8/17/2011 - Scott Air Force Base, Ill. -- The 375th Air Mobility Wing will undergo a Combined Unit Inspection Aug. 22-29 with all areas of the mission undergoing a thorough review.

"Everyone within the 375th AMW has been working hard to prepare for this inspection," said Col. Michael Hornitschek, 375th AMW commander. "Now it's time to showcase those efforts to the IG team and demonstrate just how thoroughly we Enable Combat Power every day."

As the first base to undergo a CUI, the wing will face eight separate inspections, some of which, like the Cyber Command Readiness Inspection, or CCRI, which took place Aug. 1-5, have already happened. Others like the Aircrew Standardization and Evaluation Visit, or ASEV, began prior to the CUI dates and will continue on for a few months after.

Maj. Douglas Booser, Wing Plans, Program and Readiness chief of exercise evaluations and inspections, said, "Everyone should be extremely proud of the work accomplished to get the wing ready for the CUI. The wing has gone 'back to basics' in preparation, ensuring compliance with Air Force Instructions and governing directives as well as providing the opportunity for unit leaders to mentor those in junior ranks and positions. In addition to all the hard work already put in, adding a positive attitude can make your program truly shine for the inspectors."

In addition to the CCRI and ASEV, other inspections include the Air Traffic System Evaluation Program (ATSEP); Standardization and Evaluation Program of Weather Operations (SEPWO); Logistics Compliance Assessment Program (LCAP); Health Services Inspection (HSI); Environmental and Occupational Health Compliance Assessment Management Program (EOHCAMP), and a traditional Compliance Inspection.

During the evaluation, more than 150 Inspector General team members will be on base.
"This inspection will be a fundamentally open book test covering our daily operations," said Hornitschek. "We already know all the answers and as long as we can demonstrate that and keep a positive attitude, we'll have no problem proving we are Air Mobility Command's Showcase Wing."

An overview of the inspections
The ASEV evaluates the proficiency of aircrews and examines the standardization/evaluations, tactics, training and aviation resources management programs for the wing.

The ATSEP assesses the ability of the air traffic system to meet standards and operational requirements of civil and military users.

The SEPWO will take a close look at the weather team's processes, procedures and mission support effectiveness.

The purpose of the LCAP is to provide an evaluation of a unit's ability to perform logistics processes in a safe, standardized, repeatable and compliant manner.

The HSI will examine three areas within the 375th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron: leadership, in garrison operations--to include items such as nursing services and patient safety, and expeditionary operations - to include items such as clinical training and readiness requirements.

The CCRI took a close look at the entire base's information assurance and computer network defense policies to ensure they are functioning properly and are compliant with Air Force and Department of Defense standards.

The EOHCAMP is a base-level auditing program used to achieve compliance with federal, state and local regulations by looking at environmental and occupational health and safety programs.

The purpose of a CI is to standardize the way the Air Force conducts operations across the board, including active duty, Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard. The inspection is based on Air Force Instructions along with local, state, federal and Department of Defense requirements.
