AIR FORCEAUDIT AGENCY
AUDIT REPORT

AIR FORCE NUCLEARROADMAP ASSESSMENT
 
Executive Summary
i
INTRODUCTION
Two incidents along with other impairments caused theAir Force to put high level management emphasis on thenuclear mission. In 2006, critical nuclear related inter-continental ballistic missile parts, labeled as helicopterbatteries, were mistakenly sent to Taiwan. In 2007, aB-52 crew mistakenly flew six nuclear weapons fromMinot AFB, North Dakota to Barksdale AFB, Louisiana.As a result of these incidents and subsequent investigations,the Air Force established a Nuclear Task Force to develop anuclear enterprise roadmap. The Task Force published the
roadmap titled “Reinvigorating the Air 
Force Nuclear
Enterprise” (hereafter referred to as the Roadmap) on
24 October 2008. The Roadmap requires an assessmentmethod capable of measuring progress made to improvethe nuclear enterprise through action plans. This methoduses measures of performance and effectiveness (hereafterreferred to as measures) to determine how well theAir
Force is implementing the Roadmap’s objectives and to
determine if the Air Force is accomplishing a safe, secure,effective, and reliable nuclear mission.
OBJECTIVES
We performed this audit because the Secretary of theAir Force made improving the nuclear enterprise the
Service’s
highest priority and to provide immediate inputand recommendations for management actions during theRoadmap development process. Our objective was toevaluate whether the Air Force established an assessmentmethod to adequately evaluate the nuclear enterprise.Specifically, we determined whether Air Force personnelestablished (a) adequate measures to assess Roadmapimplementation status and facilitate accurate reporting tonuclear oversight bodies, and (b) adequate data collectioninternal controls. We plan to perform a follow-on audit tovalidate the accuracy of data collected and reportedthrough the established Roadmap measures.
CONCLUSIONS
 
Air Force nuclear enterprise assessment methodology,while generally adequate, required strengthening.Specifically, Air Force nuclear personnel:Developed measures adequately addressing rootcauses identified in the Roadmap and the measuresshould facilitate reporting to responsible oversightbodies. However, 11 (14 percent) of 79 measuresdid not fully address Roadmap objectives.
