The Risk Management Center (RMC) is under the organizational umbrella of the USACE Institute for Water Resources (IWR). Similar to the other IWR centers, RMC activities span across many business lines and other units in the Corps.
Engineering and Construction Integration
The RMC is active within the Engineering and Construction Community of Practice (CoP) and within some of the major CoPs under Engineering and Construction. The three primary CoPs that the RMC works with are the Geotechnical CoP, the Structural CoP, and the H&H CoP. For these three CoPs, RMC management and staff work closely with the CoP leads and Subject Matter Experts (SME) within each CoP. The RMC also works with the Mechanical CoP and Construction CoP.
Major Subordinate Commands and Districts
Major Subordinate Command (MSC) staff, District staff, and RMC staff mutually support each other to accomplish the Corps’ overall dam and levee safety workload. The RMC leads activities to prioritize activities for all staff involved with these efforts. Led by an RMC facilitator, Districts field either partial cadres or full cadres to support risk assessments Corps-wide.
The RMC has working relationships with MSC Dam and Levee Safety Program Managers and Dam and Levee Safety Officers. The RMC works closely with the MSCs, particularly with Agency Technical Review and Independent External Peer Review activities.
The RMC has working relationships with District Dam and Levee Safety Program Managers and Dam and Levee Safety Officers. The RMC works closely with the districts on routine dam safety activities, Issue Evaluation Studies, and Dam Safety Modification Studies.
