Overseas Property: State’s Estimated $3 Billion Deferred Maintenance Backlog - Director’s Summary

Video URL
More than a quarter of the State Department's overseas buildings and other real properties are in poor condition by State's condition standards, including almost 400 buildings and other assets that State considers critical to its mission. State's allocated maintenance funding stayed steady, averaging $505 million annually, even as it added real property-square footage grew 11% from 2015-19. State estimates it has a $3 billion deferred maintenance backlog that would take 30-40 years to eliminate at current funding levels. We made 5 recommendations, including that State develop a plan-and specify the funding needed-to address the backlog.
