Utilities privatization is considered the preferred method for modernizing and recapitalizing utility systems in the Army. From Fiscal Year FY 1998 to FY 2002, the Army implemented a Utilities Modernization Program that focused on upgrading thermal utilities i.e., central heating and air-conditioning refrigeration plants and the respective distribution systems to the most life-cycle cost-effective technology. The current Utilities Modernization Program from FY08-13 will focus not only on central heating and air-conditioning refrigeration systems, but also on electric, natural gas, potable water, and wastewater systems. This program is supported by initiativesactions under the Army Energy and Water Campaign Plan for Installations. This report outlines a candidate program management strategy for the Utilities Modernization Program and outlines best practices for performing life-cycle cost analyses for central energy plants and each type of utility system either exempt from utilities privatization or pending exemption from privatization.
