NEPA Assignment Training Powerpoints and Quizzes

The objective of these training materials is to provide National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Assignment information to all professionals involved in the NEPA process. Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) staff helped identify six groups to receive the training: consultants, engineers, environmental specialists, local government staff, elected officials, and management. Six PowerPoints were developed specifically for these groups. The PowerPoints contain sections that outline an introductory review of NEPA and an explanation of how NEPA Assignment has changed the general responsibilities held by these six groups. An overview of what to expect and develop for different project classifications lays the foundation for project delivery of Categorical Exclusions (CEs), Environmental Assessments (EAs), and Environmental Impact Statement (EISs). Major aspects of implementing the NEPA process across all project classifications are outlined, such as project initiation and quality assurance and control. Finally, real-world examples are used to illustrate how important each person’s role is to the larger NEPA process under assignment, and to provide examples of where and how mistakes can take place. Also provided here are five quizzes (for all but the elected official group), which similarly use examples from practice to assess the user’s understanding of the material.
