Summary
The Department of Defense (DoD) manages and operates about 577,000 structures worldwide, valued at about $712 billion. DoD has worked for several years to develop models that can reliably estimate the installation support funds needed to sustain these facilities, and plans to spend over $55 billion to support these facilities and operate its bases in fiscal year 2008. Because GAO has identified support infrastructure as a high-risk area that affects DoD's ability to devote funds to other more critical needs, GAO initiated this review under the Comptroller General's authority. This report discusses the following: (1) the reliability of the annual funding estimates produced by the facilities sustainment model, (2) DoD's progress in meeting funding goals for facility sustainment and recapitalization, (3) the extent to which DoD has addressed deferred facility sustainment funding needs, and (4) the status of DoD's efforts to develop a new installation services model. To address these objectives, GAO reviewed the accuracy and support for the model's key inputs, analyzed pertinent documents, and visited eight selected installations. GAO recommends that DoD take several actions to increase the facilities sustainment model's reliability, address deferred facility sustainment funding requirements, and advance progress in implementing the installation services model. DoD generally agreed with the recommendations
