Statements of Need
The Corps of Engineers Research Directorate, a part of Corps Headquarters, has initiated a new process for developing R&D programs. That process starts with statements of need (SONs) prepared by Corps field offices. Those needs become requirements for research and development. The needs are ultimately prioritized by headquarters and given to the Research Directorate to tackle.

Within the environmental area, we are soliciting SONs to:

  • Maximize Value of the Corps’ Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration Program to the Nation
      Advance the Corps’ capabilities to maximize beneficial socioecological outcomes of aquatic ecosystem restoration at regional and national levels.
  • Ensure Ecological Integrity and Sustainability of Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration Projects
      Develop new science and engineering tools to substantially improve and apply hydro-geomorphic and biotic components of ecosystem restoration projects and to promote ecosystem integrity and sustainability of Corps ecosystem restoration projects.
  • Improve Capabilities to Design and Implement Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration in Urban Settings
      Develop ecological engineering tools and capabilities to maximize restoration benefits, including multi-purpose benefits, in urban settings.
  • Enhance Resilience and Reliability of Coastal Ecosystem Restoration
      Develop tools, guidelines and capabilities to incorporate risk and uncertainties associated with climate change and sea level rise on coastal ecosystem restoration and multi-purpose projects that include restoration and coastal flood damage reduction.
  • Impact and Relationship of Species (Threatened and Endangered and Invasive) on Ecosystem Restoration and Operations
      Advance the Corps’ capabilities to detect, monitor and evaluate key species that significantly influence restoration activities and/or operations.

Point of Contact: Dr. Jen Seiter-Moser, Acting Technical Director, Civil Works Environmental Engineering and Science
