CMC (LF) publishes a Baseline ECE schedule annually. The schedule establishes a three-year Baseline ECE cycle with a Benchmark ECE conducted at each installation every third year. CMC (LF) shall provide each installation a two-month advance written notice of the Benchmark ECE. In this notice, the installation shall be tasked with providing pre-ECE questionnaire and POC information.
The CMC (LF) and contractor Benchmark ECE team leaders will conduct an in-brief with the installation commander. The CMC (LF) and contractor Benchmark ECE team will normally meet each afternoon to discuss evaluation progress, problem areas, and coordinate the next day's schedule. Installation representatives are encouraged to attend these meetings. If the Benchmark ECE schedule permits,the CMC (LF) ECE team leader may allow installation or unit staff to read media-specific portions of the Benchmark ECE draft report for their information before the out-brief with the installation commander.
The CMC (LF) and contractor Benchmark ECE team leaders will conduct an out-brief with the installation commander and provide a copy of the Benchmark ECE draft report. The out-brief shall summarize significant findings or concerns including any that are important for the commander’s
awareness or that require the commander’s authority to correct.
