1. Objective. The Air Force Self-Inspection program assesses compliance with federal laws, regulatory policies, DoD and AF directives, and instructions across the enterprise. It is also used to verify adequacy of contract preparation.
2. Self-Inspection Program. SCOs 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, SCOs may use the Air Force Contracting Self-Inspection Checklist; a comparable organizational checklist for post award reviews; or any combination thereof.
SCOs 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.
