Brian Lepore, Director of Defense Capabilities and Management Issues, GAO

The last round of base realignments and closures (BRAC) back in 2005 did some good. Many of the bases were repurposed and used to help the homeless. But BRAC had problems, too. As outlined in a new report from the Government Accountability Office, DoD and Housing and Urban Development don't track progress on base conversions very well. It's a concern as the Defense Department raises the urgency of its request for a new round of closures. Brian Lepore, director of Defense Capabilities and Management Issues at the GAO, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with more on the problem.

Brian Lepore, Director of Defense Capabiliies and Management, GAO

Pentagon and Congressional defense leaders worry military bases, especially large test ranges, are potential targets for spying by foreign governments. That's why they want to know who their neighbors are and what they are doing so close to DOD camps and bases. Brian Lapore is the director of Defense Capabilities and Management at the Government Accountability Office. On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, he explained why it's important to understand who owns and occupies the land surrounding training ranges.

Brian Lepore, Government Accountability Office

The Defense Department isn't following one of its own roadmaps. Back in 2012, defense planners devised a plan for protecting bases and installations from the potentially damaging effects of climate change. That's all started to affect DoD's planning, but there's a lot more to do. Brian Lepore is the director of Defense Capabilities and Management at the Government Accountability Office. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss what the roadmaps mean.

Faulty data may be driving Pentagon's BRAC request

The metrics used by the Defense Department to help determine whether it needs an official round of Base Realignments and Closures (BRAC) is in need of an update, according to a new report from the Government Accountability Office. Current procedures lack the precision needed to give the Pentagon accurate data on the number of excess properties it actually owns.
