MEMORANDUM FOR OSD BRAC CLEARINGHOUSE
SUBJECT: OSD BRAC Clearinghouse Tasker 0715 - DCMA
1. Reference response to information request, 27 July 2005, from Mr. Frank Cirillo,
Director, Review and Analysis, BRAC Commission, subject as above.
2. Request/Question: I respectfully request a written response from the Department of
Defense concerning the following requests, which pertain to recommendation H&SA-12:
Based on our visit to DCMA headquarters we found DCMA is in the processes of
renovating space for organizational consolidation. Additionally, we were told that
DCMA's mission would be affected by the planned move given that Fort Lee was not close
to a large airport and the Pentagon.
We also found a disparity between the square footage occupied in leased space, the
space planned in the COBRA model and that planned by Fort Lee. Currently the command
has three locations with approximately 95,000 square feet of space. The COBRA model
estimates 146,000 square feet for the administrative building and apportions a need for an
additional 41,000 square feet for other construction such a small unit headquarter building
and apparently apportions base construction requirements as a result of the planned
relocation of DCMA to Fort Lee.
These construction cost include family housing, indoor physical fitness facility etc. For
a total military construction footprint of 187,000 square feet, this does not take into
consideration the parking required. Given the need for additional VTC facilities Fort Lee
plans to construct an 110,898 square foot administration building with an exercise facility a
cafeteria and other special space to accommodate 431 civilians, 16 military and 65
contractors. We were told that about 35-40 of the contractors were not actually required to
be in the headquarters building.
How was the mission impact of moving DCMA to Fort Lee evaluated? Were alternative
locations such as Fort Belvoir or Quantico considered for DCMA? What factors were used
to select Fort Lee as the proposed site for relocation?
What consideration was given to the avoidance of PCS costs if the command was
located at Fort Belvoir or Quantico? How were PCS costs estimated?
