Optimizing Army Base Realignment and Closure
Dell, Robert F.
MetadataShow full item record
In April 1997, the United States Army announced that savings had finally overtaken costs in closing or realigning 803 of its installations worldwide. This milestone occurred in the ninth year of a 13-year program approved by Congress and Presi- dents Reagan, Bush, and Clinton. The cost of this program is $5.3 billion, and when complete, the army expects annual sav- ings of $996 million in perpetuity. A mixed-integer linear pro- gram, BRACAS (base realignment and closure action schedu- ler), helped the army budget for the 29 closures and 11 realignments approved by Congress and President Clinton in 1995. The army used BRACAS to schedule optimally the $2 billion in BRAC costs for these 40 installations over the six- year period mandated by Congress; associated annual savings will be $360 million.
