a. Conventional Process. The conventional project development process normally used to
prepare contract documents for large MILCON installation projects, can be unnecessarily costly
and time consuming when applied to small projects. The process for scoping, designing, and
awarding of small Installation Support projects should not be the same as for a MILCON project.
b. Re-engineering Process.
(1) The need to reduce time and cost, and improve quality and customer satisfaction for
small Installation Support projects requires that USACE re-engineer the entire process. Despite
the current shortfall in funds and resources, design agencies must continue to dedicate their
resources for Installation Support and forge close and responsive working relationships with
installation Directors of Public Works (DPW).
(2) The Installation Support process provided in this AEI dramatically reduces production
