Air Force Contracting Self-Inspection Program
[Revised May 25, 2018]
1. Objective. The Air Force Self-Inspection program assesses compliance with federal laws, regulatory policies, and DoD and AF directives and instructions across the enterprise. It is also used to verify adequacy of contract preparation.
2. Self-Inspection Program. MAJCOM/DRU/AFRCO SCOs (or for SMC, the SCCO), will manage a self-inspection program, which includes both the assessment of individual contract files and the assessment of contracting management programs contained in the Contracting Self-Assessment Communicator (SAC) as required by AFI 90-201, The Air Force Inspection System. As a minimum, contracting offices must perform self-inspections of individual contract files on an annual basis.
For self-inspection of individual contract files reviewed after award, MAJCOM/DRU/AFRCO SCOs (or for SMC, the SCCO) may use the applicable sections of the on-line Reviewers Checklist; a comparable organizational checklist for post award reviews; the Air Force Contracting Self-Inspection Checklist; or any combination thereof. MAJCOM/DRU/AFRCO SCOs (or for SMC, the SCCO) will make this determination.
MAJCOM/DRU/AFRCO SCOs (or for SMC, the SCCO) will ensure corrective actions are implemented as a result of any self-inspection. Contracting offices must have a documented program for self-inspection, to include a process for closing resolved findings in a timely manner, ensuring an effective level of review necessary to close a finding, and integrating findings and resolutions into unit training.
3. Reporting. For the annual trend analysis, organizations are authorized to utilize trends found during the self-inspection process, clearance process, peer reviews, or contract committee reviews as the basis for their submissions. MAJCOM/DRU/AFRCO SCOs (or for SMC, the SCCO) shall use the Trend Analysis template.
