Abstract: Utilities privatization is considered the preferred method for modernizing and recapitalizing utility systems in the Army. From Fiscal Year (FY) 1998 to FY 2002, the Army implemented a Utilities Modernization Program that focused on upgrading thermal utilities (i.e., central heating and air-conditioning/refrigeration plants and the respective distribution systems) to the most life-cycle cost-effective technology. The current Utilities Modernization Program from FY08–13 will focus not only on central heating and air-conditioning/refrigeration systems, but also on electric, natural gas, potable water, and wastewater systems. This program is supported by initiatives/actions under the Army Energy and Water Campaign Plan for Installations. This report outlines a candidate program management strategy for the Utilities Modernization Program and outlines best practices for performing life-cycle cost analyses for central energy plants and each type of utility system either exempt from utilities privatization or pending exemption from privatization.
