Title, Associated Form, and OMB Number: Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Military Base Reuse Status, DD Form 2740, OMB Control Number 0790-0003.
Needs and Uses: Through the Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA), DOD funds are provided to communities for economic adjustment planning in response to closures of military installations. A measure of program evaluation is the monitoring of civilian job creation and type of redevelopment at the former military installations. The respondents to the semi-annual survey will generally include a single point of contact at the local level who is responsible for overseeing redevelopment efforts. If this data is not collected, OEA would have no accurate, timely information regarding the civilian reuse of former military bases. A key function of the economic adjustment program is to encourage private sector use of lands and buildings to generate jobs as military activity diminishes and to serve as a clearinghouse for reuse data.
Affected Public: Business or Other For-Profit; Federal Government; State, Local, or Tribal Government.
Annual Burden Hours: 150.
Number of Annual Respondents: 75.
Annual Responses to Respondent: 2.
Average Burden per Response: 1 hour.
