Project Review Plans

A Review Plan is essential to ensuring project safety and quality of the products USACE provides to the American people. Review Plans identify the types of actions that are required during the planning of a project. These review actions may address quality, engineering methods, economic models and several other considerations. These plans provide the Chief of Engineers with an independent assessment of the project or work product. In developing Review Plans, USACE is responsible for providing an opportunity for public comment and for considering those comments in deciding the type of review to be carried out. Review Plans shall be published on the district’s public website.
