Abstract : Many circumstances have combined to force a re-evaluation of the traditional idea of how the Army manages its installations and how it accomplishes its mission. The Army has traditionally required a heavy investment in a broadly-based installation infrastructure, much of which is presently approaching functional obsolescence. Moreover, the Army's mission has changed from one of maintaining a strong, globally-deployed deterrent force prepared to fight a prolonged conflict, to one of supporting a smaller, highly mobile force, capable of meeting the challenges of short-duration conflicts and humanitarian assignments. To better deal with these changes, facilities quality, functionality, and criticality to mission must replace the traditional concept of sheer quantity of facilities and services. Installations will be smaller and will contain only those facilities that are unique to the military. Partnerships between military installations and local communities will provide the needs common to both: utilities, waste treatment plants, transportation networks, churches, libraries, schools, and housing. This study describes methods to determine the critical requirements (CORE) of Army installations, in both facilities and services, to determine those requirements that can be purchased from or shared with local communities.
