ADR Program Washington Office
The ADR Program office located in Washington, DC provides policy, guidance, strategic direction, and oversight to the Bureau’s collaborative stakeholder engagement and ADR efforts, and provides an additional forum for public involvement through the National Ombudsman role.
The Washington program office consists of the Bureau Dispute Resolution Manager, a Dispute Resolution Specialist, a Presidential Management Fellow, and a Legal Intern. We also collaborate with outside partners and consultants as needs arise. The program is supported in the field by the ADR Advisory Council.
The Program’s Washington Office is also responsible for Chairing and facilitating meetings of the ADR Advisory Council, and for representing the Bureau on the Department of the Interior Dispute Resolution Council
(IDRC). The office reports to and advises BLM Washington Office management on collaborative stakeholder engagement and ADR in the Field.
