Office of Policy Analysis

The Office of Policy Analysis helps advance the mission of the Department of the Interior through policy analysis, economic analysis, and cross-department program coordination. This means determining how policy decisions affect the American people; the Nation's  lands, waters, and resources; and our economy. We help ensure decisions made across a large and highly decentralized agency are effective—all to serve the Department, the Nation, and you. 

How can we help you find out about...

These aren't the only topics we cover in the Office of Policy Analysis, of course. Use the navigation bar to learn What We Do, What We Make, and Who We Are. Get in touch if you have any questions or ideas!

We're updating the PPA website to make it easier to use, to update information, and to update styling. We're doing this to improve our implementation of OMB Circular A-11 section 280 - we're aiming for a better customer experience. Thank you for your patience during the transition!
