Please refer the attached power point (dated September) previously generated CAPT Kall. -When this issue first came light few weeks ago, immediate actions were taken clean the ductwork w/in Bldg. AV-29. After cleaning the duct work, hospital department conducted survey (Indoor Air Quality) which indicated that the area was safe for occupancy work wrt IAQ. The BOS contractor, along with BEEF personnel, removed any identifiable animal waste under the building while securing any "holes" the skirting the 
facility. -From our conversations with JTF, OMC will also funding additional 
clean-up work AV-29 after this round commissions. The work will 
include removal replacement existing ceiling tiles, re-routing ducting provide better airflow into the work spaces, and inspecting the rest

We're getting some inquiries from the front office. How bad are the buildings GITMO? this isolated one building? Also, why would the base have missed this -was the building vacant for while until the trial started and inspection was done upon reopening?

Navy After Rats, Mold Gitmo Legal Offices Ben Fox, Associated Press GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba--Legal offices that are contaminated with mold and rat droppings that lawyers the Sept. terrorism trial have been getting sick will get full clean-up and evaluated safety experts, military official said Thursday. "comprehensive" cleaning the offices, which are primarily used 
defense teams the Guantanamo Bay tribunals, will begin the end the month and finished time for hearing scheduled December, said Army Capt. Michael Lebowitz, one the prosecutors the case five prisoners charged the Sept. attacks. 
"It's almost like fresh start," Lebowitz told the case judge, who has been 
fielding complaints about the offices this week while presiding over 
pretrial hearing the U.S. base Cuba. 
The issue the contaminated offices has repeatedly interrupted progress more than two dozen pretrial motions this week. Defense lawyers had sought postpone the hearing outright, which would have further delayed case that has been plagued delays. base official declared the offices unsafe September because mold and 
other problems, then the space was declared safe several weeks later after 
cleaning. But lawyers distributed photos this week showing the walls and air 
conditioning units coated with mildew and mold well floors littered 
with what appear mouse and rat droppings. Pictures also showed dead crab and lizard, both common the tropical base the Caribbean Sea. more than just aesthetics, lawyers said. Since late 2011, several 
members the Sept. defense team have suffered from fatigue and 
respiratory and eye ailments after trips Guantanamo Bay. 
"Each time travel Guantanamo Bay suffer from increased respiratory and eye problems that have landed the Guantanamo emergency room," said 
Cheryl Bormann, lawyer for Walid Bin Attash, who one the five men 
charged with planning and aiding the worst terrorist attack U.S. soil. 
Legal office space, which must meet security requirements because the 
attorneys and their staff handle classified evidence, short supply 
Guantanamo. The defense teams were forced cram into much smaller work 
space while preparing for the weeklong hearing, which has dealt largely with 
disputes over the rules for gathering evidence trial that likely 
more than year away. 
Bormann told the judge she welcomed the military's proposal for major 
clean-up and evaluation outside health experts. "We want fixed and want fixed right," she said. 

The judge, Army Col. James Pohl, had appeared grow frustrated the continuing complaints and welcomed step that hoped would resolve the issue. "Obviously, doesn't, I'll hear," said. 
Among the five men facing charges that include terrorism and murder Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who has previously told authorities that was the mastermind the Sept. attacks. 
Mohammed, who delivered five-minute lecture Wednesday denouncing the U.S. for killing "millions" the name national security, stayed silent 
during Thursday's court session. 
The judge heard arguments defense motions change rules for gathering evidence and calling witnesses that defense lawyers said will make impossible fairly defend their clients, who could get the death penalty convicted. Among their complaints that the rules would prevent defendants from seeing some the classified evidence against them. 
"This capital case. His life literally stake it," said David 
Nevin, the lawyer for the lead defendant. "Mr. Mohammed should able see everything." 
The defense and prosecution also sparred over the question the extent which the U.S. Constitution applies the prisoners charged special tribunals for wartime offenses. 
The Supreme Court has ruled that the base Cuba, because under U.S. control, generally covered the Constitution except when circumstances are deemed "impracticable and anomalous" and cannot enforced. 
The defense has asked the judge issue advisory opinion setting out what extent the Constitution applies the proceedings since some their challenges will raise constitutional issues. The prosecution said too early make such finding. 
Pohl did not rule the issue and the hearing was continue Friday. John Kliem

