Abstract:

The Army has decided to close Fort Douglas, Utah, and to reassign the area support mission for Army Reserve units to Fort Carson, Colorado. The Army estimated the action would result in one-time costs of 2.56 million and annual recurring savings of 792,000. GAO estimated one-time costs at 2.65 million and the annual savings at 580,000. Both the Army and GAO recognized several disadvantages to the realinement, the major one being probable deterioration of support to Army Reserve units in Idaho, Montana, and Utah. The Army is considering specific personnel assignments that could minimize the negative impact on Reserve support and possibly reduce one-time realinement costs
