The Base Realignment and Closure process is an exercise by the federal government to determine the best use of its military installations. This includes both the closure and realignment of assets in an effort to increase efficiency within the Defense Department.
DISA's plans for move from Va. to Md. on schedule
Tuesday - 10/27/2009, 4:24am EDT
Lt. Gen. Carroll Pollett met with Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown and other Maryland officials Monday to discuss transportation issues and education opportunities for people who will be moving.
Pollett says surveys show that about 63 percent of DISA's work force will stay with the jobs after the move.
Brown says while some will commute from Virginia, he's hoping rising numbers will move to the state over a two-year period during which the military will pay for families to move.
About 4,300 jobs will be placed at DISA's new facility at Fort Meade between October 2010 and July 2011.
The move is part of the military's base closing and realignment process.
