Federal Transit Administration Project Management Oversight

New York, New York
DEA was selected to assist the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) with project management oversight (PMO) services beginning in 2004. Now completing our second five-year contract, DEA works closely with staff of the FTA Region 2 Lower Manhattan Recovery Office on federally-funded recovery projects in the implementation phase. PMO services include review of the activities of the sponsoring agency, designers, and contractors to verify that they have sufficient technical capacity and capability to execute the projects. DEA also monitors budget, schedule, construction progress, and safety and quality management compliance. Risk assessment and risk management are central features of the risk-informed oversight that DEA provides FTA. As part of our contract, in addition to the oversight of the Lower Manhattan Recovery projects, DEA performs programmatic task orders for FTA Headquarters.

Coos Bay Channel Modification (Section 204(f)/408 Report)

Coos Bay, Oregon
As larger port authorities reach capacity on the US West Coast, small to mid-size ports are seeking opportunities for economic development by expanding their facilities. In order to authorize the channel as a federal channel eligible for maintenance dredging by the USACE, the Port is conducting a study of potential navigation improvements under the authority granted by Section 204(f) of the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA), 1986. The Port will propose modifications to the Lower Coos Bay Navigation Channel, to accommodate larger deep draft vessels while providing a net positive local, state, and federal economic and environmental benefit. DEA is assisting the Port with permitting, land and water-based surveys, USACE coordination, and other project development services for this important regional project.
