Environmental Policy Analyst
ECS Federal, LLC • Silver Spring, MD
Posted 5 days ago
ECS is seeking an Environmental Policy Analyst to work in our Silver Spring, MD office.
The Regulatory Services Branch coordinates the clearance of fisheries regulatory actions through NOAA Fisheries (NMFS) and the Department of Commerce (DOC) as a part of the Regulatory Streamlining Program (RSP). The Regulatory Services Branch is responsible for reviewing and clearing regulatory actions, drafting and updating official guidance, and coordinating with NOAA, DOC, Regional Offices, and Leadership in implementing regulations. This branch edits technical documents for grammar, syntactical organization, logic, and style for publication in the Federal Register.
This branch currently consists of two full-time employees. Due to the influx of regulatory packages submitted by the regional offices, NMFS has to maintain continuity and consistency with regulatory packages. Therefore, NMFS will need an Environmental Policy/Regulatory Analyst to review packages, inform leadership of potential delays in packages, liaison with the regional and Federal Register staff on the status of regulatory documents.
Failure to have knowledgeable staff will result in significant delays in clearing packages especially the packages with time sensitive deadlines. The result of not clearing packages and submitting final packages to the proper signers would cause delay in publishing regulations. For instance, a fishery not closing in time would mean our fisheries could be depleted. This would result in an economic loss to communities and our agency may end up defending our actions in court.
The Environmental Policy/Regulatory Analyst shall: 1) review regulatory packages, 2) maintain spreadsheets and data bases, 3) produce reports, 4) respond to inquiries as expertise permits, 5) edit Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation rules, 6) Evaluate current processes and recommend improvements, and 7) participate in divisional teams to support the agency and office strategic goals (Some occasional travel will be necessary to support the agency and office strategic goals for this requirement).
Work that has provided the applicant with general knowledge of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act and some familiarity with the statutory requirements associated with reviewing regulatory packages is qualifying specialized experience. Additionally, work that demonstrates experience with databases, spreadsheets or other software used for tracking the status of documents. Reporting time-sensitive data, ensuring the accuracy of the data, and the ability to produce reports based upon that data is qualifying specialized work experience. Work on teams and experience preparing complex written products and/or oral presentations for managers or senior employees is qualifying work experience.
- Ongoing Deliverables /Activities
- Clear regulatory packages through required reviewers.
- Update the Unified Agenda.
- Track and submit regulatory packages to the Department of Commerce through the Regulatory Tracking System.
- Edit rules for publication in the Federal Register.
- Serve on divisional teams to support the Agency and Office Strategic goals.
- Train regional staff on clearance procedures
- Exceptional communication, collaboration and organizational skills.
- Process oriented and attentive to detail.
- Ability to build and maintain effective relationships with staff. Excellent reading comprehension and writing skills.
- Ability to multitask and work with short deadlines.
- Must have strong skills with MS Office applications.
- Ability to address ambiguities.
- Some knowledge of environmental legislation, fisheries, and Federal Register requirements preferred.
