Lawrence could gain from Kansas defense cuts

November 27, 2007
The Defense Finance and Accounting Service in Lawrence is expected to gain some of the more than 600 jobs scheduled to be eliminated from a similar base in Kansas City, Mo., when it closes in August 2008, according to the Kansas City Star.

The Kansas City base, which provides accounting for all military branches, is one of 21 such accounting offices that are closing as a result of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure plan. The plan is intended to save the U.S. Department of Defense billions of dollars.

Other workers displaced by the closing could move to Denver or Columbus, Ohio, the newspaper reported.
