12/11/2012 - SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- The 50th Space Wing recently earned an overall grade of excellent during the command's Consolidated Unit Inspection administered by the Air Force Space Command Inspector General.

Members of the AFSPC IG team inspected the wing including its geographically separated units Nov. 28 to Dec 10.

Using a five-tier structure, each unit had the potential to be rated either unsatisfactory, marginal, satisfactory, excellent or outstanding.

According to the IG definition, an excellent rating indicates that performance or an operation exceeds mission requirements, procedures and activities are carried out in a superior manner and resources and programs are very efficiently managed and relatively free of deficiencies.

"The professionalism and support you provided to the IG not only during the inspection, but before is a testament to the professionalism throughout the entire wing," said Col. Robert Skinner, AFSPC IG during the CUI outbrief Dec. 10. "For a major wing in the first compliance inspection with the new five-tier system to get an excellent, be proud of that effort."

Of 47 major graded areas, 50 SW received eight outstanding ratings. In addition, 31 professional performers, 21 professional teams and 45 strengths were identified.

"The way this wing pulled together was phenomenal," said Col. James Ross, 50 SW commander. "This was a team effort. Once again you proved why we are the best wing in Air Force Space Command. I believe that this team can do anything it puts its mind to, and you just confirmed that for me."

CUIs are conducted to assess areas mandated by law, as well as mission areas identified by senior Air Force and major command leadership as critical or important to the health and performance of a unit.

"What we really want out of an inspection of this magnitude is to be a more effective, efficient and executable wing," said Chief Master Sgt. Patrick McMahon, 50 SW command chief. "I truly believe that we are."

In addition, a Logistics Compliance Assessment Team inspected Schriever's logistics professionals who earned an excellent rating. The 50 SW Judge Advocate also went through an Article 6 inspection at the same time the CUI was taking place and earned the rating of in compliance with comments. Only eight minor findings were identified from 300 checklist items.
