Planning Modernization is a central component of the Corps’ Civil Works Transformation efforts, building a sustainable Civil Works Planning Program that delivers quality products and decisions. This will be achieved by:
- Investing in our People: improving planner knowledge and experience through training and other opportunities, and creating a sustainable national and regional planning operation and organization;
- Managing a Portfolio of Projects: focusing available funding on the most credible and viable projects for Congressional authorization and ensuring consideration of study objectives throughout the lifecycle of Corps projects; and
- Transforming Planning Processes: bringing increased efficiency and efficacy to the processes the Corps uses to make decisions and produce planning decision documents.
Planning Modernization efforts in FY13 have focused on portfolio management and improved delivery of planning processes. In FY14, supporting the long-term sustainability of the Planning program and improving the efficiency of delivery will be examined as we look to transform Planning Operation and Organization.
