Abstract : The military construction program for the active Army in terms of budget plans shown in the schedules of this title are summarized and tabulated. The MCA major construction program is one of the most visible means of improving the working and living conditions of the Army Family. This program provides for military construction projects in the United States and overseas as authorized in currently effective Military Construction Acts and in the new Authorization Request which will be presented to the Congress early in 1995. This request funds the Army's most critical facilities needs within the context of changing force structure and fiscal constraints. The Army's facilities strategy is to: (1) Focus the Investment; (2) Reduce Facility Inventory; and (3) Maintain the Inventory. The focus of investment is on revitalization of facilities at installations which remain after base closure actions. In the current year, investment is primarily directed toward facilities to improve Strategic Mobility, troop housing, and environmental and safety requirements. (MM)
