Army Intergovernmental Support Agreements

Comments: DoD did not accept this recommendation and stated that the Marine Corps was part of the Department of the Navy and that the recommendation was not necessary. GAO made a similar recommendation to the Navy. The DOD agreed with this recommendation and indicated that the Department of the Navy would issue guidelines that would direct the Navy and Navy to establish and implement a process to track the financial and non-financial benefits realized from intergovernmental support agreements (IGSAs) implemented by their respective departments. On March 1, 2019, the Department of the Navy directed the Commander, Naval Facility Command (MCICOM), to define policies or procedures and implement a process to collect and monitor information on the financial or non-financial benefits realized from all implemented IGSAs. On June 26, 2019, MCICOM published the necessary guidelines as well as an update to the Handbook order that reflects the new requirements. Through the establishment and implementation of this process and the documentation contained in guidelines, the Marine Corps will have information that decision-makers can use to verify a possible extension of the IGSA and decide whether to develop and implement similar agreements at other sites. The Army`s Installation Management Command (IMCOM) and officials at its Pentagon headquarters provide support services to local commanders who follow IGSAs, and agreements worth $3 million or more require authorization from the Deputy Chief of Staff for Facilities (G-9). But army officers have promised to review and approve the deals quickly. In the case of Fort Stewart, the base leaders received help from both organizations with a senior headquarters, said Travis Mobley, director of Fort Stewart`s Office of Planning, Analysis and Integration.

Five years ago, as budgets d scarcer for the resources needed to operate and support its bases, the military began a step to save money by sharing services with municipalities outside the fence lines of its bases. “We`ve had brainstorming sessions inside the garrison, but then the G-9 and IMCOM would help us move in the right direction: here are the rules, here are the memoranda you need to do, the cost-benefit analyses,” he said. They made us crawl and walk, and now we`re running. But without their support, it would have been very difficult. And I guess a lot of facilities are really hard to put their foot forward because they don`t know what the possibilities are. This is another mechanism to offer the same service, but at a reduced price, while remaining local.┬áComments: The Navy approved this recommendation, and on March 1, 2019, the Department of the Navy directed the Commander of Naval Facilities Command to define policies or procedures and implement a process to collect and monitor information on the financial or non-financial benefits realized from all implemented IGSAs. . . .
