Installation officials no longer would need to commit base support funding for administrative expenses associated with assessing potential enhanced use leasing (EUL) projects and managing the acquisition process to select a developer, under language included in the Senate version of the fiscal 2014 defense authorization bill. The provision, section 2811 of S. 1197, would allow installation officials to use the proceeds from EUL projects — as well as easements — to cover the administrative costs of launching and managing new projects, a change that could make it easier for officials to consider new EUL projects …

The General Services Administration is expected to seek proposals shortly to restore and lease historic Hangar One at Moffett Field in northern California. GSA will rely on section 111 of the National Historic Preservation Act to free the winning developer from using the hangar for activities related to the mission of the NASA Ames Research Center, reported the Mountain View Voice. “Section 111 gives us unique authority,” said David Haase, branch chief of the GSA. “Unlike enhanced use leasing authority NASA has used in the past, this will allow tenants to use the property for any use [they] would want to see within [section 111]. Before partners would need to have some direct connection to NASA,” he said. GSA will also offer companies the option of operating the airfield.

In a review of the impact of the growing number of privatization projects on military installations, the Government Accountability Office concluded that future base closure rounds would benefit from the Defense Department providing more comprehensive information about the potential costs created when DOD terminates project agreements with the private sector. The congressional watchdog agency found that the department likely would incur liabilities following a BRAC round for renewable energy and privatized utility projects on affected installations …
