Eight of the current IRSPs have parts common to other colocated IRSPs and, therefore, may have improper offset calculations.
Bases with in-place readiness spares packages (IRSP) can, and do, have base-requisitioning objectives (RO) less than their total wartime requirement (TWR).
As a result, these bases have an IRSP instead of a mobility readiness spares package.
The IRSP level authorization is determined based on the POS thorization; that is, the IRSP level is set such that IRSP plus the RBL (minus one) equals the TWR.
Recall that the IRSP authorization is set to the TWR minus the RBL minus one.
The base RO of six is the sum of the RBL and IRSP level, four plus two, and exceeds the minimum need, the TWR of five.
Thus, with the MRSPs getting more than half the total aircraft and flying hours, one would expect the IRSPs to get less than half, but there is another twist.
To support wartime operations, the Air Force computes, for each strategic airlift aircraft type (C-5, C-17, and C-141), two kinds of wartime readiness spares packages (RSP), an in-place readiness spares package (IRSP) for each MOB, and a mobility readiness spares package (MRSP) to support en route and deployed location operations.
The IRSP computation assumes that the PSP responds immediately to demands from the forward locations.
For the purposes of the AMC IRSP computation, an 8-day resupply time (depot to MOB) (not counting delays) was used.
Using this assumption does not introduce significant error because the IRSP stock was initialized to the pipeline.
The current computation builds an IRSP for each MOB and a single MRSP to support all en route operations.
