#IAMIMSC: Tony Moore

Duty title and unit: Government Information Access Manager, AFIMSC Installation Support Directorate Information Access Branch, JBSA-Lackland, Texas

Primary duty responsibilities: We process Freedom of Information Act requests from the general public for headquarters-level records at all major commands and provide oversight for all centers and installations. That oversight includes advisement, reporting and training. Additionally, I serve as the emerging technologies integrated project team lead and deputy branch chief.

What’s the best part of your job?
Providing customer service and helping people; researching difficult subjects; and finding interesting topics while supporting the field.

Why are you and your job important to the Air Force and AFMC?
We ensure compliance with by-law programs, support open government and do the administrative part of the process so Airmen can concentrate on duties and responsibilities. We support open government by providing releasable documents while protecting sensitive and controlled information.

What’s a recent project that gave you a great sense of accomplishment?
A continuous process improvement event where we examined different ways to evaluate our program besides just looking at the backlog of overdue cases. We achieved great insights and a potential way-ahead for the program.

Which AFIMSC priority do you most identify with – or see yourself and your job fitting into – and why?
I mostly identify with LOE 3: Pursue Organizational Excellence, but I can find a part of what we do in each priority. Our program used to be spread across the MAJCOMs with less standardization; the collaboration and support AFIMSC brings by consolidating this function was a great improvement.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?
I appreciate the opportunity to contribute to the cause.