OMC started using facility June July 2007. File search our end indicates there was intention placing AV29 the demolition list, though one cannot totally sure since JTF GTMO took over immediately after shutting down dental clinic. Recent condition rating was 72, JUN 12, and configuration rating was 100, SEP 09. OMC utilizes the space intermittent basis, dependent upon the schedule commissions. Service calls typically placed around commissions and total 127 have been 
placed since June 2007, ranging complexity from changing light bulbs building envelope repairs (e.g. windows, roofs). Most recent service calls, placed September, related HVAC cleaning and roof leaks. -Facility has been the BOS contract continuously, subject facility availability (OMC controls entry into the facility and various parts the facility -e.g. second deck). Firm fixed price services the facility 
include: 
-SRM (service calls) 
-Fire Protection SRM 
-Janitorial (1st and 2nd fl) -restroom cleaning 5x/week, 2x/week 
forsweep/dust mop/damp mop/vacuum carpet 
-Refuse -empty dumpster 4x/week 
-Grounds Maintenance -primarily between AV29 and AV32 
-HVAC System Maintenance part the Integrated Maintenance Program

ENG placed service call for extermination any rodents the facility. 
Execution service call began SEP with the placement traps and determination entry points into the facility. After the service calls

This request was not turned service call all works were being 
accomplished under the previous and had already pressed the issue that

the results. 

Materials: each catchmaster trap each Victor rat trap oz. Talon (initial bait set) 

Results: each rats (9-29-12) each mouse (9-30-12) 

Bait stations were completely empty after first days and refilled Access

Francis currently have service call that will expire days set traps for 
rodent. went ahead and set traps and bait boxes the outside 
the building, far have had only trappings. The problem though 
that this building used seperately, downstairs get escort and have problems servicing the traps. However upstairs which highly 
secured area and yesterday (Tuesday) have not been able service 
the traps. The escort keeps telling Techs that there traps set that floor. know have traps there because were the one who set 
them there the first place. Now that area definitely off limits yesterday then maybe the Air Force Prev. Techs can allowed 
service the traps. not and the traps are not serviced then the situation 

will compounded. for the task being service call, have concider that will involve more than one trade, Custodial for cleanup, SRM for repairs and Pest Control for the actual trappings. really have solid idea what the Man/Hours for the other trades would like. would safe put task order something like that. the meanwhile will extend this current S/C until that place

Sir, 

The OMC took occupancy July 2007, according our records. The buildings are part the JTF 
inventory. Many small work orders have been done both Contractors (set JTF ENG) and BEEF 
forces include changing ceiling tiles, for HVAC, and structural jobs for reinforcing the flooring 
AV34. Both AV34 and AV29 have had chronic roof leaks with many minor repairs but roof 
replacement. The buildings have occupied some degree from 2006-present, but occupancy has 
been minimal during non-commission periods.

Skipper, 

Below provides additional insight the Commissions' admin facility GTMO. 

Admiral, 
Prior our follow-on discussion regarding the Commissions' facility NAVSTA GTMO, AV-29, wanted provide additional background. 

The facility was built 1942 and used dental clinic until JTF took over the facility December 

2001. JTF-GTMO (SOUTHCOM) the maintenance UIC and has controlled the space for the past 
years. The Office Military Commissions (OMC) started using the facility July 2007. Recent 
condition rating was 72, JUN 12, and configuration rating was 100, SEP 09. OMC 

utilizes the space intermittent basis, dependent upon the schedule commissions. total 127 
service calls have been placed since June 2007, ranging from changing light bulbs building envelope 

repairs (e.g. windows, roofs). comprehensive renovation maintenance was accomplished when the facility changed from 
years dental clinic legal office spaces, although space reconfiguration occurred. This may 
partially explain the inadequacy the HVAC system for its present demands. 

OMC works through JTF ENG all facility related matters. JTF ENG manages the facility and identifies, 
prioritizes, and funds work the OMC facilities. NAVFAC provides support requested, when JTF ENG their attached Air Force PRIME BEEF maintenance team are unable meet OMC's needs. PWD 
GTMO does provide the PAR services BOS work the facility. 

The facility has been the BOS contract continuously. Work done subject facility availability (OMC controls entry into the facility and various parts the facility, e.g. second deck). Firm fixed price services the facility include: 
-SRM (service calls) -Fire Protection SRM -Janitorial -restroom cleaning Sx/week, 2x/week floor sweep/dust mop/damp mop/vacuum carpet -Refuse -empty dumpster 4x/week -Grounds maintenance -primarily between AV29 and AV32 -HVAC system maintenance part the Integrated Maintenance Program 
Industrial Hygiene, USNH-GTMO, performed indoor air quality (IAQ) study SEP based concerns raised that time OMC and the JTF. the same day, JTF ENG placed service call for extermination any rodents the facility. Execution service call began SEP with the placement traps and determination entry points into the facility. After the service calls and HVAC cleaning, performed re-evaluation the facility, which deemed the facility safe for use. have attached variety reference material the facility including listing service calls, the service calls related rodents, IAQ study, property record card, and picture the facility.

