From the report: “Despite the resources expended on military housing, much of it still fails Defense Department suitability standards, the Task Force on Quality of Life finds. This finding is not new, the Task Force acknowledges. It has been repeatedly documented by numerous surveys and studies and was confirmed during town meetings and discussions during the Task Force's travels (see Appendix 2). However, the Task Force finds that the delivery system is so intrinsically flawed that it recommends its replacement with an entirely new system, run by a Military Housing Authority, using private housing industry management principles and practices. Like any other company, the proposed Authority would be empowered to raise operating and investment money from private sources.”
