Welcome to the Office of Project Management & Permitting

Large Project Coordination

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Office of Project Management and Permitting (OPMP) coordinates the review of larger scale projects in the State. Because of the complexity and potential impact of these projects on multiple divisions or agencies, these projects typically benefit from a single primary point of contact. A project coordinator is assigned to each project in order to facilitate interagency coordination and a cooperative working relationship with the project proponent.

The project coordinator is responsible for ensuring that the project moves forward in a coordinated manner with minimum duplication. The office deals with a diverse mix of projects including transportation, oil and gas, mining and alternative energy. Every project is different and involves a different mix of agencies, permitting requirements, statutory responsibilities, and resource management responsibilities. The project coordinator facilitates these connections for the project and helps to steer the project through the state approval process.

Federal Grants and Land Use Planning

In addition to large project coordination OPMP also coordinates the State's input on a variety of federal land use plans, including ANILCA coordination for planning efforts in conservation system units (CSUs) in Alaska. OPMP also coordinates the State's participation in a variety of federal grant programs.
