Abstract : The purpose of this study was to examine the interaction between Air Force Systems Command (AFSC) and Air Force Logistics Command (AFLC) during the development, acquisition, and implementation of Class IV and Class V modifications. The topic was chosen for two reasons. The first is that modifications are becoming an increasingly important way to sustain and improve an effective United States defense posture. The second is that an interaction problem was perceived by the author during her tenure as program manager for a major Class IV modification. The study evaluates the interaction, the applicable regulatory guidance, previous studies, and current managers' opinions for ways to improve this interaction. The study recommends some regulation changes, two pamphlet updates, improvement in the standards for PMDs, mandatory written agreements between (among) AFLC and AFSC organizations for each modification program, and inclusion of the pamphlets in managers' training.
