DOE's Reorganization of its EERE Office Earns Praise

DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) has earned praise from the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) for its reorganization. Assistant Secretary David Garman, who heads the office, set the reorganization in motion in July 2002 to achieve better results in EERE's programs and activities. After a unique assessment of the reorganization, a NAPA report released on September 7th concluded "EERE has demonstrated that much can be achieved in a relatively short period of time if top management is committed to doing so." The study credits EERE's creation of a management action plan for much of the success. The study is actually the result of a collaborative 18-month effort, during which a 5-member panel of the Academy continually provided recommendations to EERE. See the DOE press release as well as the announcement and a link to the full report on the NAPA home page.
