Defense Infrastructure: Greater Management Emphasis Needed to Increase the Services' Use of Expanded Leasing Authority
GENERAL ACCOUNTING OFFICE WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
The military services face significant challenges in addressing facility sustainment, restoration, and modernization needs with limited funds. These challenges are magnified by the 20 to 25 percent of the Department of Defenses real property that it views as not being needed to meet current mission requirements, but that nevertheless adds to costs. To reduce these costs and acquire additional resources to maintain its facilities, the Department has developed a multi-part strategy involving base realignment and closure, housing and utility privatization, competitive sourcing of non-inherently governmental functions, and demolition of facilities that are no longer needed. The Departments strategy also involves leasing its underused real property to reduce infrastructure and base operating costs.
