- Full Report:
The Department of Defense realinement of the Army Troop Command and the Army Aviation Systems Command could save an estimated $6.7 million each year and avoid other costs.
Abolishing the Troop Support Command and the Aviation Systems Command to form two new commands, the U.S. Army Troop Support and Aviation Material Readiness Command and the U.S. Army Aviation Research and Development Command, could cost about $14.2 million, primarily to renovate facilities. The realignment could reduce staffing requirements by 335 positions and could avoid about $19.2 million in costs for planned facility renovation which may not be necessary if the move is made. The readiness command will have logistics support and material readiness missions. The research and development command will have research, development, and acquisition missions. Both new commands would be located at the Federal Center, St. Louis, Missouri. The Troop Support Command is already located at the Federal Center, and the Aviation Command is located at the Federal Building in St. Louis. If the realinement does occur, the General Services Administration plans to dispose of this building. If the move does not occur, repairs and alterations to the building, estimated at about $19.2 million, are planned for fiscal years 1978 through 1981.
