Shorett Builds Environmental Management Systems Strategy for Department of Interior

April 2007
Congratulations to ETD's Jean Shorett on successfully laying the foundation for the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) to implement an Environmental Management System (EMS). DOI's EMS was designed as a tool for managing environmental risks and meeting the Department's strategic goals. During her 5-month assignment, Jean was responsible for text committing DOI to fully implement the EMS being added to the Department's Strategic Plan. She developed an overall EMS strategy, budget and a well-received implementation plan. Building the plan, she sought participation from DOI bureaus and offices. She developed broad consensus across the agency's leaders, resulting in adoption of the strategy and plan. Kathleen Bartholomew, Team Leader for DOI's Environmental Management Integration, praised Jean's expertise, dedication and professionalism. Thank you, Jean, for taking on this challenging assignment!
