The Base Operations Program (BASEOPS) at the U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville provides a full spectrum of installation operations support to all facilities utilizing contracted manpower.

The BASEOPS Program consists of executing defined services structured around preventive and corrective maintenance. The objective is to preserve and maintain systems in such a condition that they may be effectively used for their designated functional purpose.

Preventive maintenance activities can be tailored based on the customer’s operational needs and budgetary constraints. Customers also may fund corrective maintenance incrementally using current year appropriations. This creates a budget friendly process for customers to pay for maintenance as it is needed and/or as additional funds become available.

The benefits of BASEOPS are one stop shopping for all installation facilities support requirements and the ability to award multiple year contract actions to reduce the chances of a gap in service.

BASEOPS ensures the quality of services provided to the installation by using various tools for Quality Assurance: local U.S. Army Corps of Engineers personnel, existing installation personnel and/or qualified contractors. These individuals provide onsite monitoring and oversight of work in a partnership with the Huntsville Center project manager and contracting officer.
