The USACE district in Afghanistan (TAA) constructs facilities that contribute to the fielding of Afghan National Army and Afghan National Police units – referred to as Afghan National Security Forces. The district is constructing provincial and district police headquarters facilities, regional administration buildings for the Ministry of Interior, training areas, army bases, hospitals, and joint regional compounds. The program also includes teaching the Afghans how to operate and maintain their facilities, thus enabling them to ensure their facilities remain mission ready.
In addition, the USACE district is completing projects funded through the Afghan Infrastructure Fund, an authority granted by Congress in the 2011 National Defense Authorization Act to provide funding for water, power and transportation projects that support the counterinsurgency strategy and provide facilities that improve the lives of Afghan citizens. Projects include power plants, transmission lines and substations, hydropower and water supply.
TAA will be seeking Area Engineers in Fall 2015 and numerous Resident Engineer positions through the duration of TAA.
At times, shorter deployments of 90-120 days may be available as part of surge teams. Interested USACE employees should contact their local Deployment Coordination Administrator to learn more about the availability of these opportunities.
