Lt. Gen. Arnold Bunch, Military Deputy at the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition, discusses the Air Force’s top priorities, and how the service is modernizing the way they purchase new hardware.


Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson told Government Matters that the Air Force is reforming their acquisition process to stay on the cutting edge. With the Air Force requesting $156 billion for 2019, how will funds be allocated? Lt. Gen. Arnold Bunch, military deputy at the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition, says that the office’s top priorities right now are the “big three” programs.   “The big three being the F-35, the KC-46 and the B-21. Other programs that we’re shifting and making sure align with the national defense strategy are focused on the high-end fight, or denial or competition environment. Modernization of our combat air forces and making sure we’re making investments in space and get at that domain. [We need to] make sure we are able to operate freely and provide that service not only to the military, but also to the civilian world,” Bunch said.
