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 (NDS). 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 (I2S).

Goal 2: Increase Installation Resiliency
This goal creates tools and actionable plans to ensure the execution of mission-critical installation and mission support priorities 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
Improve new mission bed down processes to accelerate operational capabilities.

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

Goal 6: Data Driven Execution Plan Process
Using a deliberate process, this goal delivers a viable path toward the development of a data driven execution plan tool. The tool will support each of our I&MS portfolios and be customized to meet their specific validation and execution plan processes.

Goal 7: Integrate Air Base Command and Control
To effectively support installation crisis management across the spectrum of preparedness, the basing and logistics enterprise must optimize decision-making by integrating legacy plus emerging IT systems and processes used for installation support and emergency management.
