Re: BI-0168,CT-0685,COBRA Installation Data for Buckley Annex (ARPC)
Requester: Karl Gingrich, Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission staff
Question: During a review of the DFAS (H&SA-37) recommendation and the Active &
Reserve Personnel Center (H&SA-33) recommendation, we have found the BOS,
Sustainrnent and Recapitalization information for ARPC, CO to be suspect. E.g., the
BOS costs for ARPC are shown to be $5,593/year. Believe the Air Force is best suited to
answer this as opposed to the JCSG, however they should be informed of the situation.
Please provide the correct costs for operating, Buckley Annex, CO, as well as the
ARPC (if they are different). Thank you.
Answer: The BOS cost information in COBRA was obtained using a standard method
that generally applies to Air Force installations. However, we have determined that BOS
for ARPC and the DFAS site are accounted and paid differently. In addition, data was
col]]ected as of 30 Sep 2003 and did not include all costs paid for ARPC and DFAS. We
have obtained data for FY 2003, 2004, and 2005 and have attached it for your use. The
costs are shown for two program elements (PE). PE 35879 includes costs normally
attributed to BOS. PE 31378 includes costs normally attributed to sustainment. In
addition, these costs include no communications costs, normally part of BOS. Security
costs are accounted separately on the spreadsheet and are paid by DFAS for all parties on
We hope this information is helpful.
