arms contracting innovations


ARMS Contracting Innovations
  • The Government has No Privity of Contract with Subcontractor / Tenants.
  • The Facility Use Contractor negotiates with tenants for:
    • Applicable facilities usage rates
    • Site improvements to facilitate tenant operations
    • Application of appropriate financial incentives
    • Terms of tenant facility usage
  • The Facility Contractor then negotiates with the ARMS PM.
  • The ARMS PM emphasizes quick response to Facility Contractor tenant placement requests.
  • ARMS incentives fund the Facility Use Contractor, who in turn applies the funds to tenant site improvements.

facility use lessons learned
Facility Use - Lessons Learned
  • Facilities and equipment are assets
  • Commercial users will pay to use assets
  • Commercial users will commit more for long term use
  • Recent contracts utilize long term facility use contracts(25 year)
  • Long term facility use agreements look more like leases
  • Both leases under 10 USC 2667 and facility use contracts are proven techniques to reduce costs by allowing commercial use of Army assets.
  • Army installations and organizations need to find a more effective way to integrate these solutions and use the best tool for the job
