Value Engineering (VE) is a step beyond the traditional engineering analysis. Experiences have shown that application of the VE techniques during the design of a project results in significant cost savings. Reports of the application of VE to municipal waste-water treatment works show that VE is beneficial to increase cost effectiveness in the EPA construction grants program. The billions of dollars required to construct and operate the nation's water pollution control projects indicates that even a small percentage of savings would result in substantial dollar savings. This handbook is intended to provide the administrative support and management procedures required by grant applicants and design engineers to conduct a voluntary VE program. Grant applicants and designers should be aware of potential benefits provided by VE analysis and are encouraged to use it whenever appropriate.
