Within the cooperative agreement there are 6 requirement/objectives: Coaching and Sports Involvement; Recruiting; Logistics; Ticketing; Sports Conference Administration Involvement; and Civic Outreach.Fiscal Year 2018
The original, existing cooperative agreement, which is the only cooperative agreement ever awarded under this statute, was awarded in 2013. The CA specified the original performance period(s) to include a one year basic period and four additional one-year optional performance periods (annual funding periods) with annual Air Force approval of the CA program considerations. In 2018, the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Manpower and Reserve Affairs (SAF/MR) approved extending the current five year CA indefinitely, based on approval of current program considerations, a continuing need and the annual incremental funding allocated for this program. Each year’s annual funding period (incremental funding) is determined by the previous year's funded amount, an agreed to revised budget, and available appropriated funding (APF) and funding from revenue activities which are assigned in the program objectives. The SecAF delegated all authorities to SAF/MR, which includes the approval of the funding vehicle (the CA), the program considerations, and the responsibility for overseeing the AFAAC business activities. APF amounts associated with the CA are expected to grow, consistent with an inflation average of 6%. The program will continue in FY 2019 and beyond.
