Implementation of the decisions arising from the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990 (Title XXIX, Public Law (P.L.) 101-510) requires appropriate levels of environmental inventory, planning, consultation, permitting, and execution (see Sec. 2905(c)). Based on experience with Base Realignment and Closure I (BRAC I), the handbook provides practical guidance for Army proponents who are tasked with preparing environmental analyses pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (the NEPA process). The purpose of the handbook is to ensure timely, complete, and consistent compliance with the requirements of NEPA by Army proponents during the BRAC91 realignments and closures. The 'How To' manual was conceptually derived from the 'lessons-learned' sessions held in the Pentagon following the tumultuous attempts at NEPA analysis and documentation in support of BRAC I and II. Participants in BRAC I were invited to present their views regarding successes, failures, and needed improvements to the process. While many of the ideal improvements will require more time, it was unanimously felt that a guidance document was needed which allowed all participants to have a common reference from which individual responsibilities at all levels could be performed.
