REQUEST FOR EXAMPLES ON ENHANCING COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION AND WORKFORCE INVOLVEMENT WITH MILITARY FACILITY CLEANUP AND UXO The National Environmental Education and Training Center (NEETC) is soliciting short (one-three paragraph) descriptions of successes and problems associated with community participation and/or workforce involvement at military installations (active, FUDs, BRAC, and UXO). Submittals are to be used in a manual directed toward DoD Installations (Commanders and Installation Restoration Program personnel). The manual seeks to enhance installation personnel's understanding and utilization -- and to identify new areas -- of community participation and workforce involvement to accomplish long-term restoration goals. Response to this solicitations is welcome from either the public, private sector and workers, or installation personnel, as well as federal and state regulators. While we ask that submittals focus on one issue, more than one submittal is welcome. Submittals are particularly desired for the following subjects: Trust & Transparency (information, communication and particpation) Standards & relative risk Future land use Schedule and how to balance players needs Innovative Technology or process (i.e. natural attenuation, phytoremediation) Re-opening Record of Decision Budgeting process Privatization Public comment Environmental Justice Tools (RABs, TRCs, DSMOA, partnering, TAPP grants, developing/updating CRP. etc.) Specific workforce issues include, current contracting, privatization, information, technology, building skills/marketability, training, health and safety and emergency response, equity and standards, hazardous material technology, BRAC & environmental justice, UXO and ranges. For the resource section we are also interested in maximum two sentence descriptions of any national or regional groups, trade or professional associations, web sites, other manuals, etc. For purposes of the manual, community is broadly defined to include: citizens, environmental groups, tribes, local officials, state officials, academics and non-profits. Workforce is defined to include: contactors, labor force, training programs, technical non-profits, technology developers, regulatory community, emergency response community, IRP program personnel. Submittals should clearly identify the sectoral nature of the submitter (i.e. IRP personnel, contractor or consultant, citizen group member, technology developer, state or federal regulator, etc.). In addition, please identify the type (active, BRAC, FUDS), service branch (Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, National Guard or Reserve Unit), and nature (range, air field, depot, etc.) of the installation and, if known, idenitfy the service branch command which "owns" the installation. In examples of cross-service cooperation or participation, please identify the groups involved. Submissions should be accompanied by the name and sectoral nature (i.e., IRP personel, contractor or consultant, citizen group member, technology developer, state or federal regulator, etc.) of the writer. In addition, the writer should indicate whether they give permission for their name to be used, if the description is published. Deadline for submission is: March 12, 1999. Depending upon response, not all submittals may be published and submittals may be edited for clarity and length. Thank you very much.
