Recommendation Supporting Information 18-Apr-05
RC Transformation in North Dakota (AFRC Fargo,
Competing Recommendations and Other Information:
There are no potential or known competing recommendations that could conflict with
JAST #A045 - this is a USA proposal that moves USARC to an ANG Base.
Force Structure Capabilities:
The Reserve Component continues to be an important and necessary part of the Army's
force structure to meet its current and future operational requirements. This
recommendation is consistent with and supports the Army's Force Structure Plan
submitted with the FY 06 Budget Documents, and provides the necessary capacity and
capability to support the units affected by this action. It considers essential manning,
training, organizing, equipping, and sustaining requirements, as well as approved
transformational initiatives to ensure the Army and Department of Defense have the
capabilities necessary to meet mission requirements.
The Department of the Army has more than 4000 Reserve Component facilities across
the United States. Because of the sheer numbers of these facilities, the process the Army
had developed for arriving at a quantitative military value score for its 97 major
installations (including leases) was not practical for its Reserve Component facilities.
Additionally, if measured by the active process, which valued training lands and ranges
among other things, the Reserve Component facilities would not have compared well
against the active installations. For these reasons, it was the military judgment of the
Department of the Army that it needed to craft a unique approach for ascertaining the
overall military value of Reserve Component facilities. A team of functional experts
from Headquarters, Department of the Army, the Office of the State Adjutant General,
and the Army Reserve Regional Readiness Command conducted a military value
assessment of state-owned and Army Reserve sub-threshold facilities. These facilities
were assessed, specifically against DoD Criteria one through four, in their ability to
support joint stationing options that enhance Army and DoD transformation; their ability
to enhance Reserve Component operations training, mobilization and power projection
capabilities; their ability to sustain recruiting and retention; their ability to consolidate
functions wherever appropriate, to include schools, personnel, logistics, and other
management functions; their ability to relocate Reserve Component units and activities
from leased and encroached properties that do not meet anti-terrorism and force-
protection requirements onto established military facilities; and their ability to ensure the
future readiness of Army forces while reducing the long-term costs of sustaining the
base structure. The assessments were certified by the Office of the Adjutant General and
the Army Reserve Regional Readiness Command, validated by the Army Audit Agency,
