What is a Private Organization (PO)?
According AFI 34-223, “POs are self-sustaining special interest groups, set up by people acting exclusively outside the scope of any official capacity as officers, employees, or agents of the Federal Government. They operate on Air Force Installations with the written consent of the installation commander. POs are not Federal entities and are not to be treated as such.”


Private Org. vs. Unofficial Org.
AFI 34-223, paragraph 2.2: “Small unofficial activities, like coffee funds, flower funds, sunshine funds, and other small operations are generally not considered POs. However, if their current assets (which include cash, inventories, receivables, and investments) exceed a monthly average rate of $1,000 over a 3-month period, the activity/organization must become a PO, discontinue on-base operations, or reduce its current assets below the $1,000 threshold.

  While unofficial orgs. are required to become a registered PO with FSS Resource Management once the $1,000 threshold is met, they do have the option to become a PO beforehand, if they wish.
