This presentation highlights decreasing trends in funding for certain federal programs and then presents an adaptive management strategy that helps move projects forward.  The data utilized in the presentation is from groundwater clean-up projects where the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Defense, among others, are stakeholders.  The strategy, as detailed in a case study from one of the projects where it was implemented, is a process that leverages a handful of actionable practices that focus on timely, critical, and cost-reducing outcomes, with a result of being able to pursue additional tasks or applying the savings to other programs.
