Helping Defense Communities Save Money
Steve Bonner and Glenn Seitcheck
The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 (2013 NDAA) has provided military installations with new authority to enter into agreements with state and local governments to mutually share services. In an era of shrinking defense budgets, the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army are aggressively implementing this new law to achieve installation-level operating efficiencies. State and local governments face similar budget pressures. Partnering with other organizations that perform similar activities can leverage each organization’s strengths and resources to create mutual value in excess of what can be accomplished independently.
