Module 23STEPS 15 & 16 Preconstruction Engineering and Design (PED) and Other Decision Documents

Civil Works Orientation Course - FY 11


Objective:

  • Understand the process for execution of a PED agreement.

  • Understand what is the purpose of PED and what documents are completed in the PED phase.


STEP 15 PED Agreement


Preconstruction Engineeringand Design

  • Currently cost-shared:

    • 75% - Federal

    • 25% - Non-Federal*

  • NEW!! In-kind credits allowed per Section 2003 WRDA 2007

    Model PED agreements & checklist on disc

*this is just a down payment – balance collected during construction


Preconstruction Engineeringand Design Agreement

  • There are models for:

    • Single Purpose Navigation & Flood Risk Management Only

    • PED Agreement Checklist to HQ RIT for certification - 30 days prior to DE signature

  • Similar to FCSA

  • HQUSACE approves all Other PED Agreements

  • No PED work or issuance of contract until Agreement executed

  • District Engineer executes approved agreements


Preconstruction Engineeringand Design Agreement Checklist

  • General information

  • Cost sharing summary

  • Funding history

  • Special conditions

  • Review requirements, Sponsor

  • and Corps


STEP 16 Conduct PED


Purpose of PED

  • Complete the detailed engineering & technical studies and design needed to begin construction of the project recommended in the decision document.

  • Preparation of plans and specifications of first significant construction contract

  • (NEW!!) Section 2035 WRDA 07 Safety Assurance Review – Calls for independent review of flood and hurricane/storm projects if Chief of Engineers determines that it is necessary to assure public health, safety, and welfare.


Preconstruction Engineeringand Design

  • Starts after Division Engineer’s Transmittal Letter & execution of PED agreement

  • Ends with completion of first set of construction plans and specifications


Preconstruction Engineeringand Design

  • Usually requires about two years to complete

  • Usually overlaps with the end of the feasibility phase.

  • Must keep PED funds separate from feasibility review funds


Preconstruction Engineeringand Design

  • Major Documents in PED:

    • Plans and specifications (P&S)

    • Design Documentation Report (DDR)

    • Draft Project Partnership Agreement (PPA)

    • Limited Reevaluation Reports (LRR) - Primarily for required economic/environmental updates

    • Real Estate Design Memorandums


Preconstruction Engineeringand Design

  • Plans and specifications:

  • Form the technical portion of the contract documents

  • Used to solicit bids from private contractors

  • Approved at the District

  • Used to construct the project


PED Coordination Team

  • Co-chaired by Corps project manager and sponsors counterpart

  • Oversees issues related to PED

    • Scheduling

    • Work Products

    • Plans and Specifications

    • Contract Award and Modification

    • Other Related Activities


Other Documents

  • Other reports may be prepared during PED and/or other project phases for use as Decision Documents or Implementation Documents


Implementation Documents

Any report prepared for the purpose of implementing a project in accordance with its authorization

- O&M Manual

- Detailed engineering reports

- Plans & Specifications


Decision Document

  • Any report prepared for the purpose of :

    • obtaining project authorization, modification, or Washington level approval;

    • obtaining commitment of Federal funds for project implementation; or

    • obtaining approval to spend and receive money as a result of entering into an agreement.


Decision Documents

  • Obtaining project authorization, modification, or verification:

    • Reconnaissance Report*

    • Feasibility Report

    • Limited Reevaluation Reports**

    • General Reevaluation Reports (GRR)**

    • Post Authorization Change (Section 902) Report

    • Detailed Project Report*

    • Major Rehabilitation Report

      * Approval at MSC

      ** Approval at MSC if no additional Congressional action required


Decision Documents

  • Obtaining project authorization - modification:

    • Dam Safety Report

    • Design Deficiency Report

    • Dredged Material Management Plans*

    • Water Supply Reallocation Report

      * Approval at MSC


Other Decision Points

  • Reports in defense of budgetary decision(s)

  • Project Partnership Agreements

  • Credit Agreements

  • Memorandums of Agreement

  • Feasibility Cost Sharing Agreements

  • PED Cost Sharing Agreements

  • Water Supply Contracts
