Contents Background -- The Army's BCT stationing decision was informed by quantitative and qualitative analyses and included an effort to obtain community input, which may provide benefits for future stationing decisions -- The Army expects the military value analysis model will be an enduring tool but has not established guidance or consistent processes related to the use of the model within its stationing process -- Conclusions.
Summary As part of its plan to reduce its active duty force by 80,000 personnel by 2017, the Army will be inactivating 10 BCTs currently stationed in the United States and reorganizing the remaining BCTs. The Army conducted analyses of different stationing options, which included the use of its military value analysis model to compare installations based on their ability to support BCTs. GAO was asked to review the decision making process the Army used for its BCT stationing decision, including its military value analysis model. This report (1) describes the analyses the Army conducted to make its BCT decision and (2) evaluates the extent to which the Army has established guidance and processes related to the use of the military value analysis model as a part of its stationing decisions. GAO reviewed the Army's stationing guidance, current and previous versions of the military value analysis model, documents on the BCT decision, and spoke with cognizant officials.
