The Programs and Project Management Division is responsible for managing U.S. Army Corps of Engineers projects from the study phase through construction completion--including an inspection and assistance role throughout the operation and maintenance of the project.
The typical phases of a project are:
- Planning Phase
- Preconstruction, Engineering and Design Phase (including the development of plans and specifications)
- Construction Phase
- Operation and Maintenance Phase
Typically, a Corps project has a sponsor that cost-shares the study, design, and construction costs, and then operates and maintains the project upon completion. Also, there are other interested parties, environmental groups, organizations, other Corps offices, and governmental agencies that are partners or 'stakeholders' involved in the planning and review process.
This Division includes project managers, budget and program analysts, project schedulers and support staff.
