Rethinking Governance of the Army's Arsenals and Ammunition Plants

By W. Michael Hix; Ellen M. Pint et al. | Go to book overview

Chapter Seven
SUMMARY COMPARISON OF OPTIONS

This chapter compares the three feasible options—privatization, creation of a federal government corporation, and consolidation—against each of the five criteria: mission accomplishment, cost, consistency with national security policy, managerial ease, and external issues.

As described in Chapter Four, the fourth option, recapitalization and unification, is set aside as infeasible outside of a comprehensive BRAC strategy that encompasses eliminating the whole set of the Army's single-function installations.

The remaining feasible set of options appears in Table 7.1. For the GOCO plants, all three remaining options are feasible. For the GOGO ammunition plants, the peculiar conditions of protective legislation, other missions, and Navy ownership remove them from consideration, apart from possible A-76 competitions at Pine Bluff—a form of partial privatization.1 For the arsenals, both the FGC and consolidation options remain viable, the latter with BRAC

As noted in Chapter Four, Pine Bluff Arsenal could be converted to a GOCO if a contractor won an A-76 competition to perform its workload, but it would remain a GOGO if the in-house “Most Efficient Organization” won. Crane AAA and McAlester AAP are exempt even from A-76 competitions by protective legislation that requires all functions performed by government employees when the legislation was passed in 1986 always to be performed by government employees (Section 317, PL 99-661, November 14, 1986).
