Defense Policy Review Initiative (DPRI) Overview

By John M. Robertson

Intent -Relocate Marines from Okinawa to Guam –2006 Roadmap: Approx. 8,600 Marines plus 9,000 dependents –2012 Adjustment: Approx. 5,000 Marines plus 1,300 dependents --Construction cost being shared with the Government of Japan

As is well known by residents of Guam and especially those in the engineering-construction industry, the Record of Decision (ROD) was signed on 29 August 2015 Guam time. This action triggered the release of funding for DPRI projects on Guam. At the 21 October meeting of the GCA general membership, CAPT Stephanie Jones, new Commanding Officer of NAVFAC Marianas, was introduced and provided an overview of the Defense Policy Review Initiative. Portions of her presentation are repeated below.

CURRENT DPRI PROJECTS

(Programmed Amounts as of 1 October 2015) •Completed – Total of $400 Mil

−P-204 Apra Wharf I $119M −P-1003 Military Working Dog Relocation $13M −P-100 North Ramp Utilities Phase I $20M

−P-101 North Ramp Parking Phase I $82M −P-204A Apra Wharf II $38M −J-001 Apra Harbor Infrastructure $96M −J-001A AAFB Gate and Fac $32M

•Awarded / Under Construction – Total of $251 Mil −P-101A North Ramp Parking Phase II $24M

Today’s Plan –Fewer Marines stationed on Guam, more Marines deployed on a temporary rotation –Reduced number of Marines and dependents opened up more options

2010 Record of Decision −Aviation Mobility Command Complex (air embarkation facilities) and development of North Gate / access road at Andersen AFB (AAFB) −Wharf improvements at Navy Base Guam (NBG) −Military Operations on Urban Terrain (MOUT) complex and maneuver training ranges at Andy South

10 | NOVEMBER2015

ANTICIPATED ECONOMIC IMPACT •“Economic impacts from the Military Relocation would be beneficial, leading to increased employment and standards of living.” •Civilian labor force demand is expected to increase by a maximum of 7,031 jobs in 2021. •Estimated average salaries for jobs related to the construction phase and military operation phase are expected to be

CONSTRUCTION NEWS BULLETIN

considerably higher than the 2012 Guam median salary. •GovGuam tax revenues are expected to increase by a maximum of $86.4M in 2021 and reach a steady-state level of $40M in 2028. (Personal income tax revenues & anticipated Section 30 funds are expected to be the major contributors.)

COY WINNER “What’s in a name?” The famous William Shakespeare asked this. Some literary scholars probably theorize Shakespeare was talking about how names don’t really matter – that all we need to know is what something is and not the name of who or what is behind it. Shakespeare was probably guiding the evolution the English language, or simply developing an understanding of what character is for many to live by for centuries to come. In an ever-growing, expanding, and strengthening industry like construction, it is important to stick to a name and what it represents. Some boldly stick out, while others fade with the passing colors. In the psychology of colors, black is synonymous with sophistication, excellence, and efficiency. The Guam Contractors Association is proud to name and congratulate Black Construction Corporation as the 2015 Contractor of the Year. Through and through, BCC has continuously lived up to its name of excellence and efficiency, while promoting the highest degree of quality and safety for their clients

and the island they have called home for over five decades. Safety is of the highest importance for any contractor. BCC set a goal in 2007 to enhance their safety program, which provides incentives to Safety Officers to obtain their certification. BCC saw a significant increase in the number of certified safety officers seven times over. This increase made it so there was extra attention to details for each project and greater focus – enhancing, not only a safer work environment, but setting an industry standard. The record speaks for itself with a litany of performance awards, including the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Marianas Safety Through Awards Recognition (STAR) Outstanding Safety Performance and Exceptional Commitment to Safety for 2014, the ABC National Excellence in Construction Award, and 12-time awardee for the Overall Excellence in Construction Award. This isn’t their first rodeo either since BCC has received the highly-coveted Contractor of the Year award several times before, an unheard-of feat, which speaks volumes of their work ethic,

CONSTRUCTION NEWS BULLETIN

commitment to safety, and contributions to the communities in which they work. “BCC’s success lies in its self-sufficiency,” is stated in BCC’s Contractor of the Year application. Boasting over 300 local employees, BCC has made their mark has successfully developed varied and accommodating ways to manage their projects in-house. This only helps them to enhance their experience and project management expertise, and allows them to meet deadlines on time and within budget – keeping things “in the black”, some might say. In an age of conservation, environmental awareness, and efficiency, the community is seeing more and more businesses, especially construction companies working to reduce their ‘carbon footprint’. More than maintaining impeccable safety standards, BCC is committed to environmental responsibility and sustainability. They are a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and are committed to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEEDs) program. Currently, BCC has a growing list

From the damage caused by the Brown Tree Snake to the deterioration of Guam’s beloved trungkon niyok (Coconut Tree) by the Rhinoceros Beetle, it is imperative for construction companies to have a detailed plan of action to deal. BCC has implemented a strict Navy environmental program known as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point Plan (HACCP), which promotes project-specific plans for “documenting procedures for all necessary inspections of raw construction materials, equipment, and vehicles for non-native invasive and pest species prior to entering the project site and prior to moving equipment off-site.” They even hired SWCA Environmental Consultants to develop the plans, and their plan addresses preventive measures to keep additional non-native species from entering a project site.

But, Black Construction has consistently, efficiently, and effectively lived up to its name. With the wheels in full motion for the military buildup and the relocation of over 5,000 Marines and their dependents, we look to organizations like BCC to set the example and lead an indusBut, beyond their pretty immaculate safety try – and the island for that matter – toward record and their dedication to environmental success. awareness is the heart of any organization: the employees and the message they So, what truly is in a name?

Retirement solutions for your small business. “For some time our group had been asking for a 401(k) benefit. My first impression was that providing this type of program for a group as small as ours might be on the expensive side. Not only did ASC Trust Corporation break this

misconception, they surpassed my expectations. We were able to start a plan that was both fairly priced and made sense with what we were looking for. In the end, the tailored-solution was exactly what our team needed.” - Bill Beery

“After raising five kids, shuttling between sports events with all their "scented gear", car full of kids to and from the mall. Food in tow! Things are bound to leave "aromas" but with the help of Paradise Auto Spa’s deionization treatment! Our car smells like a new car! We will return!” - Joe Pangelinan

Finding a tailor-made solution is just the beginning. ASC offers a level of service that sets us apart from other retirement plan providers in the region. Let us help you save for a successful retirement, one paycheck at a time. Schedule to meet with our team today e: info@asctrust.com w: asctrust.com p: (671)-477-2724
