Abstract : All the Air Force Materiel Command bases are experiencing excess capacity. Through re-engineering and applying the reinventing government concept, we can turn the idle time into productive time. This goal will be achieved by establishing a flexible work force. It will expand and contract based upon obtained workload levels from other services, state and local governments, and even the private sector. Operating instructions need to be developed, which include the following: full and open competition, a dedicated cost accounting system, and applying reimbursement methodologies. Both the local base and DoD as a whole will benefit. The total base may be kept off the Base Realignment and Closure Commission list. The DoD will benefit by requirement cost reduction due to increased competition and achieve private sector technology integration. Finally, I recommend my proposal for a flexible work force be considered for implementation with a step by step approach. (AN)
