To Meet the Challenges, We Need to Change

!

  • We are now in a non-earmark environment

  • We fund too many studies/projects at less than capability

  • It takes too long to get studies and projects completed

  • It costs too much!!

  • We make sponsors and stakeholders unhappy due to lack of timeliness and cost effectiveness

  • We try too hard to justify unviable projects

  • We lack emphasis on the importance of quality assurance and quality products

  • In a budget constrained era, we must do what it takes to Be RELEVANT!!

Transforming civil works

Transforming Civil Works

Infrastructure Strategy

Planning

Budget Development

Methods of Delivery

Planning modernization

Planning Modernization

  • Reduce cost and time to complete feasibility studies (3 years and $3 million maximum)

  • Review ongoing studies – drop those unlikely to lead to projects

  • Instill IWRM into planning process

  • Instill accountability at all levels

  • Improve planner knowledge and experience (build the bench)

  • Modernize planning guidance


Budget development

Budget Development

  • Implement watershed budget development process, while continuing to produce a performance-based budget

  • Prioritize. Fund projects likely to produce greatest benefits to capacity, get them operating, then move on to the next.

  • Avoid “salami slicing” and stop-and-start funding

  • Vertically align and integrate programs and business lines to National goals and objectives

  • Seek alternative funding mechanisms and partnerships

    End state: Maximized value to taxpayers of Civil Works Budget

7


Infrastructure strategy

Infrastructure Strategy

  • An integrated approach to manage our assets, the life cycle of the system and seeking alternative financing:

    • Life cycle system: Ensure future systems’ viability through risk assessment and management, funding prioritization and sound decision making

    • Alternative financing: Provide a safe and reliable infrastructure by looking into alternative financing options

    • Strategic communication: A robust strategy with key messages to increase national attention to water infrastructure, its value to the nation, critical needs and sustainability of our systems

      End state: RELIABLE, SUSTAINABLE INFRASTRUCTURE!

Methods of delivery

Methods of Delivery

  • Relook our methods of delivery to be more efficient, cost-effective & timely

  • Link technical capabilities to desired levels of service

  • Integrate a Human Capital Plan to maintain core competencies

  • Improve operation and management of our water infrastructure-reduce enterprise risk

  • Focus areas-Centers of Expertise (CXs):

    • Dam safety, inland navigation design and deep draft navigation economics

    • USACE received over 68 FEMA Mission Assignments exceeding $350M

    • 10 Mission Assignments for 6 States were received prior to landfall. As unused assignments were de-obligated, total funding authorized dropped just below $250M.

    • USACE received Post Presidential Declaration Mission Assignments totaling $338M: $250M in New York, $85M in New Jersey, $1.9M in Connecticut and $50K in Rhode Island.

    • Several unprecedented Mission Assignments were received that were a significant departure from prior disaster operations:

      • $20M for unwatering missions – a significant increase over previous flooding disasters.

      • $5M to establish a forward C2 node in the disaster affected region

    Hurricane Sandy Response

    Recovery

    • USACE provided contractor debris support for NY State and City. As of 25 Feb 2013, 675,692 Cubic Yards of debris has been removed.

      • USACE in cooperation with State Government and FEMA refitted three buildings (42 Units) for temporary housing at Fort Monmouth, NJ.

  • Repairs have begun on the shoreline breaches in barrier islands throughout New York and New Jersey.
