Abstract : At the request of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE) Institute for Water Resources (IWR), the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) undertook a cooperative project with the American Public Works Association (APWA). Twelve visits were made to state, county, city, and town governments -- selected to be illustrative of the country -- to review the progress of their public works departments in adopting the newly developed Public Works Management Practices Manual of APWA. These 417 practices grouped into 29 major areas such as Solid Wastes, Transportation, and Emergency Management, were the result of intensive work by a number of committees in APWA. The Academy's job was to identify federal laws or regulations which were preventing implementation of the practices.
