Obama plans new post for Beaudreau

Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell praised President Obama’s intent to nominate Tommy P. Beaudreau as Assistant Secretary for Policy, Management and Budget (PMB).

If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Beaudreau would oversee a broad portfolio of policy and administrative functions that support the Department and its workforce, including budget, law enforcement and security management, human resources and procurement.

The Assistant Secretary for PMB also holds responsibility as the Department’s Chief Financial Officer and Chief Human Capital Officer, and provides policy leadership on the Arctic, international affairs and initiatives on land conservation, sustainability, diversity, and youth engagement and employment.

Beaudreau currently concurrently leads the office of the Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management and is the Director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) at Interior.  

As the head of Land and Minerals Management – a position he has held since January 2013 – Beaudreau has overseen the stewardship of more than 245 million acres of federal lands and 700 million acres of subsurface mineral estate for multiple uses, including responsible conventional and renewable energy development; preservation of National Conservation Lands; a wide range of recreational activities; livestock grazing; fire planning and operations; and habitat management.
