Abstract : The Department of Defense (DOD) is planning to reallocate depot maintenance workloads from depots recommended for closure or realignment by the 1995 Defense Base Closure and Realignment (BRAC) Commission. DOD is considering privatization-in-place for several of these depots. The report review plans to privatize workloads in place rather than move the workload to remaining depots. Specifically, the report is reviewing each of the services' privatization-in-place initiatives to determine the (1) impact on excess depot capacity and operating costs at the remaining industriai facilities, (2) cost-effectiveness of planned privatization-in-place options, and (3) compliance with statutory requirements affecting transfers of depot maintenance workloads to the private sector. Although the work is still ongoing, it reports the Navy's plans to privatize-in-place its depot workload at Louisville, Kentucky. This information was needed because the Navy notified Congress of its intent to award contracts for the Louisville, Kentucky, depot workload using other than competitive procedures. It will be reporting separately on privatization-in-place initiatives involving Air Force and Army depots.
