Planning plays a vital role in supporting the Corps of Engineers Civil Works
water resources development mission. Through planning activities, including
feasibility studies, General and Limited Reevaluation Studies, Continuing
Authorities Program studies, and Post Authorization Change studies, Corps
planners help decision-makers identify water resources problems, conceive
solutions to them and compare the importance of the inevitable conflicting
values inherent in any solution.
The Planning Community Toolbox includes a wealth of information for planners and project delivery teams, including the policy, guidance, processes, and tools that are used every day in planning.
USACE Planner Database - It is time for all Planners to update their profiles. The USACE Planner Database has updated functionality and flexibility for recording Planning CoP training, workforce planning, and staffing ATR teams. |
SMART Planning Feasibility Studies: A Guide to Coordination and Engagement with the Services - This guide was developed through a collaboration between the Corps, USFWS and NMFS. The Guide provides an overview of the SMART Planning process and demonstrates how key environmental coordination and compliance activities fit into that process. The Guide highlights opportunities for engagement and coordination at all stages of a planning study, re-emphasizing the need for early coordination.
Single Phase Feasibility Study Resources - Resources for District Project Delivery Teams and non-Federal sponsors beginning single phase feasibility studies post WRRDA 2014. Materials such as fact sheets and memos can be customized by the teams as needed and reflect single phase feasibility studies (no reconnaissance phase), the 3x3 rule, and SMART Planning Milestones and Processes per WRRDA Sections 1001 and 1002.
