CI ratings: AU 'excellent,' wing 'sat'

9/23/2011 - MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, GUNTER ANNEX, Ala. -- After months of hard work, Maxwell celebrated the end of the Air Education and Training Command compliance inspection with noisemakers, horns and hamburgers on Monday.

Cowbells, whistles and sirens filled Polifka Auditorium when the Air University learned it had earned an "excellent" rating.

"This is a great report, and I am very pleased," said Lt. Gen. David Fadok, the Air University commander and president.

The 42nd Air Base Wing learned of its "satisfactory" rating during an outbrief at the base theater and then hosted a cookout at the Maxwell Event Center to celebrate the base's hard work.

"You did really well. Congratulations," said Col. Brian Killough, 42nd ABW commander. "I'm proud of all of you."

Last week, AETC inspectors reviewed how well AU and the wing follow Air Force instructions and applicable guidance and policy. For the first time, the inspection team rated the Air University and the wing separately.

Fadok and Killough recognized the months of work Maxwell dedicated to preparing for the inspection.

"The results represent a tremendous amount of effort on your part," Fadok told the audience at Polifka. "You all were the ones who did the hard work. I am so very, very proud to be a part of this amazing team. Thank you very, very much for giving it your all."

Each agency has room for improvement, and Killough encouraged everyone to continue focusing on compliance. "We're going to move out, do better and correct the deficiencies," he said.

Fadok also urged Maxwell to continue the momentum and maintain compliance through a robust self-inspection program. "We are the gold standard, and we will maintain the gold standard."
