Abstract:

Renovating or replacing 168,000 inadequate military family housing units using traditional military construction methods would take over 20 years and cost about 16 billion. In 1996, to improve housing faster and more economically, Congress authorized the Military Housing Privatization Initiative to allow private-sector financing, ownership, operation, and maintenance of military housing. At the request of the Subcommittee on Military Construction, House Committee on Appropriations, GAO examined the reliability of military housing needs assessments, as well as achievement of privatization financial goals and government protections in contract provisions.
