About PPA

Placeholder photo for Office of Policy Analysis director

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 provide cross-cutting analysis and coordination to support Departmental leadership and decision-making across a highly decentralized agency. We evaluate Interior programs, address policy issues, and conduct relevant economic analyses on behalf of Departmental leadership. PPA also coordinates interagency and multi-bureau programs, including the Department's ecosystem restoration program, invasive species, and statistical policies. We help ensure decisions made across a large and highly decentralized agency are effective—all to serve the Department, the Nation, and you.
