Lessons Learned Quarterly Report, March 2006

Welcome to the 46th quarterly report on lessons learned in the NEPA process. DOE’s senior managers play a vital role in NEPA implementation as evidenced by the settlement of Hanford NEPA litigation. Their participation in every EIS is important to ensure the scope and schedule support DOE’s needs, as shown by an analysis of EIS metrics in this issue. As always, we welcome your suggestions for continuous improvement.
