Environmental Policy Statement 1994
Effective Development and Promotion of Environmental Expertise
If the FHWA is to fulfill this policy statement and the DOT's theme of advancing transportation technology and expertise, our agency must have well-trained and professional personnel skilled in a broad set of disciplines. Emphasis must be placed on the environmental, social, and cultural sciences, and experts from the environmental staff must be involved in agency decisionmaking.

It is FHWA policy to:
- Ensure environmental compliance and excellence at management levels.
- Develop, enhance, and maintain environmental staff expertise, and encourage State transportation agencies and MPOs to do the same.
- Utilize the Environmental Training Program as a development source of environmental specialists. Actively recruit from colleges and universities, with a special emphasis on Historically Black Colleges and Universities and other minority institutions, to bring the most promising candidates into the program.
