Performance Review of the Department of Military Affairs , Report No. 94-46, April 1995

  • The Department's planning, budgeting, and performance reporting systems do not provide useful information about the outcomes and effectiveness of Department activities.
  • Although the Department receives state and federal funding, it also manages several functions that generate revenues, such as timber harvesting, billeting, mining operations, and rental of armories. Revenues from timber harvesting and mining operations have decreased, resulting in a request for supplemental federal funding. While the Department has taken actions to decrease expenses and increase revenues, it has not recently reviewed the terms of its mining contract to ensure that royalty rates are appropriate, given the current value of the minerals mined at Camp Blanding. Current procedures provide a disincentive for armory-rental activity. Procedures do not inform armory managers of the advantages of renting armories, or guide post commanders in setting reasonable but profitable rental rates in their localities.
