Department of Defense Base Redevelopment & Realignment Manual (DoD 4165.66-M)

The Base Redevelopment and Realignment Manual (BRRM), DoD 4165.66-M describes the "process" that will be followed to implement the BRAC 2005 recommendations. It has been updated to reflect statutes and regulations that are new since the previous manual was published in 1997. The BRRM provides an array of legal authorities - a "tool box" of possible property transfer options, that affords DoD flexibility for individual circumstances.

The Department of the Navy Base Realignment and Closure Implementation Guidance (NBIG)

The Department of the Navy (DON) Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Implementation Guidance (NBIG) complements the BRRM. This guidance can be used by all parties involved in the efficient execution of all Navy and Marine Corps BRAC actions. It describes the roles and responsibilities of each Navy and Marine Corps Component involved in the BRAC process and prescribes procedures on the implementation of base closure and realignment actions.
