New features in the software are funded by multiple sources, (1) USACE Research & Development, General Investigation, and special programs, (2) projects for District offices or their local partners, and (3)
agreements with other Federal and State agencies. If you are part of USACE, you can request a new feature. If you do not know who to contact in your chain-of-command to begin the process, please contact
CEIWR-HEC and we will reply with an appropriate Point-of-Contact for your office.
The HEC-HMS development team has some discretion to suggest features to the two groups listed above. Our decision to make recommendations is based, (1) monitoring the important journals publishing research in
hydrology, and (2) recurrent expression of user needs and suggestions. When the same need or suggestion is expressed by many different users, then CEIWR-HEC recommends it for inclusion in the software. Priority
is given to new features that affect most users. If you have an idea for improving the software, you may e-mail the development team at firstname.lastname@example.org or add
the suggestion to the HEC-HMS Discourse Webpage.
