I have a section full of FE-certified employees, but with Back-to-Basics rolling out, it appears as if FE is going to end without any inheritance for the new certifications.  A spreadsheet for mass re-coding of slots went out, and the default that the spreadsheet suggests is to convert FE slots into ETM (Engineering and Technical Management), likely becasue it has "Engineering" in the title.  ETM is a mixture of the old IT, PQM, ENG, and STM certifications. An FE to ETM conversion doesn't seem like the best idea, especially since current FE certified employees inherit nothing in the new system and would have to start from scratch.  Was this a conscious decision to essentially eliminate the FE career field  in Back-to-Basics?

​President Trump released his Executive Report outlining his Reform Plan and Reorganization Recommendations last week. One of the major proposed reforms is to move the US Army Corps of Engineers Civil Works mission out of the DoD and into the Dept of Transportation (DOT) and Department of Interior (DOI) to consolidate and align the Corps' Civil Works missions with other agencies. It moves the commercial navigation mission to DOT and the remaining Civil Works missions (flood and storm damage
reduction, aquatic ecosystem restoration, regulatory and all other activities) to DOI.
