Providing information to the media and our external stakeholders.

Press Releases | Notes to Stakeholders | Media Advisories

The Office of Communications (OCC) provides information to the public, the media and to our external stakeholders with environmental organizations, industry, trade associations and academia. We have a strong group of public affairs professionals working to ensure transparency of all aspects of BOEM's mission.

Along with addressing the needs of media with an interest in energy and Outer Continental Shelf issues, BOEM OCC has an active stakeholder relations program. Our OCC professionals in the BOEM regional offices serve as points of contact with media as well as external stakeholders. Blossom Robinson is our headquarters lead for stakeholder inquiries.

We make every attempt to respond to external requests promptly. If you leave a message for us or write a note, please make note of your deadline in your request. Below, you will find all of our points of contact in OPA.
