Although project and study capabilities reflect the readiness of the work for accomplishment, they are in competition for available funds and manpower Army-wide. In this context, the FY15 capability amounts shown on each project update consider each project or study by itself without reference to the rest of the program. However, it is emphasized that the total amount proposed for the Army’s Civil Works Program in the President’s budget for FY15 is the appropriate amount consistent with the Administration’s assessment of national priorities for Federal investments. In addition, the total amount proposed for the Army’s Civil Works Program in the President’s Budget is the maximum that can be efficiently and effectively used. Therefore, while the USACE Fort Worth District could utilize additional funds on individual projects and studies, offsetting reductions would be required in order to maintain our overall budgetary objectives.
