The commander's intent is for USACE continues to increase its public value:
...as a National asset that provides leadership and technical expertise in formulating and implementing water resources, environmental stewardship, and broader sustainable infrastructure policies and solutions;
...as a Department of Defense asset that is the principal advisor for engineering, the design and construction execution agent for the Army and Air Force, and a provider of infrastructure related services throughout the facilities life cycle; and
...as a Professional asset that maintains strong in-house engineering, project management, and other technical capabilities required to execute federal responsibilities and satisfy stakeholder requirements, while providing national technical and warfighting leadership in our mission areas.
