The re-designation as a complex is part of an effort by Hill AFB's parent organization, Air Force Materiel Command, to find efficiencies and save tax dollars by consolidating overhead and standardizing processes across the command.
Current missions conducted at Hill Air Force Base will continue, but without added layers of management. With the re-designation the complex will report to the Air Force Sustainment Center at Tinker AFB, Okla. The existing program offices at Hill AFB will be aligned to the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio.
The command-wide restructure is estimated to save $109 million annually.
