The Center for Army Analysis developed and demonstrated a methodology for determining optimal ways to schedule and allocate funding for the clean-up of unexploded ordnance UXO on a large number of formerly used defense sites FUDS, where optimality is defined in terms of Army goals, including health, safety, and environmental protection. The methodology involves formulating and solving a mixed-integer linear programming MIP problem. Analyses of solutions of the MIP problem are presented, showing that the SICLUPS methodology provides the sponsor with a range of choices about which Army UXO goals to emphasize in determining the schedule. It should be possible to apply the methodology to make objective decisions as to how to divide funds for clean-ups among the various Corps of Engineers divisions and districts.
