Transformation & Restationing

Welcome and Mission

Welcome to the Transformation and Restationing (T&R) page! We are a combined team of military, civilian and contractor professionals supporting the relocation and resetting of forces and facilities throughout Korea on behalf of the USFK Commander. USFK T&R oversees policy development, coordination, synchronization and integration for the Land Partnership Plan (LPP) and the Yongsan Relocation Plan (YRP), as well as additional force stationing issues as directed, in support of the USFK Commander.

Program Overview

USFK Transformation and Restationing is the largest bilateral transformation and construction project in the history of the Department of Defense (DoD).

  • The overall cost of the program is $10.7B, with the Republic of Korea (ROK) Government directly and indirectly funding 92% of the program. 
  • ROK funding for the Pyeongtaek Area Development Plan from 2006-2020 has been in excess of $15 billion.
  • The program consists of two main categories: Yongsan Relocation Plan and Land Partnership Program.
