Contents Background. -- Nonfederal sponsors may conduct feasibility studies and construct water resources projects under various statutory authorities. -- The number of federal water resources projects undertaken by nonfederal sponsors and the amounts reimbursed to them cannot be reliably determined. -- Corps district officials and nonfederal sponsors identified several lessons learned based on their experiences with projects led by nonfederal sponsors. -- Conclusions. -- Recommendations for executive action. -- Agency comments.
Summary Through its Civil Works program, the Corps designs, constructs, and maintains federal water resources projects, such as levees for flood risk management. Under certain authorities, nonfederal sponsors, such as states and local governments, may undertake studies or construct projects and may be eligible for reimbursement or credit for the federal share of costs. GAO was asked to examine federal water resources projects undertaken by nonfederal sponsors. This report examines (1) the authorities enabling nonfederal sponsors to undertake studies or projects, (2) the extent to which such sponsors have undertaken federal projects and the information the Corps has about them, and (3) the Corps' and sponsors' views on lessons learned from projects. GAO recommends that the Corps develop guidance for accurate recording of transactions and other relevant information about projects undertaken by nonfederal sponsors.
