Sample text

A business process review published by the PBS in September 1996 contained a strong customer endorsement for the process. Indian Health Service The Indian Health Service (IHS) programs, budgets, and executes construction projects for new and replacement health care facilities in support of 540 Indian tribes located throughout the United States. Funding levels fluctuate greatly from year to year, although construction funds in the “pipeline” smooth the workload variation. Although no new projects were approved for several years, project approvals have resumed in FYs 1998 and 1999.

The contractors, through a variety of contract mechanisms, design, build, and maintain the facilities for the department. The following DOE field offices, all contractor operated, participated in the study: • • • • • • • Idaho Operations Office, Idaho Falls, Idaho; Oakland Operations Office, Oakland, California; Oak Ridge Operations Office, Oak Ridge, Tennessee; Richland Operations Office, Richland, Washington; Golden Field Office, Golden, Colorado; Pantex Plant, Amarillo, Texas; and Carlsbad Area Office, Carlsbad, New Mexico.

As missions, priorities, and situations change, agencies may experience wide fluctuations in the scope and budget for their facility acquisition programs. For example, a recent program to upgrade federal courthouses around the country has added billions of dollars to the General Services Administration’s construction activity. S. Department of State is facing a similar situation. Following the 1998 bombings of embassies in Africa, legislation requiring rapid and extensive upgrade of embassy security features worldwide was enacted which could require several billion dollars to execute.
