By Order of the Secretary of the Air Force (SecAF), Air Force Instruction (AFI) 23-101 Materiel Management, is re-designated Department of the Air Force (DAF) Instruction (DAFI) 23101, and this DAF Guidance Memorandum (DAFGM) immediately implements changes to DAFI 23-101. Compliance with this memorandum is mandatory. To the extent its direction is inconsistent with other Air Force publications, the information herein prevails in accordance with DAFI 33-360, Publications and Forms Management.

This memorandum includes significant changes and must be reviewed in its entirety. Changes incorporate Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness corrections; updated guidance for Defense Property Accountability System processes; Force Activity Designator management; Rewarehousing Projects; and WRM Direct Vendor Delivery Process. This guidance is applicable to the entire DAF, including all civilian employees and uniformed members of the United States Space Force (USSF), Regular Air Force, the Air Force Reserve, the Air National Guard, the Civil Air Patrol when conducting missions as the official Air Force Auxiliary, and those with a contractual obligation to abide by the terms of DAF issuances. Note: All references to United States Air Force (USAF) terminology, units, and positions will also apply to the equivalent in the USSF, as appropriate. For example, references to Airmen will also apply to Guardians. References to MAJCOMs or NAFs will apply to field commands. References to wings will also apply to deltas or garrisons. Air Staff roles and responsibilities (i.e. AF/A1) may also apply to the equivalent Office of the Chief of Space Operations (Space Staff) office (i.e. SF/S1), as appropriate.

The use of an asterisk (*) identifies a substantive change over the previous guidance. It becomes void after one year has elapsed from the date of this memorandum, upon publication of an interim change to, or rewrite of DAFI 23-101, whichever is earlier.
