Abstract : The Department of Defense FSRM Program helps to ensure that Department facilities are maintained and comply with standards necessary for meeting national security objectives and provide, operate, and sustain suitable housing, medical, and base facilities for the warfighter and their families in a cost-effective manner. Construction and repair projects in the Facility Infrastructure Investment Program will use sustainable materials with an objective of maximizing life expectancy of military facilities and infrastructure, thereby maximizing cost-effectiveness within the program. For example, Recovery Act funding for FSRM will upgrade existing family housing and buildings in the Military Health System, so they are safe and modernized. Use of sustainable materials in these facilities will help minimize the maintenance costs associated with them upon completion of the projects. Targeted measures for the program are aligned with the objectives set forth in the Recovery Act by enhancing job creation, job retention, improving military facilities, and providing projects that will help improve the quality of life for troops and their families. As a result, these investments will support the goals of improving family housing, improving patient outcomes, providing better clinical performance, and enhancing the quality of care provided to our active duty members, retirees, and their families. FSRM projects are constructed on a much faster time scale than Military Construction (MILCON) since many of these projects are ready for immediate execution and have on the shelf design that requires little acquisition time. Many projects also consist of only a single component (e.g., roof, pavement), so they are quick to contract and construct. The longstanding FSRM evaluation and prioritization processes ensure that proposed projects are evaluated and selected to maximize the greatest benefit to the warfighter and thereby to the public.
