overview of current challenges
Army moving into the most comprehensive restructuring since WWII

USACE is planning to execute $40 Billion of MILCON Construction from 2006 – 2011

At FLW alone, our construction placement will increase from about $40 Million a year to over $200 Million a year through FY 08 and FY 09

Overview of Current Challenges
overview of current challenges1
The army is transforming and has immediate needs that must be met to support BRAC and the GTA Programs as well as re-stationing initiatives:

The recently released Army Stationing Plan, for example, will add approximately 74K new Soldiers to the Army over the next 2-4 years

This plan will also add 6 new BCTs and 8 new MEBs which will be disbursed at various posts across the country

This plan also re-stations units formerly stationed overseas to CONUS military bases

FLW for example is receiving approximately 3,000 plus additional trainees this summer through the TRAPS program and is also receiving a FORSCOM MEB in October

Creates Need for additional Barracks Bed Space, family housing, dining facilities, etc…)

Creates Need for additional infrastructure (sewage, water, phone lines, roads, training ranges, parking, etc… to support influx of personnel)

Overview of Current Challenges
overview of current challenges2
The GWOT has created several unique demands:

USACE oversees massive construction programs supporting OIF and OEF through the GRD and AED

On the home front, the army is also involved in improving living conditions and programs for soldiers and families to take care of them and improve retention rates (Examples: improving housing, post facilities, Warrior in Transition Units, etc…)

Overview of Current Challenges
overview of current challenges3
To support these and many other programs, the army has a need for USACE to deliver projects faster and cheaper with more sustainable designs and without diminishing quality

In order to stay relevant in meeting the Army’s needs, USACE is itself transforming and thinking outside of the box and changing its systems and ways of doing business

MILCON Transformation

At the local level, we are also doing a lot to stay relevant and meet our immediate customer’s needs and expectations

Overview of Current Challenges

What is Important at FLW?
  • IET Soldier Bed Space (TRAPS Relocatables, TBUP, and Starship Barracks)
