Information Bulletin No. 2009-081
 
To:
All Field Officials
Attention: Planning and Environmental Coordinators
 
 
From:
Assistant Director, Renewable Resources and Planning
 
 
Subject:
Rotations for Presidential Management Fellows (PMF)
DD:  06/30/2009
 
Action Requested: The purpose of this Information Bulletin is to request State and Field Offices to submit projects for a 120-day rotational assignment pertaining to Planning or NEPA beginning in August 2009.  Interested Offices should submit a proposal describing the project and duties the PMF would perform and the project timeframe. Assignments should give the PMF substantial responsibilities, allow the PMF to work on priority projects, and should promote a learning opportunity.  Please include a brief description of the Office and local community, as well. 
 
Background: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Department of the Interior currently have several PMFs employed nationwide.  The PMF program is a highly competitive, government-wide professional development program designed to prepare individuals for management careers within the Federal government.  Individuals hired through the PMF program are graduates of a variety of master's and doctoral-level programs.  Presidential Management Fellows receive an initial two-year full-time excepted service appointment, after which they are eligible for conversion to a permanent position as a Federal government employee. 
 
During their fellowship, each PMF takes on one or more rotational assignments. The Division of Decision Support Planning and NEPA has a Fellow who is currently seeking a rotational opportunity and career experience at the State or Field Office level for a 4-month period. Additional information can be found at www.pmf.gov.
 
Budget Impacts: Travel and salary for the PMF’s rotational assignment is funded by the Division of Decision Support Planning and NEPA.
 
Coordination: A resume, including dates of availability, is available upon request.  If your Office can offer this opportunity and would benefit from having a PMF, please submit proposals electronically to Samuel Gaugush, WO-210 at Samuel_Gaugush@blm.gov.
 
Timeframe: Proposals should be submitted by Tuesday, June 30, 2009.
 
Contact: If you have questions regarding the PMF program or rotational assignments, please contact Sandra Meyers, Acting Division Chief, Division of Decision Support, Planning, and NEPA, at 202-557-3373.
