Abstract:

The excess capacity that currently exists within DoD maintenance depots presents an extra burden of overhead expenses. The remedies fall into two categories. The first represents what the Services have been doing through the base realignment and closure process closing and moving workload to the fewer remaining depots. The second approach is to find a new use for the depots through commercializing their facilities, and bringing in work from outside the current DoD maintenance system. This article discusses both proposed solutions, their potential problems, and the changes needed to ensure their success.
