Inspector General


Our office is a blend of officers and Senior NCOs who are subject matter experts in Aviation, Aviation Maintenance and Medical career fields.

We provide the 62nd AW commander with a comprehensive inspection and readiness program by conducting thorough inspections, developing and executing realistic readiness exercises and mitigating the risk of undetected non-compliance.

In 2010, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Nortan Schwartz tasked the Air Force Inspector General to give the Air Force inspection program a major overhaul. Airmen may have noticed a few changes as a result, such as the implementation of the Consolidated Unit Inspection (CUI). The overall goal of the CUI was to combine and integrate multiple inspections, thereby freeing up "white space" on the calendar to allow commanders more time to focus on training and readiness.

Another significant change was the adoption of the Management Internal Control Toolset (MICT). MICT is a program that takes self-assessment to whole new level. As units complete compliance checklists in MICT, they are required to not only self-identify deficiencies, but they also develop and upload corrective action plans in order to demonstrate compliance.

Air Force leadership has finalized plans to implement another major change to the inspection system. The new system, called the Commander's Inspection Program (CCIP), is designed to ensure units are mission-ready at all times.

Under CCIP, the wing will undergo a continuous evaluation cycle, thereby eliminating the need to ramp up inspection prep every few years. The new philosophy is "mission-ready equals inspection-ready." At the local level the Wing's Inspector General's Inspections office will continuously validate and verify data input into MICT through a combination of scheduled, short notice, and no-notice inspections. The major command IG will virtually inspect a sampling of units and programs within MICT, and only visit the 62nd AW one week every two years to conduct a hands-on inspection. This inspection, called the Unit Effectiveness Inspection, will replace most compliance inspections and all readiness inspections.
