Abstract : RAND was tasked to examine the costs of operating Forces Command (FORSCOM) installations and to consider how these costs might be reduced. We approached this problem in three ways. First, we examined expenditure data for base operations at the major FORSCOM installations and attempted to develop a general cost model. Second, we interviewed garrison personnel about cost-reduction efforts, reengineering approaches, and Installation XXI initiatives. Third, we investigated the relative costs and benefits of contracting functions at installations instead of providing them with civilian employees.
