Abstract : The Air Force Stock Fund encountered serious difficulties between fiscal years (FY) 1987 and 1989. Cash management, outlay projections, and inventory accumulations became major concerns. As a result, the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) implemented significant stock fund financial controls. The resulting micro management significantly complicated the Air Forces day-to-day capabilities to support the customer. Supply faced great difficulty in procuring needed supplies and financially managing the GSD program. The corrective actions sponsored by a general officer steering group working stock fund issues have improved and nearly normalized supply operations. A new management focus is now employed, however, which places more emphasis on financial management. This focus and the experience of FY 87 to FY 89 will be useful as the Air Force incorporates major stock fund changes being directed by OSD. Knowledge of the stock fund and its more important financial aspects will be essential for resource managers in the 1990s.
