Draft Deliberative Document - For Discussion Purposes Only - Do Not Release Under FOIA
This value is used for determining Scenario Final Year; and it or Scenario Final Year are used in the
following algorithms: Military Constniction Time-Phasing, Program Management Costs, Breakeven
Year, Shiut Down Time Phasing, Sustainment Costs ,Savings and Net Costs and Recapitalization
This value is used by the Scenario Error Report to check for data inconsistent with closures (personnel
remaining, enclaves, etc.) but allowable for deactivations.
Time/Date of Data:
This appears on most output reports.
This modifies the Time/Date of Data field.
Auto Time -Phase:
This determines the method used to calculate Military Constnlction Time-Phasing and Shut Down Time-
Phasing. The following algorithms use some form of time phasing: Family Housing Constnrction Costs,
Family Housing Operations Costs, Family Housing Operations Savings, Housing Allowance Costs
Savings, and Net C.osts; Military Constniction Costs, Mothball Costs, Sustainment Costs, Savings,
Net Costs, Recapitali7ation Costs and Savinsand TRICARE Costs.
Here’s what’s next.
