  AR 210-20 PDF

The AR 210-20 establishes and prescribes the Army’s real property master planning process.  It establishes the objectives and purpose of real property master planning and its relationship to the Planning, Programming, Budgeting, and Execution (PPBE) process.

The AR 210-20 assigns responsibilities and prescribes policies and procedures relating to the development, content, submission, and maintenance of a Real Property Master Plan (RPMP) at all levels of command.  It explains how the RPMP:

  • Establishes the foundation for real property management and development.
  • Reflects the goals, objectives, plans, and real property requirements for all units and organizations assigned to or supported by an installation.
  • Provides the framework for analyzing and justifying real property sustainment (maintenance and repair) resource allocations.
  • Helps justify real property construction, improvement, and development in accordance with Headquarters, Department of the Army (HQDA) programming guidance and focused investments.
  • Provides management with the capability to ensure the efficient acquisition, utilization, and disposal of real property assets.
  • Identifies requirements and alternatives for resolving real property deficiencies and excesses.
  • Provides information for the orderly closure, disposal, and establishment of land use controls for installations.
  • Provides the strategic capability for ensuring installation sustainability into the future through direct support of mission readiness and installation integration into regional planning.  Through effective use of an RPMP, future challenges and requirements can be proactively identified and mitigated or solutions programmed well before they become problems, thus ensuring installation sustainability.  The RPMP is an important element of the installation strategic planning process.
