The Reorganization of the Former Minerals Management Service

On June 21, 2010 Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar swore-in former Justice Department Inspector General Michael R. Bromwich as Director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement to lead reforms that will strengthen oversight and regulation of offshore oil and gas development. The reorganization and internal reforms that BOEMRE has implemented since the Deepwater Horizon tragedy were designed to recognize the diverse and sometimes conflicting responsibilities of the former MMS by thoughtfully separating these missions into three new agencies and providing each of the new agencies with clear definitions of their respective missions and ? for the first time ? needed new resources to adequately fulfill those missions. Bromwich will also discuss the large number of important steps that have been taken to strengthen key functions including environmental enforcement, permitting, inspections and the way the agency deals with conflicts of interest.
