DOD/COE RIN: 0710-AA93 Publication ID: Fall 2020 
Title: Continuing Authorities Programs 

The existing regulation provides policies and procedures for seven legislative authorities under which the Secretary of the Army, acting through the Chief of Engineers, is authorized to plan, design and construct certain types of small-scale water resource improvements without a specific project authorization. The projects developed through these Continuing Authorities Program authorities are of limited size, scope and complexity. The existing regulation is redundant and out of date. This final rule action is largely administrative in nature, by repealing this regulation, the action will provide clarity and reduce confusion to the public. The same content can be found in the Corps’ publication of appendix F (Continuing Authorities Program) in ER 1105-2-100, Planning Guidance Notebook. The rule does not place a burden on the public, therefore its repeal does not provide a burden reduction or cost savings. The ER-1105-2-100 guidance can be found online for the public at: This removal supports a recommendation of the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force.
