Charles L. Grizzle, Assistant Administrator for the Office
of Administration and Resources Management at the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency, has resigned his position
effective August 16. Grizzle is leaving EPA to accept a position
as Senior Vice President with The Jefferson Group in Washington,
Reacting to the announcement, EPA Administrator William K.
Reilly said, "In all the years that Charlie Grizzle headed the
budget office, appropriations for EPA continually increased.
Charlie expertly managed a multi-billion dollar budget for one of
the most complex sets of programs in the world. He understood
what the dollar figures attached to those programs really meant
in terms of environmental protection. He also has been
instrumental in efforts to secure a new, much needed building for
EPA employees, and the Agency looks forward to its new home in
the Federal Triangle. We shall all miss him, and we deeply
appreciate what he has done for EPA."
While at EPA, Grizzle was responsible for the programs of
the Agency and management of four key offices: Comptroller,
including all the financial and budget policy and operations;
Human Resources Management, encompassing executive recruitment
and development; Information Resources Management, which includes
agency-wide ADP processing and procurement, data management and
computer network design; and Administration, covering the areas
of procurement, cooperative agreements, grants to states,
universities and other institutions, facilities management, and
health and safety policies for the entire Agency.
Grizzle, 42, was appointed Assistant Administrator for the
Office of Administration and Resources Management in 1988 by
former President Ronald Reagan and reappointed by President
George Bush. Prior to his position at EPA Grizzle served as
Deputy Assistant Secretary at the U.S. Department of Agriculture
from 1983 to 1988.

LIBRARY, REGION V
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the American
Association of Retired Persons (AARP) will sign a joint
Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Friday, June 28. There will
be a photo opportunity at the signing ceremony.
EPA Administrator William K. Reilly and AARP Executive
Director Horace B. Deets will sign the MOU expanding the
involvement of senior citizens in community environmental
activities.
With older Americans serving as the single largest group of
volunteers in the United States today, EPA and AARP hope to
provide opportunities for senior citizens to incorporate their
experience and expertise into local environmental initiatives.
Volunteer efforts such as serving as community watchdogs,
organizing local cleanup efforts, and working with local
governments to encourage recycling initiatives, are just a few
ways in which volunteer actions can make a difference in the
environment.
Both EPA and AARP agree to provide assistance where needed
to promote greater involvement of our nation's senior population
in the preservation and enhancement of our environment. Citizen
involvement and commitment to an environmental ethic are
essential to ensuring a clean environment for future generations.
The ceremony will take place at EPA at 3:30 p.m. in room
1103 of the West Tower.
