Economics & Cost Analysis Support

The purpose of the ECAS site is to make available in one place the documents developed by the Air Economics Group (AEG). Tools include the databases and models that have been developed by AEG for cost, benefit, and economic impact analyses. Documents include analytical guidance and reports on conducting analysis of costs, benefits, and economic impacts of air quality management strategies, programs, and regulations. The guidance documents and technical reports are useful for understanding analyses prepared by AEG staff and serve as a resource for others conducting similar types of analyses. Models and tools developed by AEG and its contractors are made available here to facilitate others in conducting analyses of costs, benefits, and economic impacts.

Employment Opportunities:   AEG has no current openning for new applications. Job announcements can be found on the Internet at the Office of Personnel Management website Exit EPA disclaimer (http://www.usajobs.opm.gov/). The easiest way to find the announcement is to look for openings located in Durham, North Carolina.

If you would like to be notified when we have a position for which you may be interested in applying, you may send a vitae to Darryl Weatherhead, Group Leader at: Weatherhead.Darryl@epa.gov.
