The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Independent Enterprise Assessments’ (IEA) Outreach Program provides an open and effective means of communicating and creating collaborative relationships within and outside the organization to include DOE and senior management, other federal agencies, labor unions, stakeholders, field offices, Departmental contractors, and other public and private sector entities.
The IEA outreach approach is currently reflected in three program areas:
Focus Groups – provides established forums for focused communication and collaboration between IEA and constituent organizations with the mutual goals and objectives of improving the health, safety, environmental, and security performance at DOE sites.
Visiting Speakers Program - provides an outreach collaborative forum to discuss current issues and challenges of national interest drawing upon the subject matter expertise of academic, business, industry, public and private organizations with missions aligned with the DOE mission and goals. The Visiting Speakers Program is intended to focus agency attention at the management level to the emerging challenges and issues threatening our national security and economic prosperity.
Organizational Sustainability - creates a proactive means for communicating health, safety, environmental, and security performance activities, to create an organizational sustainability model for use within EA (and potentially across DOE) to provide a full integrated view of operations and develop a more resilient organization, and create a collaborative forum to discuss and take action on the current issues and challenges to the national interest as these items align with the DOE mission.
