Department of Defense (DOD)
The DOD manages military bases across the nation and around the world. Any change to a military installation’s use can impact its surrounding community. REALTORS®interact and provide input with the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission, during the base realignment process. They also work with the Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) when communities are adversely impacted by base closures or realignments, base expansions, and contract or program cancellations. DOD also houses the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), which is responsible for administering the wetlands permitting and regulatory program under the Clean Water Act.
