IESC offers a cost effective solution to providing a centralized and multifunctional processing capacity necessary to ensure Interior’s successful fulfillment of its Indian energy and mineral development responsibilities in the face of fluctuating workloads.
It also promulgates across Interior’s Indian energy organizations a common business process that works to standardize and streamline all types of Indian energy, renewable energy, and mineral development functions for the best benefit of Interior and the Indian beneficiary. Efficiencies are gained by applying significant streamlining improvements offered in the recently developed Onshore Federal and Indian Energy and Mineral Lease Management Standard Operating Procedures (SOP), a business process that greatly simplifies processing activities while assuring that Interior responsibilities in Titles 25, 30, and 43 of the Code of Federal Regulations are fulfilled.
The Service Center Director reports directly to the Deputy Bureau Director – Trust Services of BIA. Each agency has an onsite branch chief that oversees the duties of the employees from their agency. The four branches of the IESC are: Real Estate Services (BIA), Engineering Services (BLM), Beneficiary Services (BTFA), and Mineral Services (ONRR).
