DOD manages more real property than any other entity in the world-more than 320,000 buildings, tens of thousands of miles of roads, and 1.1 million square yards of pavement. Appropriations for operation and maintenance OM provide money to maintain this property, largely through funding for real property maintenance and base operations. DOD uses real property maintenance funds to maintain and repair buildings, structures, warehouses, roadways, runways, railway tracks, and utility plants. Base operations funding is used for services such as utilities, base communications, snow removal, security, and recreation. Unit training and operations funds are used to increase units proficiency through flying and ground operations training and provide units with resources such as fuel, support equipment, and spare parts for equipment to meet their mission requirements.
