Rethinking Governance of the Army's Arsenals and Ammunition Plants

Appendix A
DEPOT DUPLICATION

As part of this study, we were asked to examine the question of whether duplicative capabilities between the arsenals (Watervliet and Rock Island), on the one hand, and the repair depots, on the other, currently allow for consolidating workload between these facilities. For the purposes of this limited inquiry, we assume that these facilities will remain government-owned. Additionally, since the overall study focuses on the Army's manufacturing facilities (arsenals and ammunition facilities), we have limited our assessment of the depots to the question posed at the beginning of this paragraph. We therefore avoid doing an in-depth analysis of the government depot system similar to what we have done for the government arsenals and ammunition facilities in the main body of this report.

While the scope of the question posed to us is quite narrow, the larger question of consolidating the workloads at the Army's depots and arsenals is clearly one that should be addressed. Today, the depots are primarily staffed, organized, and equipped for repairing and rebuilding military equipment. The arsenals, on the other hand, are staffed, organized, and equipped for manufacturing of new military equipment. This division of labor and missions occurred several decades ago in response to conditions at the time and may not be appropriate to current missions and workloads. Therefore, in the context of a larger organic Army industrial base reorganization, there may be efficiencies to be gained by consolidating functions between these two types of organizations and facilities.1 While a study to examine those issues is beyond the scope of our current effort, we recommend that the Army conduct the study in the near future.

The Army has five repair depots. These are Anniston Army Depot (ANAD), which primarily focuses on ground combat systems; Red River Army Depot (RRAD), responsible for ground combat and support systems; Corpus Christi

This study should be done regardless of whether all the facilities remain GOGO or whether, as we recommend in Chapter Seven, the arsenals are organized as FGCs.
