Tools

    Planners use many tools: templates, models, applications and more. This tab contains some helpful tools.

  • Agreements
      Feasibility Cost Sharing Agreements (FCSAs), Project Partnership Agreements (PPAs), Memorandum of Agreement (MOA)s, Memorandum of Understanding (MOUs), Model Agreements, Local Cooperation Agreements (LCA) and more.
  • Delegations
      With decision makers at all levels of the Corps – including: the District, Division (MSC), USACE Headquarters, and Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works) – it is the intent to "power down" planning decisions, approvals, and actions to the most appropriate levels of the organization.
  • Civil Works Budget
      Explanations, guidance, and links to the resources that determine the Corps of Engineer’s annual budget (the funding levels and distribution of funding proposed by the President in the Administration’s Budget) and appropriations (the funding levels and distribution of funding passed by the Congress and signed by the President each fiscal year).
  • Risk-Informed Decision Making and Planning Support Tools
