Scott privatized housing undergoes mandated third-party inspections

As part of an Air Force inspection initiative, all privatized housing units attached to Scott will undergo third-party assessments between now and Oct. 14 to gather information on the current state of privatized and government owned housing inventory.

The inspections will be conducted by certified home inspectors independent from the housing project owner and government. They will be assessing unit interiors, building systems, common areas, building exteriors, equipment drainage and landscaping to identify and address any health and life safety deficiencies.

All residents within Scott privatized housing should have received a notification from the 375th Air Mobility Wing military housing office with the inspection date window for their neighborhood as well as details on scheduling appointments, information regarding how the inspection will be conducted, and points of contact for any questions. They can also be reached at 375.ces.ceh@us.af.mil.

Residents are reminded that this initiative does not conflict with their housing office team and to continue routine contact and maintenance requests throughout and after the inspection process.

This Air Force initiative began earlier this year in response to guidance contained in Fiscal Year 2020 and 2021 National Defense Authorization Acts. It is one of several NDAA mandates designed to improve the government-owned and privatized military housing programs.

"Providing safe and affordable housing to our servicemembers and their families is a top priority for the DAF," said Yvonne Brabham, Air Force Housing Division technical director. "We are always looking for new ways to optimize the base housing program to ensure Airmen, Guardians and their families are provided what they need to thrive at work and at home."  

With an estimated completion of Sept. 30, 2024, the DAF initiative will have inspected approximately 55,000 units.
