|In the latter stages of the BRAC analysis, the Department engaged a small group of executive-level former government officials. Called the “Red Team,” this group was asked to provide an independent assessment of candidate recommendations.
The Red Team met with each Military Department and JCSG. It reviewed candidate recommendations, report drafts, and supporting materials. The team’s insights provided valuable feedback and suggestions for improving the quality of the candidate recommendation packages relative to the standard by which the Commission may alter the Secretary’s recommendations.
