Army Force Structure: The Relocation of the 513th Military Intelligence Brigade

(Letter Report, 10/07/93, GAO/NSIAD-94-15)


The Army based its decision to relocate the 513th Military Intelligence
Brigade to Fort Gordon, Georgia, on operational considerations, although
GAO notes that the Brigade's current location in Fort Monmouth, New
Jersey, could also meet the 513th's wartime deployment requirements.
The Fort Gordon site should boost unit training opportunities since it
has many more open training areas and on-post firing ranges.  Since
1982, the Army has invested about $11 million in facilities and other
projects supporting the 513th's operations at Fort Monmouth.  The Army
expects the relocation of the 513th to Fort Gordon to yield savings in
construction and renovation costs, housing and cost-of-living
allowances, and training expenses.  Moving 513th units from Fort
Monmouth to Fort Gordon should have no effect on the missions of either
the 513th or other groups that will stay at Fort Monmouth--the Army's
Communications-Electronics Command and the FBI's regional computer
facility.
