U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Fort McCoy Project Office

(Editor’s note: This is the first “SPOTLIGHT,” a series about tenant activities at Fort McCoy and their missions.)

What is it?
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Fort McCoy Project Office, provides oversight of civilian contractors who are involved with military construction projects at the installation. The branch was a tenant activity at Fort McCoy from 1990-2001. It was reestablished as a tenant in 2004. The branch is aligned under the Fort Crook Area Office of Omaha District.

In the future the USACE will oversee the completion of the Noncommissioned Officer Academy campus, which includes a barracks, classroom facility and dining facility. The classroom facility construction will begin this fall. Construction of an annual training/mobilization barracks facility also is scheduled for the fall.

Why are they important?
The USACE is in a management position over civilian contractors to ensure construction projects at Fort McCoy are completed safely, on time and are of the highest quality. The office field reps conduct on-site inspections and work directly with the contractors on projects.
