Abstract:

This report covers a review of selected issues related to the maintenance depot closures and realignments that resulted from decisions made by the Base Commission on Closure and Realignment. It was found that 1 the Department of Defense DOD substantially reduced its savings estimates from closing maintenance depots, but is still overestimating the savings that will probably be achieved 2 the number of employees involuntarily separated as a result of past closure decisions was minimized because of a comprehensive but costly employee assistance program and 3 DOD is not using public-public or public-private competitions as a means of allocating public depot workloads. The report includes recommendations that, if implemented, should enable DOD to more cost-effectively redistribute closing depots woridoads.
