Abstract : This study examined the perceptions of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE) and the U.S. Air Force (USAF) Base Civil Engineering (BCE) managers regarding the management relationships between the COE and the USAF during the transition of a Military Construction Program (MCP) Facility from the construction agent (COE) to the user (USAF). The study resulted in three types of perceptions: (1) congruent perceptions in which both agencies agreed that a suspected problem area was really not a problem, (2) congruent perceptions in which both agencies agreed that a suspected problem area was indeed perceived to be a problem, and (3) conflicting perceptions in which the COE and the USAF disagreed on whether a suspected problem area was a problem or not.
