Abstract:

In 1993 President Clinton requested that Congress provide new authority to expedite the reuse of military bases adversely affected by Base Realignment and Closure BRAC actions. The result was a new property transfer method, called an Economic Development Conveyance EDC, which gives greater flexibility to the Department of Defense DoD and affected communities to negotiate a mutually beneficial property transfer. On 17 September 1997, the Letterkenny Industrial Development Authority filed an EDC application for transfer of the Letterkenny Army Depot, a U.S. Army installation slated for closure under BRAC 95. The U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratories was tasked by Headquarters, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to 1 review the EDC application for compliance with DoD rules implementing the Federal EDC policy, 2 analyze the findings, and 3 report to the sponsor.
