Air Force Oversight

The overall sponsor for PAF activities is the Department of the Air Force. The sponsor oversees and monitors PAF's research and is ultimately responsible for public accountability. The Air Force Steering Group (AFSG) for PAF, which is chaired by the Vice Chief of Staff and includes senior representatives from the Air Force Secretariat and the Air Staff, establishes overall objectives for PAF, provides broad supervision and policy guidance, and periodically evaluates the entire research program.

Current members of the AFSG are listed below.
