources we get and ensure bases spend their resources effectively in line with the Infrastructure Investment Strategy.

Goal 2: Increase Installation Resiliency
This goal creates tools and actionable plans to ensure the execution of mission-critical priorities for installation and mission support are aligned with higher headquarters and Air Force priorities. This will reduce vulnerabilities while enhancing our ability to protect, respond and recover from disruptions to operations and supporting infrastructure.

Goal 3: Improve Strategic Basing
Strategic basing decisions are multifaceted and relate to the stationing or basing of weapon systems, squadrons, capabilities and forces for both Air and Space Forces. AFIMSC is uniquely positioned to provide an objective enterprise-wide look to help Air Force decision-makers understand the value of various candidate locations. This goal seeks to optimize the entire process by leveraging authoritative data and AFIMSC expertise. 

Goal 4: Revolutionize Base Lethality
Using several key processes, this goal develops actionable steps to transform the “installation of today” to the “future blueprint” through effective resourcing in a constrained environment. This holistic approach empowers an installation's ability to achieve mission success using existing capabilities, through innovation and resource-informed advocacy.

Goal 5: Prioritize Airmen Readiness
A top AFIMSC priority is Airmen readiness, which relies on dynamic programs and funding to produce highly trained and mission-ready Airmen. This goal will prioritize training funding to reduce gaps and prevent bases from making high-risk choices that leave the Air Force vulnerable.
