The BTOP Compliance/Environmental Team marked Earth Day yesterday by accepting the 2010 Department of Commerce Environmental Stewardship Award from the Commerce Department’s Director for Administrative Services Mary Pleffner and Deputy Assistant Secretary for Administration John Charles. This annual award recognizes outstanding achievements of Department employees for efforts that significantly contribute to, or will promote, environmental stewardship.
BTOP was selected to win this award for its development of a model program to meet National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA ) requirements under severe time and logistical restraints. Though the Recovery Act required NTIA to get BTOP up and running under a compressed timeline, from day one we’ve been dedicated to ensuring that our grants meet all federal compliance standards.
Congratulations to the Compliance team for their commitment to environmental stewardship and earning this award!
