The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Albuquerque District was established in 1935 to oversee the construction of Conchas Dam. Almost 80 years later, USACE project managers run a variety of large military and non-military projects across New Mexico and the southwest. The Albuquerque District manages projects for the Army, Air Force, Border Patrol, Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Nuclear Security Agency, to name a few. The USACE also administers contract actions for all types of projects, from solicitation, to award of a contract, and oversight of contractor performance. Hear about different projects the Albuquerque District manages, and how shrinking budgets are leading to a leaner and more responsive USACE work force with more emphasis on sustainability and energy efficiency.
