Abstract:

This report presents findings on ways to contract for geothermal development on military lands. The report concludes that the Federal Acquisition Regulation is inapplicable and inappropriate for private geothermal development because such development does not use appropriated funds nor does it procure a supply or service. It recommends that the Navy develop a new legal instrument called a license agreement, establish a demonstration project to test it, and reassign responsibility for geothermal contracting to a contracting office with the experience to respond flexibly and rapidly to geothermal developments unique requirements.
