Restoration and modernization (R&M) improves facilities. Restoration includes repair and replacement work to restore facilities damaged by inadequate sustainment, excessive age, disaster, accident, or other causes. Modernization includes alteration of facilities solely to implement new or higher standards (including regulatory changes), to accommodate new functions, or to renew building components that typically last more that 50 years (such as foundations and structural members). Restoration and modernization does not include recurring sustainment tasks or certain environmental measures which are funded elsewhere. Other tasks associated with facilities operations (such as custodial services, grounds services, waste disposal, and the provision of central utilities) are also not included.
The Facilities Modernization Model (FMM) provides a uniform mechanism for tracking investments in "mainstream" recapitalization programs – that is, programs financed by the military services and larger defense agencies through the military construction accounts, augmented in some cases with O&M or working capital funds. The FMM was developed by establishing clear rules as to what would be counted as recapitalization funding and what would be defined as new footprint funding in the military construction accounts. The FMM, however, always should be used in conjunction with the Facilities Sustainment Model. The Facilities Sustainment/Modernization/Operation Models (FSM/FMM/FOM) are available at Facility Program Requirements Suite.
