Abstract : The objective of this project was to provide recommendations to the AFIT Commandant regarding AFlT's information systems and information management practices to help the Commandant respond quickly and accurately to internal management and external advocacy information requests. The scope of this project was constrained in three ways: (1) Limit analysis to processes that satisfy the Commandant's information requests (ad hoc or periodic), (2) Consider only AFIT directorates and schools as information sources, and (3) Exclude day-to-day operations of AFIT directorates and schools unless they have a direct bearing on the Commandant's information needs. The systems analysis and design team also noted that any recommendations would need to be compatible with Air University (AU) and Air Education and Training Command (AETO) information and system architectures.
