Abstract:

This report responds to your request that we review important issues associated with the four rounds of military base realignments and closures BRAC beginning in 1988. Through closure rounds in 1988, 1991, 1993, and 1995, the Department of Defense DOD expected to significantly reduce its domestic infrastructure and provide needed dollars for high-priority defense programs such as modernization. This report addresses 1 DODS progress in completing action on BRAC recommendations and transferring unneeded base property to other users, 2 the precision of DODs estimates of BRAC costs and savings, 3 environmental cleanup progress and estimated associated costs, and 4 reported trends in economic recovery in communities affected by base closures.
