    Other Policy

    • Cooperative Agreements
      • Partnerships - The Corps will seek opportunities to develop cooperative partnerships with the array of private and public organizations and agencies that share our various planning, construction, engineering, recreation, and environmental interests.

    • Americans with Disabilities Act
      • a. The Corps should be in compliance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended. This act requires that "all programs and facilities be to the highest degree feasible, readily accessible and usable by all persons who have a disability, including mobility, visual, hearing, or mental impairments."

        b. AR 600-7 (1983) requires DOD facilities to conduct self-assessment. Think about your programs, not just drinking fountains and walkways.
