***ATTENTION AIR FORCE SAR PACKAGE SUBMITTING***
Due to COVID-19 and the increase in teleworking (social distancing) we ask that all Air Force SAR packages be temporarily submitted electronically through https://safe.apps.mil DoD safe is safe option for large files. If you have a PKI certificate you can send directly, if you do not then send a request to 429SCMS.SASPO.Workflow@us.af.mil and include your email address and "request a drop off". A "request for drop off" will be returned, use this to submit your SAR package. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
