Abstract : This report is the final product from the Survey of Resources Available for Estimating the Environmental Costs of Major Defense Acquisition Programs. It provides assessments of the most promising cost analysis tools based on testing their capabilities against the cost breakdown structure developed earlier in the project. The most substantial reviews cover HAZMAT, HCAS MCACES and RACER-ENVEST. In addition, the report includes reviews of one or two pages for 23 technical reports with some value for environmental cost estimating. Finally, building on the foundation of these assessments, the report lays out short- and mid-term plans for filling gaps in the tool set. (AN)
