Abstract : In 1993 President Clinton requested that Congress provide new authority to expedite the reuse of military bases adversely affected Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) actions. The result was a new property transfer method, called an Economic Development Conveyance (EDC), which gives greater flexibility to the Department of Defense (DoD) and affected communities to negotiate a mutually beneficial property transfer. On 4 August 1994 the City of Sacramento, CA, filed an initial EDC application for the Sacramento Army Depot Activity (SADA). As amended on 10 November 1994, the application indicated that Packard Bell Electronics, Inc., sought to lease over 1 million square feet of warehouse facilities on the depot. The U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratories (USACERL, Champaign, IL) was tasked by Headquarters, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to (1) review the City's application for compliance with Department of Defense (DoD) rules implementing the Federal EDC policy, (2) analyze the findings, and (3) report to the sponsor. The review group recommended acceptance of the City's application contingent on specified clarifications. Volume I of this report comprises an Executive Summary of the group's findings. Volume 2 comprises the EDC application package submitted to the Army by the City of Sacramento. (AN)
