United States Army Corps of Engineers announced Tuesday that it will reorganized its corps of engineers in 2019 and that it plans to hire 200 engineers.
The corps, which operates in more than 1,400 federal, state and local agencies, includes some of the largest contractors in the world, including the construction industry, telecommunications and oil and gas industries.
It is the first time that the corps has restructured since the 2010 construction of the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Texas, which was led by the Corps of Engineering.
It also is the latest in a series of changes at the Corps that could have a major impact on the future of the federal government.
Last week, the Corps announced that it would move some of its headquarters from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, to Fort Belvoir, Virginia, because of a shortage of workforce.
In addition, the corps announced that its workforce would be reduced by a third, or 1,100.
On Wednesday, the administration also announced that the United States will start a new $300 million pilot program for the construction of an oil pipeline from North Dakota to the Gulf Coast, which would use oil and natural gas from the Bakken Shale.
The Corps also announced it will expand the number of workers needed to operate the pipelines, which it has been trying to ramp up since the 2016 presidential election.
