Energy Department Infrastructure Improvement Plan

AGENCY PLAN FOR IMPROVING PERFORMANCE OF FEDERAL PERMITTING AND REVIEW OF INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS

On March 22, 2012, the President issued Executive Order 13604 (EO), which is intended to improve the performance of Federal agencies in the permitting and review of infrastructure projects.  Among its many objectives, the EO describes the President’s government-wide initiative to modernize Federal permitting and review processes to achieve better projects, improve environmental and community outcomes, and shorten decision-making and review timelines for infrastructure projects. 

This Department of Energy (DOE) Agency Plan describes DOE’s efforts to implement the Federal Plan, including DOE-specific strategies and actions to improve performance, reduce the time required for permitting and review decisions, and improve community and environmental outcomes for proposed infrastructure projects.
