Abstract : The Office of the Comptroller of the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) has proposed the formation of a centralized organization which will assume responsibility for certain contract management, contractor payment, internal payroll management and other financial management activities on behalf of many widely scattered DLA activities across the United States. The new organization would be called the DLA Finance Center (DFC). The DFC is proposed to be staffed by up to 2,7OO persons, trained largely in the areas of financial management and data processing. No organizations would be closed, and affected employees would be given the opportunity to transfer to the new DFC or to remain in a similar position at their present location. More than 300 possible locations for the DFC were initially screened for factors such as cost of living, personnel costs, workforce availability, facilities costs, and existing DLA support availability. Columbus, OH was selected as the location best meeting all goals. This environmental assessment was prepared to examine the proposed action, to include the initial office facilities, for their potential to result in significant, adverse environmental consequences, as covered in 40 CFR 1500-1508, and implemented for the DLA in DLA Regulation 1000.22.
