Does the Directors Policy Memorandum replace or change SMART Planning milestones?
No. This memorandum does not replace or change SMART Planning milestones. This memorandum requires USACE PDTs to apply
SMART Planning approaches, with an emphasis on the R in SMART - Risk-Informed. The memorandum places risk assessment, risk
communication, and risk management at the center of the decisions and discussions that are part of the Civil Works project planning
and development process. (July 2018)
