West Point Utility Condition Assessment
West Point, New York
BEI is providing on-site expertise to plan and initially execute lifecycle Utility Condition Assessments (UCAs) for all building structures and facilities on US Military Academy, West Point.
The accurate assessment of utility components is the basis for projecting what the component condition will be in the future. As components age, the goal is to fix/replace components at the end of the life cycle but before failure. At higher long-term funding levels, this requires developing projects several years in advance in order to submit for authority and funding for those projects.
BEI familiarized itself with all active and future construction and maintenance practices on Campus, to develop a plan to systematically inspect and assess all electrical & mechanical components on West Point Campus. Plan will provide for recommendations to efficiently inspect, and to prioritize future projects based on the below criteria.
Identify overall utility priorities for II PEG Restoration and Modernization (R&M) and
Military Construction (MILCON) programs in order to achieve the objectives of the Army’s Facility Investment Strategy (FIS).
The Government and BEI are working jointly to identify the schedule and coordination of access based on the following priorities:
Quality of Life on Army Installations
Strategic Readiness and optimized Power Projection Capacity
Army Training and Readiness Facilities
Army Industrial Base
Utility Modernization to support Army Modernization
BEI's assessments will be utilized to establish long- and short-term goals related to preventative maintenance, repair versus replacement, and the overall facility life-cycle health.

USMC Garrison Retail Supply Chain (GRSC), provides retail stores and depots as well as online/delivery services for both USMC and non-USMC on-base customers. Several discrete studies were conducted to assess the performance and impact of the GRSC model, but these studies were unable to give USMC a broad and thorough understanding of the GRSC model’s impact and the impact of potential enhancements.
BEI was hired in to develop a rigorous analysis of the USMC GRSC, examining the investments and results of the USMC-GSA partnership and the potential impact of enhancements to the model.
BEI team that could applied its experience and expert networks across federal, commercial, and non-profit enterprises to effectively understand USMC GRSC operations and drivers of cost and value, engage USMC and GSA stakeholders, tailor a rigorous approach and methodology to the USMC GRSC, and develop future-state enhancements, benchmarks, and data models to drive the study evaluation. BEI worked closely with USMC and GSA to ensure buy-in, high-quality input, and study rigor.
BEI reports, addressed total cost and mission performance concerns. In each, BEI isolated factors that drive millions of dollars in costs (and potential efficiencies) and drivers of supply chain results and perceptions. The reports contained:
Total cost analysis – financial results, product price/cost benchmarking, and non-product cost buildups
Mission performance impact analysis – overall findings and implications and capability-specific findings
Evaluation of future-state options – details, applicability, and quantitative and qualitative GRSC impact
