Abstract : The following schedule was developed to minimize the impact on Air Force mission capability while placing priority on closing the thirteen bases and realigning one base as recommended by the 1991 Base Closure Commission and directed by the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act, P.L. 101-510. It is the Air Force's objective to close the thirteen bases and realign one base at the earliest opportunity to take advantage of savings provided by reductions to Air Force end strength, reductions to base operating support costs, and anticipated proceeds from sale of real property at the closure bases. The savings associated with these closure actions are for display purposes only and will accrue in other Air Force appropriations. The funding profiles associated with the schedule have been programmed to accomplish this objective. Also included are those requirements generated by the 1991 Base Closure Commission changes to the 1988 Base Closure Commission recommendations. The defense base closure account which funds the bases recommended for closure by the 1988 Commission will expire on September 30, 1995. The defense base closure account of 1990 will be used to fund ongoing environmental restoration and property disposal actions for the BRAC 88 closures and realignments after that date. These costs are shown in the 1990 account, and are separately identified in this portion of the budget submission. To facilitate the closure of bases as well as the transition of land and facilities to community use, Base Transition Coordinator (BTC) positions were established in FY 1993 by the Department of Defense (DOD).
