1/9/2013 - SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- The Air Force implemented the Management Internal Control Toolset Dec. 31 as the new system of record for organizational self-assessment and checklist management requirements.

Designed by the Air Force Reserve to evaluate organizational effectiveness and ensure compliance with directives, MICT employs tools to self-evaluate and address deficiencies in self-assessment programs.

"It will replace the current 101 database the Air Force Space Command uses as well as any other tracking process used by anyone across the Air Force," said Staff Sgt. Chris Dancy, 50th Space Wing SAP monitor.

MICT is a web-based program available through AF Portal. It has the ability to hold digital copies of supporting documentation, eventually rendering additional duty-binders obsolete.

Training for MICT, which has already begun and will continue through January, is currently concentrated toward commanders, functional area managers and assessors.

"Commanders need to know their way around MICT in order to maintain the efficiency of their self-assessment program," said Dancy. "FAMs and administrators will assign and possibly create checklists."

Training commanders and managers will ensure the program is up and running to the fullest, but everyone will eventually need to be trained.

Once added to the database members, will not be removed until they separate from the Air Force. During a change of station, those loaded in the database will be put into a transition category until the MICT administrator at their next location gains them.
Every member will be loaded into the database regardless of his or her current need for the system.

"Eventually, everyone will have a program at some point that will require access to MICT. No more asking 'what checklist applies to me?'" said Dancy. "With this system, the checklists are assigned by the unit administrators to an assessor. When that member gets ready to do a self-inspection, they will see only the checklists assigned to them.

Upon opening any of their assigned checklists, there are radio buttons and comment blocks to make the paperless process as simple as possible."

If the member's answer to a question causes their program to be out of compliance, the system will require the creation of a deficiency to be tracked and corrected by that member.

To sign up for a class date, or for questions about MICT please contact Dancy at 567-2032 or Randall Sykes at 567-6715.
