The DOE Information Center´s current collection has more than 40,000 documents consisting of technical reports and historical materials that relate to DOE operations. These include the Administrative Record, Freedom of Information Act requested records, National Environmental Policy Act, and other publicly accessible documents.
The DOE Information Center provides public access to the Oak Ridge Reservation's Administrative Record under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act.
The Administrative Record is the official body of documents that are considered when selecting a remedy for a Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act response action. The Administrative Record File is a body of documents collected throughout the investigative and decision-making process for a response action to the cleanup process. Once the response action is selected, the documentation becomes the Administrative Record.
Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act regulations limit when documentation can be added to the Administrative Record after the final decision. These after action documents are filed under the Post Decision File, which is a part of the record. The Post Decision File is composed of documents generated after the selection of a response action. These documents are compiled during the actual cleanup phase of a response action.
The Oak Ridge Environmental Information System (OREIS) is designed to meet environmental data management, analysis, storage, and dissemination needs to comply with federal and state regulatory agreements for the DOE's facilities operated by various contractors. This effort developed a consolidated database, an environmental information system, and data management procedures to ensure the integrity and legal defensibility of environmental and geographic data throughout the facilities. OREIS can be accessed at https://oreis.ettp.energy.gov with a username and password. For more information on accessibility, please e-mail email@example.com or call (865)574-3527.
The Freedom of Information Act allows the public to request and receive government records. Information for submitting a request can be accessed by clicking here. Requests must be submitted in writing to a Freedom of Information Act Officer.
The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 requires federal agencies to act in cooperation with state and local governments and other concerned public and private organizations to integrate environmental values into decision making. The National Environmental Policy Act website contains documents that are currently available to the public including Environmental Impact Statements, Environmental Assessments, Mitigation Action Plans, Notices of Availability, Notices of Intent, Records of Decision, Findings of No Significant Impact; a schedule and status for NEPA documents, laws, regulations, orders, and guidance documents.
