Abstract:

This report responds to your request concerning the privatization-in-place of select Department of Defense industrial facilities that were closed as a result of base realignment and closure decisions made in 1993 and 1995. Privatization-in-place is a concept in which a private sector entity takes over the operations of a facility that was once operated by the government. To date, privatization-in-place has been associated with the base closure process and used by the Department for transferring industrial work to the private sector. With legislative constraints affecting the Departments ability to close military facilities, privatization-in-place is not likely to be used outside the base realignment and closure process.
