The Army is developing a capability to economically identify and evaluate the seismic capacity and strengthening strategies for essential and high potential loss facilities at Army installations, i.e., Mission Affordable Seismic Strengthening MASS. One of the technological needs to achieve MASS is the development of a facility seismic hazard indexing procedure to identify existing facilities that are potentially seismically hazardous based on the information in the real property inventory for Army installations. The real property inventory screening procedure described in this volume is an integral part of the facility seismic hazard indexing procedure. The screening procedure is necessary in order 1 to reduce inventoried buildings to a more manageable number, and 2 to aid in identifying the more important buildings on the basis of user-specified criteria for the earliest date of acquisition, minimum acquisition cost, and minimum building area. The screening procedure excludes from the real property inventory those buildings which do not conform with the specified criteria, and provides listings of the buildings remaining in the inventory in formats and sequences that will help in setting priorities for conducting seismic safety evaluations. However, the screening procedure does not include seismic hazard priority-ranking of the results nor does it adjust the acquisition costs to reflect the effects of inflation.
