The Congress established the 2005 BRAC Commission to ensure the integrity of the
base closure and realignment process. As directed by law, the Commission will provide
an objective, non-partisan, and independent review and analysis of the list of military
installation recommendations issued by the Department of Defense (DoD) on May 13,
2005. The recommendations provided by DoD are extremely complex and interrelated
and will require in-depth analysis and careful attention to detail. The Commission
will follow a fair, open, and equitable process, as set forth by statute. The Commission's
mission is to assess whether the DoD recommendations substantially deviated from
the Congressional criteria used to evaluate each military base. While giving priority
to the criteria of military value, the Commission will also take into account the
human impact of the base closures and will consider the possible economic, environmental,
and other effects on the surrounding communities.
