The Navy and the Guam Environmental Protection Agency have signed an intergovernmental personnel agreement that will provide the local agency with full-time assignments of Navy employees for the next five years. The agreement is designed to assist GEPA in keeping up with current and impending work associated with the increase in Department of Defense activity and military construction projects on Guam.

Omar Damian, a NAVFAC Marianas environmental engineer, will assume the first rotational period for six months. During his time with GEPA, Damian will create a web-based system to centralize and track Navy-related environmental permit applications.
