The Corps Resident Engineerby Robert B. Jaggard, Construction Policy Branch, US Army Corps of Engineers, United States,
Abstract: The term 'Resident Engineer' in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is given to the individual in charge of a field office administering construction contracts. The Resident Engineer has two types of authority: general and special. Regulations and policies promulgated by the Chief of Engineers supplemented by the District Engineer form the basis of the general duties of the Resident Engineer. Special contracting authority is delegated by certificate from the Division Engineer and a letter from the Contracting Officer defining limits if any for each contract. This paper discusses duties and responsibilities of the resident engineer, ethics, construction process improvement, and other aspects of the subject.
