Bureau Posts Vacancy Announcements in Nationwide Search

WASHINGTON – The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) today announced it is seeking to fill two key positions for the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE), one of the two new bureaus that will start operating on Oct. 1, 2011, as part of the reorganization of the former Minerals Management Service (MMS).

The positions to be filled are a first-ever Environmental Enforcement Officer and the Regulations Development Branch Supervisor.

“These are extremely important leadership positions for BSEE, and the individuals selected must be not only exceptionally well qualified with a commitment to public service, but aggressive in their approach to regulatory oversight,” said BOEMRE Director Michael R. Bromwich. “The Deepwater Horizon tragedy made it very clear that the regulatory oversight and enforcement programs in the former MMS needed to be bolstered significantly. As we continue our aggressive reform efforts, it is important that we fill these positions now to ensure our programs are ready to operate at full speed when the new bureaus begin their operations later this year.”

The Environmental Enforcement Officer is a new position created during BOEMRE’s re-organization. The individual selected will be responsible for program direction and oversight, developing new approaches to environmental inspection and enforcement and ensuring bureau decisions appropriately apply and enforce relevant laws and regulations including the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and the National Environmental Policy Act. Duties will include evaluating the effectiveness of environmental monitoring programs and mitigation measures and taking enforcement actions to ensure industry compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

President Obama’s fiscal year 2012 budget request would provide for a total of 33 new employees to develop new, independent environmental compliance capabilities. These resources will be used to develop and implement enhanced environmental inspection and enforcement procedures.

The Regulations Development Branch Supervisor will be responsible for directing the national program for assessing, developing and promulgating regulations relating to oversight of offshore energy development operations. The individual selected will also be responsible for participating in the development of industry standards and incorporating such standards into BSEE regulations.
