On FHWA's Re:NEPA, there's a survey based on a long discussion entitled NEPA: 50% faster? The purpose of the survey to identify 2 or 3 big issues that consistently result in frustration and/or delay in the NEPA process. With this information, the Re:NEPA community can then brainstorm ways to address these big issues.
Over 50 people have already responded to the Sources of Delay and Frustration Survey. So far, the 2 issues that are “in the lead” are:
* Changes in project scope or unclear project scope
* Increased documentation levels (i.e. EAs now EIS size)
Do you agree or disagree that these two issues are major sources of delay and frustration in the NEPA process? Please share your opinion via survey if you haven't done so already: http://cubit.wufoo.com/forms/sources-of-frustration-delay-in-the-nepa-process/
If you've already completed the survey, please email the link above to people whose input should be included. I'll be sure and post more detailed survey results in the near future.
