"Long Title - Type In All Capital Letters"SPECIAL INTEREST ITEMS (SII)

This headquarters operating instruction (HOI) implements AFI90-201, Inspector General Activities and provides instructions on how to establish and process Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) SIIs. This HOI applies to all AFSPC staff agencies.

SUMMARY OF REVISIONS
Updates reference publication.

1. General
Special Interest Items can cover known or suspected problems that do not fit a special subject instruction/policy directive (see attachment 1). Use SIIs to:

1.1. Emphasize areas of concern.

1.2. Determine the extent of suspected problems or if a problem has been solved.

1.3. Evaluate compliance after significant changes to directives.

2. Policy

2.1. Any staff agency may propose a SII.

2.2. AFSPC SIIs do not duplicate existing HQ USAF or TIG SIIs.

2.3. Publication of SIIs are kept to a minimum to preclude excessive special inspections and reporting.

2.4. Limit SIIs in duration, normally not to exceed a 12-month period. If a continuation is desired, or required, the staff OPR must provide justification to the Inspector General for an extension of the SII termination date. Items requiring indefinite emphasis should be incorporated into regular inspection activities.

3. Procedures

3.1. The staff OPR submits the proposed SII to the Inspector General for evaluation and approval. Use format shown in attachment 2.
