Special Programs Justice for Sterilization Victims Eugenics Compensation The NC Office of Justice for Sterilization Victims provides justice and compensate victims who were forcibly sterilized by the State of North Carolina. The office functions as a clearinghouse to assist victims of the former NC Eugenics Board program and thereby serves as the primary point of contact for victims, potential victims and the general public who are seeking guidance about North Carolina’s former sterilization laws and program. During 2011 and 2012, office staff also supported a separate Gubernatorial Task Force established under Executive Order 83. Oregon Inlet Task Force The Oregon Inlet Land Acquisition Task Force was created by statute for the purpose of determining, reviewing, and considering the State's options for acquiring the federal government's right, title, and interest in Oregon Inlet and the adjacent real property, including submerged lands. This Task Force studied how the State may preserve Oregon Inlet and how to develop long-term management solutions for preserving and enhancing the navigability of Oregon Inlet, which is both a critical transportation corridor and a critical source of commerce for the State's Outer Banks. DOA's Climate Change & Clean Energy: Plans & Progress In October 2018, Governor Roy Cooper released Executive Order No. 80 addressing North Carolina's commitment to climate change and transition to a clean energy economy. EO No. 80, outlines specific goals for completion by 2025. These goals will be achieved through collaborative efforts among cabinet agencies on the Climate Change Interagency Council. The NC Department of Administration (DOA) is part of this Council. Environmental Review Clearinghouse The State Environmental Review Clearinghouse allows for the evaluation of potential negative environmental impacts of proposed projects according to the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA). Environmental documents prepared for SEPA compliance allow state government agencies to make informed decisions about whether, and under what the conditions, a project with potential adverse impacts should proceed. This is a public process that allows all views to be heard regarding the sufficiency of the impact analysis. Administrative Rules Review Pursuant to NCGS 150B-19.1 the Department of Administration (DOA) will post proposed rules to Department Rules for public review and comment.

The DOA will consider fully all written and oral comments received.
