OAK RIDGE, Tenn. –The Oak Ridge Office of Environmental Management (OREM) is beginning 2014 with a new, user-friendly website, http://energy.gov/orem.
Oak Ridge’s EM program transitioned from a limited web-presence to a full-scale, redesigned site on DOE’s Energy.gov platform. The improved design and increased capabilities translate into more news and resources for stakeholders, residents and media. The goal is for visitors to have a modern Internet experience with easily searchable and relevant content.
“We are realizing a long-term goal for our office,” said Mark Whitney, manager of OREM. “This new site provides an accurate, up-to-date picture of what we have accomplished, what challenges we face going forward and how we plan to achieve our goal of a fully remediated Oak Ridge Reservation.”
The recently launched website offers background on all areas of OREM’s services and portfolio, as well as information about the three cleanup sites, news stories, project updates, fact sheets and publications and contractor information.
Oak Ridge’s Public Affairs Division led the website reform project, and worked closely with EM and information technology contacts at DOE headquarters. Transitioning numerous office and field site websites to a single platform is expected to help DOE avoid $10 million in costs annually, while improving and integrating the Department’s communications infrastructure.
