The mission of the Office of NEPA Policy and Compliance is to assure that the Department’s proposed actions comply with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and related environmental review requirements (e.g., National Historic Preservation Act, Endangered Species Act, Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act, and others) that are necessary prior to project implementation. The Office is the Departmental focal point for NEPA expertise and related activities in all program areas, covering virtually every facet of the Department’s diverse and complex operations.

The Office of NEPA Policy and Compliance also maintains the DOE NEPA Website, which serves as a focal point for DOE NEPA implementation, and contains information about current DOE NEPA events, an electronic archive of DOE NEPA documents, and other resources for NEPA practitioners and members of the public.
