TITLE III OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE

P. L. 108-375

House Conference Report 108-767

SEC. 325. PILOT PROGRAM FOR PURCHASE OF CERTAIN MUNICIPAL SERVICES FOR ARMY INSTALLATIONS.

(a) PILOT PROGRAM AUTHORIZED. The Secretary of Army may carry out a pilot program to procure one or more of the municipal services specified in subsection (b) for an Army installation from a county or municipality in which the installation is located for the purpose of evaluating the efficacy of procuring such services rather than providing them directly.

(b) SERVICES AUTHORIZED FOR PROCUREMENT. Only the following services may be procured for a military installation participating in the pilot program:

(1) Refuse collection.

(2) Refuse disposal.

(3) Library services.

(4) Recreation services.

(5) Facility maintenance and repair.

(6) Utilities.

(c) PARTICIPATING INSTALLATIONS. Not more than two Army installations may be selected to participate in the pilot program, and only installations located in the United States are eligible for selection.

(d) CONGRESSIONAL NOTIFICATION. The Secretary may not enter into a contract under the pilot program for the procurement of municipal services until the Secretary notifies the congressional defense committees of the proposed contract and a period of 14 days elapses from the date the notification is received by the committees.

(e) IMPLEMENTATION REPORT.

     (1) Not later than February 1, 2007, the Secretary shall submit to the congressional defense committees and the Comptroller General a report describing the implementation of the pilot program, evaluating the efficacy of procuring municipal services for participating installations from local counties or municipalities, and containing any recommendations that the Secretary considers appropriate regarding expansion or alteration of the program.

     (2) The Comptroller General shall submit to the congressional defense committees an assessment of the findings and recommendations contained in the report submitted under paragraph (1).

(f) TERMINATION OF PILOT PROGRAM. The pilot program shall terminate on September 30, 2010. Any contract entered into under the pilot program shall terminate not later than that date.

The Senate amendment contained a provision (sec. 363) that would authorize a pilot program under which the secretary of a military department could provide for the purchase of local governmental services at a Department of Defense installation from the local government responsible for serving the area.

The House bill contained no similar provision.

The House recedes with an amendment that would limit the pilot program to two Department of Army installations located in the United States.

Senate Report 108-260

The committee recommends a provision that would authorize a pilot program under which the secretary of a military department could provide for the purchase of local governmental services at a Department of Defense installation from the local government responsible for serving the area. This pilot program is a follow-on to the program authorized in section 816 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1995 (Public Law 103-337) under which the Secretary of Defense was authorized to engage in similar support agreements for the Presidio of Monterey. Unlike the Monterrey pilot program, the provision recommended by the committee would not authorize the acquisition of security guard and firefighting services from local government entities. The pilot program would provide an opportunity for the military departments to partner with local governments at six installations with a goal of providing quality services at a reduced cost to the Department.
