WASHINGTON DC --The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) is changing its organizational structure, effective Oct. 1, 2010. It will align the organizational structure with the agency's functional areas: statistics, analysis, communication, and management.
Four new assistant Administrators (AA) will direct supporting offices within their functional areas:
- AA for Energy Statistics is supported by six offices. The AA conducts survey, statistical methods, and integration activities related to energy consumption and efficiency; electricity; nuclear and renewable energy; oil, gas and coal supply; and petroleum and biofuels. The AA for Energy Statistics also manages the EIA data collection program and quality control.
- AA for Energy Analysis is supported by five offices. The AA for Energy Analysis analyzes energy supply, demand, and prices; reports on current and future energy use; analyzes energy policies; and develops techniques to do energy information analyses.
-AA for Communications is supported by two offices. This AA oversees an energy information program. The AA for Communications also oversees the use of web-based technology.
- AA for Resource and Technology Management is supported by three offices. The AA directs a centralized and cross-cutting corporate business activities including EIA's independent information technology infrastructure and data center operation, budget and financial management, procurement oversight and processing, human capital management, and logistical support. The AA for Resource and Technology Management also provides expert advice to the Administrator on strategic planning and program evaluation, agency business and technology policy, physical and technology security, and financial analysis and evaluation in support of EIA strategic goals and objectives.
