The Vision: “One Team…One Digital Lifecycle Enterprise”
The Why: The United States Air Force is the most capable and effective airpower in the world. However, potential adversaries are rapidly delivering new capabilities and are threatening, and in some cases surpassing, our military dominance. The increasing time it takes to field new capabilities is the greatest hindrance to maintaining dominance in the future.
The Campaign: The Air Force Materiel Command Digital Campaign is an AFMC coordinated effort to move the activities of our enterprise, government and industry, to modern digital capabilities and processes. The desired end state is a collaborative, integrated digital environment that guides, orchestrates, and delivers the means for each individual across the enterprise to access the data, functions and elements needed to do a his or her job in a purely digital manner. This includes all functions, from acquistion to sustainment and beyond, not just engineering.
The End Game: To deliver capabilities to our Air and Space Force at ever increasing speed and efficiency by designing, sustaining, and modernizing them in an integrated digital environment.

Digital Campaign RFI
The AFMC Digital Campaign has posted an Request for Information (RFI) on the BetaSAM website at https://beta.sam.gov/opp/795c2cd63e6e435eba9d5c4daef93a16/view?keywords=%22digital%20campaign%22&sort=-relevance&index=&is_active=true&page=1.
The RFI includes defining a standard set of Digital Engineering (DE) features that acquisition team members select from to meet their overall acquisition goals and objectives. Prototype, demonstration system and commercial buys may require a modest set of DE features, while major acquisitions for enduring product lines may require a full set of DE features. Acquisitions in between may require a different set of DE features.
The AFMC Digital Campaign has produced a set of slides and other materials available at the BetaSAM link to explain the concept and use of DE features, from Acquisition Strategy to Contract award. The team is requesting feedback on the approach.
Visit the BetaSAM site to learn more.
For more information on the AFMC Digital Campaign, contact the AFMC Digital Campaign team.
The Digital Campaign consists of six Lines of Effort (LOEs). Each LOE is lead by a champion (team lead) and is supervised by an Air Force Life Cycle Management Center general officer and/or Program Executive Officer who helps to maintain the focus and drive the accomplishment of the campaign objectives.
