Army Corps of Engineers: Cost Increases in Flood Control Projects and Improving Communication with Nonfederal Sponsors
Anne-Marie Fennell (au)
For FY 2012, Congress appropriated almost $1.7 billion to the Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) for its Civil Works program to construct a wide range of projects, including flood control projects. Flood control projects require congressional authorization and appropriations. Nonfederal sponsors, such as a state or local government, also provide funds. When Congress approves a project for construction, it authorizes a total cost for the project based on estimates prepared by the Corps, and this authorized cost provides the basis for the projectšůĽs maximum cost. This report examines (1) the extent to which cost increases occurred and the primary factors that contributed to the differences between estimated and actual costs; (2) the extent to which the Corps communicated with and provided updated information to nonfederal sponsors; and (3) Corps guidance on communication with such sponsors and ways, if any, to improve such communication. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
