Washington, D.C.– Army for Civil Works Assistant Secretary R.D. James has directed the U.S. Army Corps of Engineering (USACE) Civil Works to establish a public-private partnership (P3) pilot program. The goal of the pilot program is to demonstrate the viability of new delivery methods that can significantly reduce the cost and time of project delivery. The program is part of the Revolutionize USACE Civil Works initiative which is transforming how USACE delivers infrastructure for the nation through authorized Civil Works projects and permitting of infrastructure projects.
USACE Civil Works is to identify up to 10 P3 pilot projects based on specific screening and selection criteria. The pilots will inform future program policy and direction. Information must be submitted on or before April 2, to be eligible for consideration. USACE has scheduled two webinars to answer questions about the pilot program. The webinars are Feb. 7, from 2-3:30 p.m. and Feb. 13, from 1-2:30 p.m. Central Standard Time.
