The Office of Science (SC) has a NEPA Compliance Officer on staff to coordinate all NEPA compliance and support matters at its laboratories. Responsibilities include managing the review and approval of NEPA documentation of SC Headquarter programs, and working with Department of Energy (DOE) Science programs and other DOE Headquarters Program Offices conducting research at SC facilities. SC takes a proactive approach in meeting the environmental and decision-making goals of NEPA and associated Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations by developing and implementing:

  • Policy and management expectations
  • NEPA guidance and procedures
  • NEPA Quality Awards program to recognize achievements
