Abstract : This report responds to your request that we examine selected aspects of the services' management of facilities infrastructure and their use of demolition as an approach to reducing excess facilities and avoiding unnecessary operating costs. This report addresses (1) the services' funding obligations for maintenance and repair over the last 10 years, changes in building square footage in space to be maintained, and the impact of the changes on facility maintenance and repair; (2) the potential for demolition to reduce excess facilities infrastructure and avoid recurring costs; (3) the services' plans for demolition; and (4) their overall infrastructure management strategies.