Basic facts are true. The offices had mold and rat droppings. 
JTF-GTMO took the lead rectify; BOS did some the work. Mold and duct work were cleaned, animal waste removed, holes building sealed, instructions residents not leave food out. found safe for indoor air quality. JTF will fund more complete improvement the facility including duct and ceiling tile replacement.

Joe, 

We're getting some inquiries from the front office. How bad are the 
buildings GITMO? this isolated one building? Also, why would the 
base have missed this -was the building vacant for while until the trial 
started and inspection was done upon reopening?

Navy After Rats, Mold Gitmo Legal Offices Ben Fox, Associated Press GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba--Legal offices that are contaminated with mold and rat droppings that lawyers the Sept. terrorism trial have been getting sick will get full clean-up and evaluated safety experts, military official said Thursday. "comprehensive" cleaning the offices, which are primarily used defense teams the Guantanamo Bay tribunals, will begin the end the month and finished time for hearing scheduled December, said Army Capt. Michael Lebowitz, one the prosecutors the case five prisoners charged the Sept. attacks. 
"It's almost like fresh start," Lebowitz told the case judge, who has been 
fielding complaints about the offices this week while presiding over 
pretrial hearing the U.S. base Cuba. 

The issue the contaminated offices has repeatedly interrupted progress 
more than two dozen pretrial motions this week. Defense lawyers had sought postpone the hearing outright, which would have further delayed case 
that has been plagued delays. base official declared the offices unsafe September because mold and 
other problems, then the space was declared safe several weeks later after 
cleaning. But lawyers distributed photos this week showing the walls and air 
conditioning units coated with mildew and mold well floors littered 
with what appear mouse and rat droppings. Pictures also showed dead 
crab and lizard, both common the tropical base the caribbean Sea. more than just aesthetics, lawyers said. Since late 2011, several 
members the Sept. defense team have suffered from fatigue and 
respiratory and eye ailments after trips Guantanamo Bay. 
"Each time travel Guantanamo Bay suffer from increased respiratory and eye problems that have landed the Guantanamo emergency room," said Cheryl Bormann, lawyer for Walid Bin Attash, who one the five men charged with planning and aiding the worst terrorist attack U.S. soil. 
Legal office space, which must meet security requirements because the 
attorneys and their staff handle classified evidence, short supply 
Guantanamo. The defense teams were forced cram into much smaller work 
space while preparing for the weeklong hearing, which has dealt largely with 
disputes over the rules for gathering evidence trial that likely 
more than year away. 
Bormann told the judge she welcomed the military's proposal for major 
clean-up and evaluation outside health experts. "We want fixed and want fixed right," she said. 
The judge, Army Col. James Pohl, had appeared grow frustrated the 
continuing complaints and welcomed step that hoped would resolve the 
issue. "Obviously, doesn't, I'll hear," said. 
Among the five men facing charges that include terrorism and murder Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who has previously told authorities that was the mastermind the Sept. attacks. 
Mohammed, who delivered five-minute lecture Wednesday denouncing the U.S. for killing "millions" the name national security, stayed silent during Thursday's court session. 
The judge heard arguments defense motions change rules for gathering evidence and calling witnesses that defense lawyers said will make impossible fairly defend their clients, who could get the death penalty convicted. Among their complaints that the rules would prevent defendants from seeing some the classified evidence against them. 
"This capital case. His life literally stake it," said David 
Nevin, the lawyer for the lead defendant. "Mr. Mohammed should able see everything." 
The defense and prosecution also sparred over the question the extent which the U.S. Constitution applies the prisoners charged special tribunals for wartime offenses. 
The Supreme Court has ruled that the base Cuba, because under U.S. control, generally covered the Constitution except when circumstances are deemed "impracticable and anomalous" and cannot enforced. 

The defense has asked the judge issue advisory opinion setting out what extent the Constitution applies the proceedings since some their challenges will raise constitutional issues. The prosecution said too early make such finding. 
Pohl did not rule the issue and the hearing was continue Friday. John Kliem

Both projects can execute expedite manner since they needed address safety/health issues. Since are close FY13 this will executed with next year money. also consult with and they don't expect have any problems with all GPC's one's enter next budget. can have both project the same site visit. just need when the Bldg could inspected the KTR's coordinate the site visit.

Eng, 
Thanks for bringing the issues regarding air quality attention. would like press ahead with Indoor Air Quality surveys for AV-29 and bldg 1074 (JPJ hill) requested CLOe/OMC and J2/MAT, respectively. 

