3 Civil Works Transformation
TARGET AREAS Modernize planning process Enhance the budget development process through a systems-oriented watershed approach, collaboration and innovative funding Evaluate the current and required portfolio of water resources projects through a smart infrastructure strategy to deliver solutions to water resources problems Improve methods of delivery Olmsted - 18 FEB 2014 Aerial View

4 Influences on Future Civil Works Program Funding
Delay in Passing the Budget (Continuing Resolution): Limits new study and new construction starts No Earmarks: Limits Congressional Adds and plus-up to Pres Bud Sequestration / Budget Cuts: Tied to reducing National Debt Inland Waterways Trust Fund: Construction funds limited to revenues National/Regional Priorities: Infrastructure investments that strengthen the national economy, security & quality of life Environmental Conditions: Drought, natural disasters, flooding, = Supplement Funds Budget Transformation: Project-centric to a prioritized systems-based, watershed approach OMB and ASA(CW) Policy: Budget ceilings, Investments must support of national economic and environmental goals Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2013 (WRRDA 2013): Pending authorization Local Sponsor/Stakeholder Partnerships: Cost Sharing Requirements Pending Authorization (WRDA): (H.R and S. 601) Reflects momentum in both houses to codify internal initiatives to streamline the CW process. SMART Planning, 3x3x3 initiative, expanding economic benefits categories Offers new opportunities to expand the "credited, contributed and voluntary funds" methods for project development & implementation, reflects an understanding that future EWA budgets will be further constrained, explores alternative sources. Makes USACE develop a list of 15 (+/-) projects in a Pilot Program that would be ceded over to the local interests (including the associated Federal funds GI, CG) for implementation Olmsted L&D: both houses indicate a desire to change the cost sharing equation with the IWTF Identifies the Great Lakes as a separate entity & establish new priorities for the HMTF Requires USACE to produce additional reports on Olmsted cost overruns Sets a annual National funding limit on DS program (Approx $9.2 million) Requires USACE to study & revise current levee vegetation requirements Re-establishes an automatic De-authorization process, designed to reduce the National backlog of authorized projects, resulting in possibility of LRD authorized projects at Greenup, SOO and JT Myers be de-Authorized

11 What is Changing in Military Programs?
FY13 – Project Funding reduced iaw Sequester. Still recovering from its impacts. FY14 & Beyond – Whole Projects Delayed/Eliminated within Service Priorities BRAC 17 ? – DOD Consolidating using Existing Space to Reduce Support Costs Reduction in MILCON program and number of projects Increased potential requirements for Restoration and Modernization of existing facilities Emphasis on design and material requirements for reduced energy demand and sustainability due to Executive Orders and 13514 Executive Order of January 24, 2007 Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management “…to strengthen the environmental, energy, and transportation management of Federal agencies…” “…improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions of the agency, through reduction of energy intensity by 30 percent by the end of fiscal year 2015, relative to the baseline of the agency’s energy use in fiscal year 2003…” “…ensure that at least half of the statutorily required renewable energy consumed by the agency in a fiscal year comes from new renewable sources, and to the extent feasible, the agency implements renewable energy generation projects on agency property for agency use…” Executive Order of October 5, 2009 Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance “… to establish an integrated strategy towards sustainability in the Federal Government and to make reduction of greenhouse gas emissions a priority for Federal agencies…” “…to create a clean energy economy that will increase our Nation’s prosperity, promote energy security, protect the interests of taxpayers, and safeguard the health of our environment, the Federal Government must lead by example. It is therefore the policy of the United States that Federal agencies shall increase energy efficiency…” -26% reduction in potable water use by 2020 versus 2008 Baseline. -50% reduction in solid waste (to include construction and demolition) by 2015 versus 2008 Baseline. -All buildings from 2020 and thereafter are designed to achieve zero-net-energy by 2030. Joliet ARC

12 What does that mean to us?
Installations will need support to develop project proposals that show Life-Cycle Costs that meet or beat new construction Retrofit facilities to support functional changes – Flexible Use Reduce reliance on national grid utilities Reduce Demand Use on-site renewable energy source NET ZERO by 2020 What does that mean to us? Be prepared to respond to: 1) Installations will need support to develop project proposals showing life-cycle-costs that will meet or beat the cost of new construction. 2) Successful projects will support the leadership's priorities for retrofitting facilities to support functional changes that are estimated to be required well into the future (flexible use) and … 3) that reduce the reliance on utilities taken from the national grid (reduce demand and/or use on-site renewable energy power source). + The Army is striving to manage our natural resources with a net zero strategy by: 1. Producing as much energy as we use 2. Capturing or reusing water equal to use 3. Eliminating solid waste disposal NET ZERO can only be achieved by 2020 through the use of various Thir Party financing options, which will be employed by the military installations.

15 LRD Military Outlook: Total Military Program (as of 14 Apr 2014)
BRAC Workload peaked in FY 09, and complete by Sep 2011 by statute. MILCON workload peaked in 2012 at a high of $878.1M and has shown a steady decline through FY16 before steadying out. MILCON This is a $76M reduction versus last year Installation Support O&M Support to DPWs is staying even to this point Environmental This is a $10M reduction versus last year International and Interagency Services This is a minor reduction versus last year Biggest clients EPA, VA, DOE and DHS.
