Draft Deliberative Document -For Discussion Purposes Only - Do Not Release Under FOIA
BRAC 2005 Infrastructure Steering Group (ISG)
Meeting Minutes of January 9, 2004
The Acting Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics),
Mr. Michael W. Wynne chaired this meeting. The list of attendees is attached.
Mr. Wynne opened the meeting and discussed attendance stating to the maximum
extent practicable ISG members must attend ISG meetings. He then asked Mr. Peter
Potochney, the Director of the OSD BRAC Office, to provide an overview of the BRAC
process to date and an update on the JCSGs. Mr. Potochney used the attached slides to
review the overall BRAC schedule. After some discussion, the ISG agreed to the
following concerning the schedule and, in particular, the scenario development process:
* Scenarios presented by the JCSG for ISG review must be robust and not
predispose the outcome of the final recommendations
* Scenarios must be tied to national security requirements
* Scenarios will be reviewed in stages to ensure all considerations are properly
examined and the scenarios are balanced against the scenarios presented by
other JCSGs and the Military Departments
Mr. Potochney next reviewed the schedule for finalizing the selection criteria. The
ISG affirmed the need to work the process to approve the final criteria expeditiously and
requested that members be notified immediately if comments appear likely to produce a
change in the selection criteria. After posting the final criteria at the Federal Register, the
key staff directors for the following committees will be notified about how DoD
addressed the comments received: Senate and Housc Armed Services Committees,
Senate and House Defense Appropriation Subcommittees, Senate and House Military
Construction Appropriation Subcommittees. The ISG discussed, but did not decide
whether a press release on how DoD addressed the comments was necessary.
Mr. Potochney stated that DoD issued the capacity data call on January 6, 2004.
He stated that the data call was an unprecedented effort for the Department and
commended the hard work of the Data Standardization Team.
Mr. Potochney then updated the ISG on the Joint Cross-Service Groups (JCSGs).
He stated that all of the JCSGs had completed their capacity analysis reports and that
with the exception of the Education and Training JCSG, each report is out for
coordination. He also stated that the Secretary formally approved the Intelligence JCSG.
He informed the ISG that each JCSG was developing its military value analysis approach
and that the ISG will review the approach in a series of meetings in February. The ISG
