Abstract : The report is intended to provide a broad overview of a Base Operating Support Contract (BOSC) for facilities operations and maintenance in a medium size public works activity under the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFACENGCOM) of the Department of the Navy, BOSC are part of facility support contracts and are used to perform all base facilities operations and maintenance support functions. BOSC are currently being used by NAVFACENGCOM in a number of naval installations to improve response on public works services and to reduce costs. According to the Department of Defense's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), privatizing base support functions could free money at a time when the services will need to begin funding major Research and Development (R&D) projects for new and modem equipment for the services. By hiring civilian companies to perform ordinary duties, a cost reduction of one-third of the total budget for base functions is estimated. The JCS estimates private companies could run military bases for twenty-five (25) to thirty (30) percent less than it costs the military.
