Lynn L. Bergeson Quoted in Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report Article “Staff Shift in EPA’s Chemicals Office Prior to Reorganization (1)”

The ACTA Group

On April 6, 2018, Lynn L. Bergeson, President, The Acta Group (Acta®), was quoted by Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report regarding recently announced senior staff job changes at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The staff moves are taking place before the office’s anticipated reorganization, Lynn Bergeson, managing partner of the Bergeson & Campbell, P.C., told Bloomberg Environment. 

The agency has not released details of the reorganization nor a timeline, but it is expected later this year, she said. Typically, reorganizations have to be negotiated with EPA’s unions and follow federal personnel rules—which can take some time.

“That these moves occurred in advance of the reorganization suggests opportunities arose that could not wait,” Bergeson said by email.

Doa is headed to the agency’s Office of Research and Development. She joins ORD’s Office of Science Policy, which integrates scientific knowledge into regulatory and non-regulatory actions taken throughout the agency.

“Dr. Doa’s technical expertise and visionary outlook will be put to good use,” Bergeson said.

Other changes make good use of career staffs’ expertise, she said. The changes put individuals with many years of experience in roles where they can provide valuable insight if and when the reorganization takes place, she said.

“In short—all good, smart moves,” Bergeson said.
