Full report in PDF format

  • By ensuring the readiness of the Florida National Guard for activation, the Department of Military Affairs meets an essential need of the state.  The state activates the National Guard for the protection of citizens and property in case of civil unrest or natural disasters, such as hurricanes or wildfires.  Performance measures generally indicate that the department performs this mission successfully.
  • Facilities are an integral part of a National Guard unit’s readiness posture and require a commitment to long-term planning and budgeting.  The department may be able to realize a long-term cost avoidance by developing a plan to consolidate units in new armories.
