The Corps of Engineers Planning Excellence Program is designed to build planning and capability now and for the future. Economics is a vital component of the planning process and updating the National Economic Development manual series is a key element of the Planning Excellence Program.

This manual provides an overview of basic economic concepts and measures underlying the use of National Economic Development (NED) analysis in civil works planning studies. It was developed to complement the series of separate Procedures Manuals that provide detailed procedural guidance on computing NED benefits for different NED purposes.
