Abstract : The Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process has impacted people and cities throughout United States. Many municipalities are directly affected by base closures that occur within their borders. Of major concern to those cities and states is the economic impact a base closure will have on their local economies. In an effort to prevent bases from being closed many city and state officials and private citizens- have turned to Federal officials for assistance. The Monterey Peninsula is one of the communities affected by the BRAC process, with the closure of Fort Ord and the recommended closure of the Defense Language Institute (DLI). The primary reason DLI was slated for closure by BRAC was excessive Base Operation Support (BASEOPS) Costs. The City of Monterey adopted a unique alternative approach to prevent closure of DLI. Monterey City officials developed a proposal to provide these costly BASEOPS serv with the existing City infrastructure and presented it to the Department of Defense (DOD). This thesis analyze this proposal, assess its feasibility and propose other contractual alternatives to reduce BASEOPS costs. The objective of the research is to present and evaluate possible alternatives for acquiring BASEOPS services and to recommend the most effective method to control BASEOPS costs. Perhaps this information can be used to prepare for future BRAC-type assessments of DLI to prevent its closure.
