In May of 1990 the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers embarked on a new initiative designed to meet the country's aging environmental infrastructure needs and increasing regulatory and environmental requirements. This new program has been coined Partners for Environmental Progress, or PEP. PEP focuses on the restoration of a variety of environmental quality support services, including water supply, wastewater treatment, solid waste management, and waste-to-energy generation programs. Through PEP the Corps joins with a local entity, or Sponsor, to produce a Market Feasibility Study (MFS). The MFS is devised to determine opportunities for, and to encourage the inception of environmental infrastructure privatization. During fiscal year (FY) 1992, the Army Corps began thirteen PEP projects, each to be completed in November of that year. During the summer of 1992, I spent time working with the PEP project manager at the Huntington District. Many inadequacies related to the management of a particular project became apparent to me. This thesis focuses on these problems and offers a few suggestions to enhance future projects in this promising new program.
