Interagency and International Services

Border Crossing constructionThe Corps of Engineers has the authority to provide reimbursable specialized or technical services to other Federal agencies, States, local units of government, and Indian Tribes.

Most interagency services customers for the St. Paul District are domestic Federal agencies. For Federal agencies, the Corps performs inherently governmental functions, such as program management, engineering, environmental programs, construction management, real estate support, research and development, and other related services, while serving as extensions of their staffs. The Corps is able to offer agencies use of Corps management and technical expertise to assist them in accomplishing the engineering, environmental restoration, and construction aspects of their mission.

The St. Paul District staff annually provides approximately $1 to $2 million in support to other Federal, State, and local governments.
