Guiding Real Property Management.

The common information components of Military Master Planning are Real Property, Force Structure, and Criteria.  SYNCADD has subject matter expertise in these components and how they are interrelated in facility planning and justification for funding.  This expertise has been applied in facilities requirements analyses for installations and commands worldwide as well as developing and interpreting the criteria that guides real property management.

Facility Requirements Analysis is the foundational activity that correctly aligns the right facilities, at the right time, for the right unit or organization. A Facilities Requirements Analysis and subsequent update to the Real Property Planning and Analysis System’s (RPLANS) Tabulation of Existing and Required Facilities (TAB) allows the installation and higher headquarters to proactively plan facilities for upcoming initiatives, stationing activities, and to reconcile existing assets to existing needs using established criteria. The primary product of a Requirements Analysis is recommended edits to RPLANS requirements data.  Real Property Inventory data and Force Structure Data are validated as part of the Requirements Analyses, so edits to the applicable databases (GFEBS, ASIP) are generated. The revised data then presents a more accurate picture of the actual state of the installation / unit assets.

Audit Readiness/Chief Financial Officers Act (CFOA) and Reduce the Footprint (RTF) initiatives are driving tremendous activity for installations and commands. These initiatives have focused attention on data quality in Army enterprise systems including General Fund Enterprise Business System (GFEBS) and the Real Property Planning and Analysis System (RPLANS). GFEBS is the Army’s database of record for assets including the real property inventory. RPLANS is the database of record for facility requirements. In the context of Audit Readiness and RTF, tasks are being pursued in support of one initiative that can adversely impact the other because the scope of the tasks are too narrow to fully appreciate the inherent relationships between data sets. Ultimately RPLANS is the integrator of data from multiple sources including the Army Stationing and Installation Plan (ASIP), the Headquarters Installation Information System (HQIIS), GFEBS, the Force Management System (FMSWeb) and more. ePRISMS is foundational data that, when allowed to do so, renders an auditable basis for real property data in GFEBS. SYNCADD has the expertise and integrative processes that seek to address issues in RPLANS, GFEBS and ASIP, ensuring the critical horizontal relationships between data sets are considered and accommodated in every task.
