Presentation Transcript

  • Mission: Reduce Army’s inventory of excess facilities.

  • Objectives:

  • Execute effectively

  • Demonstrate cost effectiveness

  • Promote sustainable demolition

  • Minimize labor demands upon installation personnel

  • IMA Proponent (John Peasley, 703-602-4488)

  • Huntsville Ctr (HNC) PM: Harold Merschman, 256-895-1369


  • Execute effectively.

    • Centralized support by HNC for determining requirements, project priority and funding, tracking and reporting.

    • Decentralized acquisition and execution management

  • Demonstrate cost effectiveness.

    • Show cost savings achieved though HNC programmatic oversight and technical assistance to DPW / U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Districts responsible for project execution.

    • Early intervention in projects having estimated cost that appear excessive

Mission approach cont
Mission Approach (cont.)

  • Promote sustainable demolition.

    • Identify and advocate best practices that minimize landfill consumption, consistent with practical, reasonably priced means and methods.

    • Give priority of funding to projects using best practices

    • Early intervention in projects that do not appear to be using best practices

  • Minimize labor demand upon DPW.

    • Make facility reduction more convenient.

    • Provide tools, best practice information and leverage existing data bases and reporting mechanisms vice creating new ones.

    • Perform facility assessments;

    • Prepare DD 337s including SHPO and McKinney Act coordination if requested.

    • Collect needed info without formal data calls.

Mission approach cont1
Mission Approach (cont.)

  • Consolidated Reporting

    • ACSIM / IMA require consolidated reports of all facility reduction efforts including OMA, AFH and MCA

    • HNC manages information (not funding) related to MCA 1:1 planning and execution

  • Consolidated Funds Management

    • HNC manages distribution of OMA and AFH demolition project funds

  • Virtual Situational Awareness

    • Monthly status reports prepared by HNC are furnished to ACSIM, IMA HQ/Regions, USACE MSCs and are available on EKO to individuals with AKO access

Procedures for OMA-funded project approval / funding

  • DPW actions:

    • Identify facility in IFS as being planned for execution in the current FY

    • Verify DD 337, Record of Environmental Consideration (REC) and McKinney Act compliance are complete

    • Request funding and confirm availability of contract for award / execution in current FY

  • HNC actions:

    • Search IFS to find facilities planned for demolition and confirm each facility being requested for demolition funding is recorded in IFS as being planned for demolition

Procedures (cont.)

  • HNC actions (cont.):

    • Scrub with PAX DD1391 Processor to ensure that the same facility is not programmed for demolition using MCA funds (double dipping).

    • Review the requested demolition funding amount for cost reasonableness

    • Work with the installations to complete DD337 and supporting documentation if incomplete.

    • Collect other information as needed from DPW and IMA Region to help prioritize project.

    • Prepare proposed project funding list (semi-annual) for HQ IMA approval

    • If approved, issue funding to DPW or to USACE District for execution.

Frp best practices toolbox
FRP Best Practices Toolbox

  • Web-based Toolbox to be hosted on EKO

  • Provides single-source comprehensive knowledge base available to the entire DPW community

  • Includes simple yet accurate budget estimating tools that require minimal data input

  • Provides guidance for HAZMAT remediation best practices & lessons learned

  • Contains comprehensive FRP information library

  • Provides optimized waste diversion (reuse/recycle) practices

  • Real time user feedback mechanism

FRP Toolbox

Performance Requirements

  • Toolbox budgetary estimates based on historical Army and commercial industry project cost information

  • Toolbox “Quick Estimate” designed for rapid answers and to minimize work for DPW staff

  • Toolbox generates estimates and provides information that is geographically tailored

  • Toolbox includes access to FRP technical experts

Tool Box Implementation

  • Web Access

    • Launch on EKO Web Site: 15 May 05

    • Web Site Maintenance by CERL

  • Anticipated events:

    • Future OACSIM policy letter, subject: Construction and Demolition Waste Management, will include the tool box web site link for determining attainable, project specific recycling / waste stream diversion quantities

    • Future FRP project prioritization system to include reference to tool box “should cost” standards

    • HNC will track and report how well Army is performing with respect to the new FRP standards.

NERO Regional Demolition Contract Acquisition

  • Background.

    • HQ IMA interested in the efficacy of regional contracting for demolition services as compared to locally procured contracts. NERO region selected for the first contract.

  • Description.

    • Cost & Type: Minimum of two $15M, 5-year, IDIQ Task Order contracts to provide full service (hazmat abatement, demolition / de-construction, and site restoration).

    • Geographical coverage: Northeast IMA Region: Virginia up to Maine (east of Ohio).

  • Status: Proposals received. Award planned by end of April 05

Future Trends

  • More emphasis on waste stream reduction / land fill diversion in contractor selection and performance specifications.

  • Concrete grinding for aggregate re-use or sale will become the norm.

  • Maximum “should cost” and minimum recycling standards will be enforced for all Army demolition projects.

  • Project prioritization system will be established for both funding of demolition and for identifying candidate facilities for future demolition.
