The Secretary of Defense should implement, at least on a test basis at selected installations, a program to monitor the use of energy by individual housing units and compare this information with like units both on and off the installations. As the results warrant, the Secretary should undertake additional monitoring and conservation measures.|
|Department of Defense||2. The Secretary of Defense, after receiving and analyzing each service's progress report on the contract cleaning program, should take the action needed to bring the cost of the program in line with related savings and intangible benefits.|
|Department of Defense||3. The Secretary of Defense should direct installation commanders to reexamine their performance in completing the repair and maintenance needed to return housing units to use promptly and within existing guidelines.|
