Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC)

Beginning in 1988, Congress passed a series of laws authorizing the closure of certain Department of Defense properties and bases. Before property closed under Base Realignment and Closure can be transferred to a public entity for reuse, it must be environmentally clean. The Department of the Navy Base Realignment and Closure Office provides environmental programmatic management at closing installations with support from the Chief of Naval Operations / Commander, Navy Installations Command, Headquarters Marine Corps Facilities and Services, and Naval Facilities Engineering Command. Please visit the BRAC Program Management Office website for more information about this program.
