Personal Author R. Gingras
Abstract Modern contingency base management is a complicated task worthy of trained professionals. Base Mayors have to plan for Military Construction (MILCON) Projects, utilities, and facility maintenance and oversee and coordinate with the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), contracting officers, contractors, Logistical Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP) contractors and LOGCAP Liaison Officers (LSOs). Mayor s cells are also expected to prepare scope of work documents to solicit proposals from contractors. Installations Command (IMCOM) has accepted the mission to provide Base Management for Bagram Airfield and Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan with a team of IMCOM civilians having arrived in 2012. This paper examines the problems of base management and construction and makes recommendations for improvements of base management and construction during contingency operations.
