New EPA organisational structure
On 1 July the EPA introduced a new organisational structure.
The restructure is a central component of a broader Change Program to transform the EPA into a sharper and more effective, modern regulator. This will enable us to better meet the needs and expectations of the community, Government and the environment, in a way that is robust, durable and sustainable.
Supporting the Chief Executive, Dr Campbell Gemmell, the new structure consists of two directorates: Strategy and Business – headed by Deputy Chief Executive Tony Circelli; and Operations – headed by Executive Director Operations Andrew Wood.
As Deputy Chief Executive, Tony is responsible for Finance; Policy and Better Regulation; People, Strategy and Engagement; Knowledge, Information and Strategy; and the Office of the Executive.
The Operations Directorate sees Andrew responsible for Compliance, Regional Delivery, Operations Planning, Investigations and Tactical Response; Keith Baldry as Operations Director Mining, Radiation and Regulatory Support; and Peter Dolan as Operations Director, Science, Assessment and Planning.
The new structure will strengthen the organisation and more effectively support the delivery of our strategic outcomes through the alignment of functions. Together with the reform initiatives of the Change Program, such as improved project management, increased regional presence, organisational development, stakeholder engagement and regulatory practice, the EPA will be well placed to strengthen collaboration, partnerships and integration across the diverse range of our stakeholders.
