|Publication Date:||18 June 2018|
This regulation applies to the Active Army, the Army National Guard/Army National Guard of the United States, and the U.S. Army Reserve. It also applies to the Army service component commanders of combatant commands.
This regulation prescribes policies and responsibilities for Department of the Army (DA) military construction (MILCON) and construction, maintenance, and repair (CMR) projects accomplished by engineer troop units in connection with training activities. CMR activities are differentiated according to their location and the method of funding. Maintenance is defined as work required to preserve and maintain a real property facility in such condition that it may be used effectively for its designated functional purpose. Maintenance includes work done to prevent damage which would be more costly to restore than to prevent, as well as work to sustain components. Examples include renewal of disposable filters, painting, caulking, refastening loose siding, and sealing bituminous pavements. Repair is defined as restoration of a real property facility to such condition that it may be used effectively for its designated functional purpose. Correction of deficiencies in failed or failing components of existing facilities or systems to meet current Army standards and codes where such work, for reasons of economy, should be done concurrently with restoration of failed or failing components. A utility system or component may be considered "failing" if it is energy inefficient or technologically obsolete. Only operation and maintenance (O&M) funds can be used for maintenance or repair projects
