DOE Disposition Portfolio Characteristics – Over 50 Sites – Many sites hosts multiple programs – Excess facilities generally embedded in a complex – Security Issues at almost all sites Limits opportunity for commercial reuse – Contamination issues Long and complex decontamination & demolition times 12
13 Life Cycle Facilities Management Where are we??
14 Excess Elimination Drivers Annual Maintenance $86M for non-operating facilities One for one offset for new construction and replacement facilities Economic development transfers Mission requirements Environmental stewardship Please archive as soon as you know an asset has been dispositioned!
DOE Excess Process Site determines asset is excess to site mission Certified Reality Specialist concurs Asset(s) are screened by program Asset(s) are screened by DOE If no interest expressed – Declared excess to DOE – FIMS Excess indicator set to YES – Populate estimated disposition year Proceed with GSA screening 15
DOE Screening Process Complete a Request for Disposition Form FIMS website: http://www.fimsinfo.doe.gov/excess_elimination.htm http://www.fimsinfo.doe.gov/excess_elimination.htm Send to firstname.lastname@example.org@hq.doe.gov Asset Screened for seven days Email reply in seven days – Stating the asset is excess to DOE – Populate the Estimated Disposition Year Contact Phil Dalby if you dont hear from me in seven days 16
DOE Excess Process Cont Screened through GSA and HUD – See your local or HQ Reality Specialist! Excess Asset(s) are disposed Asset(s) archived in FIMS – Ensure correct status – Ensure correct status date These used for space banking Archive NLT 12 Nov 2011!!! 18 Dont get tangled up in red tape contact your Reality specialist!
19 FY 2010 Report on DOEs Disposition of Excess Real Property Status of Banked Square Feet for Future One- for-One Offsets Office of Engineering and Construction Management March 2011
DOE Bank Bank queried from FIMS Included Buildings, real property trailers and OSFs OSFs must be measured in SF 15 square feet could save you…
Timeline For FY 2011 Excess Elimination Report Now to 12 November 2011 – Sites archive real property assets disposed of in FY 2010. – Assets must be archived by 12 November 2010 – Note: No assets will be banked if they are not archived in the Facility Information Management System (FIMS) database 15 January 2012 – Program Offices sent FY 2002 to FY 2011 Bank information 1 February 2012 – Program Offices provide concurrence or comments via email 30 March 2012 – Issue FY 2011 Excess Elimination Report 21
Partial Demolition Definition - A partial disposition/demolition with respect to FIMS is when a portion of a real property asset is demolished or disposed of and a new FIMS record is generated and archived to capture the portion of the real property asset that has been demolished or disposed of Update - FIMS records to document partial dispositions/demolitions when the remainder of the real property asset will remain for five or more years 22
Example 1 Building being demolished over several years One wing is being demolished each year It would not be appropriate to generate a new FIMS record each year and archive it to take credit for the square footage demolished in that year The correct procedure would be to wait until the entire building is demolished and archive the entire FIMS record 23
Example 2 A building has three wings Wing 1 is demolished There are no plans on disposing of the other two wings It would be appropriate to develop a new FIMS record for the demolished wing and archive the record 24
Example 3 100 acres of a 500 acre land parcel is being disposed of There are no plans to dispose of the remaining 400 acres It would be appropriate to develop a new FIMS record for the acreage that is being disposed of and archive the new record 25
