Since January, Moody Airmen have spent several hours ensuring they're prepared for the Logistics Compliance Assessment Program inspection that is taking place May 16 to19.

The LCAP is a detailed inspection of the logistics processes in the 23rd Maintenance Group, 23rd Logistics Readiness Squadron and 476th Maintenance Squadron.

"The LCAP provides leadership at all levels an evaluation of our unit's ability to perform key logistics processes," said Capt. Jared Young, 23rd Maintenance Operation Squadron operations officer. "We want processes to be done in a safe and technically compliant manner."

While the inspectors are here they will perform anywhere from 2,500 to 3,000 inspections in just four days.

"Airmen worked hard to prepare for this inspection," said Captain Young. "They have more than 8,000 checklists that they use to make sure they are doing things properly."

Inspectors look at many things including the toolboxes the airmen work out of, the way they document equipment forms and how they follow procedures.

"Our inspectors are not just here to inspect but to train as well," said Chief Master Sgt. Kurtis Ott, Air Combat Command LCAP team superintendent. "We want to make sure that if an Airman performs a task wrong, they understand how to do it the right way."

An LCAP inspection is done every two years and the base is given a grade. The grading scale is based on a five-tier rating ranging from outstanding to unsatisfactory.

The inspection ends on May 19 and the team will brief Wing leadership on the results on May 20.

The LCAP inspection will tell commanders whether or not they are in compliance with Air Force instructions, technical orders and certain checklists. The results of the inspection will help leadership keep their units prepared for the critical combat, search and rescue mission here at Moody.
