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 23 March 1998, the Memphis Depot Redevelopment Authority filed an EDC Application for transfer of the Defense Distribution Depot, Memphis, a U.S. Army installation slated in 1995 for closure under BRAC. The U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory was tasked by Headquarters, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to I review the EDC Application for compliance with DoD rules implementing the Federal EDC policy, 2 analyze the findings, and 3 report to the sponsor.
