Projects and Activities
Work for non-operational, non-routine maintenance such as road paving, roof replacement, erosion control or utility infrastructure repairs or replacement, i.e. water or sewer systems; work for accessibility and efficiency improvements for existing sites and facilities to realize future operations & maintenance savings; new facility construction within existing recreation areas where such facility construction can be justified on a benefit cost ratio; work that if not accomplished will result in failure of a necessary component of a recreation infrastructure. Work to be done in partnership with other private or public entities which results in leveraging Corps resources.
The Corps will utilize the fundamental principles of Composite Risk Management found in the Army Field Manual 5-19 to assist in identifying and assessing risks; and developing and implementing controls that lead to making the best and most appropriate decisions. Leaders at all levels are responsible for the supervision and evaluation of the Civil Works Recovery Act Program and to ensure appropriate corrective action is applied, as needed.
Throughout the Corps, numerous in-place assessment tools exist that include managing risks in all of our programs. The Corps supplemental guidance developed specifically for monitoring the use of Recovery Act funds provides additional controls to ensure the program’s efficiency, execution and overall success. USACE ARRA Management Control Checklists are designed to capture progress and/or deficiencies in the areas of program performance, reporting, human capital, acquisition processes, financial controls and functionality of operational systems that monitor and report Recovery Act data.
Agency plans and public reporting are accomplished through a number of venues with various reporting frequencies that are aimed at providing assistance and transparent information to the public related to the Corp’s Civil Works Recovery Act Program. These include all mandatory ARRA reports; internal Agency reporting and evaluations; and monthly Project, Directorate, and Command-level Review Boards that specifically address ARRA program progress and issues. The Corps’ Recovery.gov web-site will provide program updates on the Corps web-site located at: http://www.usace.army.mil/RECOVERY.
Cost and Performance Plan
The Corps’ creation of a Headquarters Management Oversight Team to assist in Recovery Act planning and execution provides balance in managing regular Corps work and Recovery Act work. The team’s responsibility includes the tracking of ARRA obligations, contract awards, and financial execution. The team also provides expertise and support in the areas of information management systems, legal review, internal management and small business. The team oversees the ARRA reporting process to ensure the Corps’ program is transparent and maintains its accountability to the American Public.
The Management Oversight Team is facilitated by a Stimulus Project Delivery Team (PDT) that meets weekly to discuss and resolve Recovery Act matters. The Stimulus PDT includes employees assigned to the Directorate of Civil and Emergency Operations, Directorate of Military and International Operations, Office of the Chief Counsel, Office of Internal Review, Office of the Engineer Inspector General, Directorate of Resource Management, Directorate of Contracting, Directorate of Corporate Information, Directorate of Human Resources, and the Offices of Small Business and Public Affairs.
