Our approach in developing the Capital Investment Strategy incorporates the philosophy of we work as an augment the Installation resource. We use an on-line Agile Project Management approach, incorporating a Collaborative solution for document review. 

This allows for the retention of Installation focus, with no long production "breaks" and for a streamlined review process, both resulting in the most topical product being provided to the Installation.

 The process can be undertaken in two parts if deemed necessary. The result of the first phase would be that the Installation could identify the resources needed to correct the databases and to begin the implementation of the Installation facility intent.

 This would not include the phase 2 development of the CIS which identified all program actions to realize the Installation intent and develop the program actions to address the analyzed excesses and deficiencies in regards to the Installation mission to support their known authorized tenants.

  • Process

    The Process builds on the foundation of Installation Data being accurate and reflecting the "ground truth" at the Installation.

    The "Ground Truth" should ideally reflect the Installation's vision for the facilities. This would include an analysis of the facilities to address items such as:

    • Condition
    • Functional Adequacy
    • Location
    • Size
    • Investments made
    • Investments required to bring to Standard.

     This analysis allows for the development of the Installation "intent" as to their facilities. Facility program actions are identified and can include:

    • Divest
    • Demolish
    • EUL
    • Convert use/user
    • Renovate
    • Layaway
    • .........
    This analysis provides for a three-fold answer: The Installation INTENT as to their facilities. A well-defined set of program action required to reflect that INTENT from the Installation to the Enterprise. A solid point of departure to start addressing the next phase of identifying the facility excesses and deficiencies.

     The above part of the process can sometimes be the hardest as there are many conflicting interests amongst the Installation Tenants. The solution to this is, as it has always been a strong involvement by the Installation Leadership and of course vision, as this whole process can last longer than an Installation "administration".


    The next challenge involves the validation and sanitizing of Force Structure data and Programming efforts.

    • Validate that the ASIP accurately reflects all qualified tenant organizations - to include contractors.
    • Solicit data from tenants as to known personnel, equipmet or mission changes.
    • Scrub the PAX Processor, purge ALL forms that are no longer supporting a defensible project.
    • Scrub all SRM, NAF, AAFES, DeCCA, DoDEA projects for validity
    • Run a "what if.." RPLANS scenario based on the adjusted INTENT.

     We should now see the Enterprise view of what facilities excesses and deficits. This will enable the Installation to re-align the programming actions required to address these issues. Remembering that the RPLAN CATCODEs that use the algorithm of existing equals required need to be especially addressed.


    We now have the basis to develop programming actions.

  • Notional Timeline

    The time lines depend on certain factors. The main factor being to involvement of the Installation. ALL dates are notional.

    Garrison Review times could be addressed – on the example, the review periods constitute 52% of the time.

     On-site (blue) will be very intensive and will really need the select Installation personnel to be available. Another on-site may be warranted in the later stages, especially if a presentation is requested.

     This representation is to show how long the development of the CIS could take. Adjustments can obviously be made.

  • Resources

    Of course first of all, the Installation need to decide to embark on the journey and fund the effort.

     The resources needed are commitment by the Installation to the effort. This means providing data and involvement in the process.

     The Installation team should probably include:

    • DPW
    • Master Planner
    • Real Property Accountable Officer
    • ERMD
    • Representatives of: PAIO
    • Major unit G-1/S-1
    • Major Tenant personnel/TDA managers
    • Garrison G-4/G-5/G-6/G-8
    • Stationing Offcer
    Some of the data needed for the initial scrub:
    • Real Property Data from the Installation pespective and from the Enterprise perspective (GFEBS)
    • List of facilities for the Centralized Demo program
    • Latest ISR-I data to show the "MISSION CODE" or facility adequcy and of course condition.
    • Need an evaluation of the confidence in that data. ASIP Data
    • PAX Directory listing and a run of the PRIMFAC query from CAPCES for those forms
    • SRM Project listings (approved/submitted for funding) Identification of any other facility actions.
A Program Action can be described as any resource required to change the capacity, use, condition, adequacy, availability or reporting of a facility
