Abstract : Seventy-five percent of the Army is now based in the United States, and it is the job of the installations to support and facilitate the rapid deployment of this combat power. However, since 1989 the Army has been reduced by 469,000 soldiers and 151,000 civilians. While base closure efforts have been initiated to keep pace with Army force structure reductions, changes in the internal organizational structure of installations have predominantly occurred locally and sporadically. This paper examines the typical operations at an Army garrison, provides examples on how selected functions can be more effectively accomplished, discusses possible changes in garrison structure and staffing, and identifies policy changes that should be considered for added efficiencies and streamlining. Savings of $1.5 billion, elimination of 6,200 civilian spaces, and the cut or redirection of 9,500 military positions can be achieved.