Concurrent with the request, but before conduct the surveys, however, asking LTC Flores set two separate meetings with you, me, J6, and the respective building occupants (CLOe OMC for AV-29; MAT for 1074) discuss the "worst case way ahead" which will need pursued the building deemed unfit for habitation and/or requires extended period vacancy for mold mitigation remediation (contracting) efforts. will need attend order speak possible networking issues involved with (temporary) relocation people and missions. 
LTC Flores -please set these two meetings the next week (CAPT Kall unavailable until Sep). 
Sooner better. 
Eng -please request the surveys for these two buildings. 
J2/MAT -please prepared discuss space and equipment network requirements for which JTF 
would need identify location forced vacate 1074 (temporarily permanently). Can all mission 
areas accomplished from another building the island? How long would take construct 
suitable replacement "trailer park"-type solution?

Navy After Rats, Mold Gitmo Legal Offices Ben Fox, Associated Press GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba--Legal offices that are contaminated with mold and rat droppings that lawyers the Sept. terrorism trial have been getting sick will get full clean-up and evaluated safety experts, military official said Thursday. "comprehensive" cleaning the offices, which are primarily used defense teams the Guantanamo Bay tribunals, will begin the end the month and finished time for hearing scheduled December, said Army Capt. Michael Lebowitz, one the prosecutors the case five 
prisoners charged the Sept. attacks. 
"It's almost like fresh start," Lebowitz told the case judge, who has been fielding complaints about the offices this week while presiding over pretrial hearing the U.S. base Cuba. 
The issue the contaminated offices has repeatedly interrupted progress more than two dozen pretrial motions this week. Defense lawyers had sought postpone the hearing outright, which would have further delayed case that has been plagued delays. base official declared the offices unsafe September because mold and other problems, then the space was declared safe several weeks later after cleaning. But lawyers distributed photos this week showing the walls and air conditioning units coated with mildew and mold well floors littered with what appear mouse and rat droppings. Pictures also showed dead crab and lizard, both common the tropical base the Caribbean Sea. more than just aesthetics, lawyers said. Since late 2011, several members the Sept. defense team have suffered from fatigue and respiratory and eye ailments after trips Guantanamo Bay. 
"Each time travel Guantanamo Bay suffer from increased respiratory and eye problems that have 
landed the Guantanamo emergency room," said Cheryl Bormann, lawyer for Walid Bin Attash, 
who one the five men charged with planning and aiding the worst terrorist attack U.S. soil. 
Legal office space, which must meet security requirements because the attorneys and their staff handle 
classified evidence, short supply Guantanamo. The defense teams were forced cram into 
much smaller work space while preparing for the weeklong hearing, which has dealt largely with 
disputes over the rules for gathering evidence trial that likely more than year away. 
Bormann told the judge she welcomed the military's proposal for major clean-up and evaluation outside health experts. "We want fixed and want fixed right," she said. 
The judge, Army Col. James Pohl, had appeared grow frustrated the continuing complaints and 
welcomed step that hoped would resolve the issue. "Obviously, doesn't, I'll hear," said. 
Among the five men facing charges that include terrorism and murder Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who has previously told authorities that was the mastermind the Sept. attacks. 
Mohammed, who delivered five-minute lecture Wednesday denouncing the U.S. for killing "millions" 
the name national security, stayed silent during Thursday's court session. 
The judge heard arguments defense motions change rules for gathering evidence and calling 
witnesses that defense lawyers said will make impossible fairly defend their clients, who could get 
the death penalty convicted. Among their complaints that the rules would prevent defendants from 
seeing some the classified evidence against them. 
"This capital case. His life literally stake it," said David Nevin, the lawyer for the lead 
defendant. "Mr. Mohammed should able see everything." 
The defense and prosecution also sparred over the question the extent which the U.S. Constitution applies the prisoners charged special tribunals for wartime offenses. 
The Supreme Court has ruled that the base Cuba, because under U.S. control, generally 
covered the Constitution except when circumstances are deemed "impracticable and anomalous" and 
cannot enforced. 
The defense has asked the judge issue advisory opinion setting out what extent the 
Constitution applies the proceedings since some their challenges will raise constitutional issues. 
The prosecution said too early make such finding. 
Pohl did not rule the issue and the hearing was continue Friday.

They also had the hospital department conduct indoor air quality test and review the work PPL believe that after PPI cleaned the HVAC ducting, conducted another IAQ test and approved occupancy the areas. The BEEF anthropologist removed any readily identifiable animal waste under the building and secured any visible holes the skirting.
