502nd Air Base Wing public affairs offices now using PA Productivity Portal

By Steve Elliott 502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

The 502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs offices throughout Joint Base San Antonio have begun using the PA Productivity Portal, or P3, to submit work orders for photographic, video, audio, graphics and editorial support.

These services can now be requested at This replaces the submission of the Air Force Form 833, which was formerly used to request the above services.

The PA Productivity Portal, or P3, is a mission-management tool for Department of the Air Force public communications professionals to ingest and manage support requests, coordinate timely operations, track equipment acquisition and usage, plan targeted communications and centralize operational analysis and improvement of PA methodologies.

The 502nd ABW PA offices are part of a beta test of the P3 system, as one of several hand-picked units in the Air Education and Training Command for an initial test use phase.

By centralizing key data tools, PA can monitor daily operations and make data-driven decisions as part of its permanent management strategy.
