U.S. DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY PRESENTS TOP AWARDS TO TWO SAN FRANCISCO FIELD OFFICE EMPLOYEES

 OAKLAND, Calif., Nov. 18 ~PRNewswire~ -- Two U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) San Francisco Field Office employees recently were presented with top awards by Energy Secretary James D. Watkins at a ceremony in Washington D.C.
 Donald W. Pearman Jr., DOE San Francisco Field Office manager, received the Secretary's Award, the highest DOE award. Susan R. Brechbill, assistant chief counsel for the General Law Division, received the Meritorious Service Award.
 Pearman was honored "in recognition of your foresight, leadership and initiative in sustaining the motivation of employees in accomplishing unique contributions to the administration of the department while serving as acting director of administration and human resource management. You are also recognized for your guidance, counsel, commitment, effort and competence responsible for a smooth transition." From April to August 1992, he served as acting director of administration and human resource management at DOE headquarters in Washington D.C. In this position, he was in charge of areas such as facilities, information resources, civil rights, personnel, administrative services and training.
 Brechbill received her award "in recognition of her major contributions to the operation and mission of the San Francisco Field Office in the area of legal services, resulting in programs and agreements which have established standards of excellence for the department."
 Pearman began his federal career in 1968 as a management intern with the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). He held administrative positions in Washington D.C.; Albuquerque, N.M.; Kansas City, Mo.; St. Petersburg, Fla. and was deputy director of the Southwestern District Office in Los Angeles before arriving at the San Francisco office in 1976. Subsequently, he was appointed assistant manager for administration in 1979, deputy manager in 1983 and acting manager in 1989. He was appointed manager of the San Francisco Field Office in January 1990. He has both bachelor's and master's degrees in business administration.
 Brechbill started in the AEC's San Francisco Operations Office as a legal trainee in 1966 while attending law school. She served as an attorney in the office from 1968 to 1973 when she transferred to the AEC Nevada Operations Office and worked as industrial relations officer and branch chief in the Procurement Division. From 1976 to 1978 she worked as a DOE attorney, primarily in procurement. In 1978 she was selected as director of the SF Contracts Management Division. In 1984 she returned to legal work as a senior attorney and in 1989 became assistant chief counsel for the DOE San Francisco Field Office. From April-August 1992, she served as acting assistant manager for Environmental Management and Support in the San Francisco Field Office.
 During her career, she successfully represented the department in contract dispute cases before the Board of Contract Appeals. She provided key legal support in the 1987 negotiations for renewal of the contract with the University of California for operation of the Lawrence Berkeley, Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos Laboratories. In 1989 she was lead negotiator for the department on the first DOE Federal Facility Agreement, approved under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) Section 120 covering environmental restoration at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The agreement established DOE policy in key environmental areas and served as a department-wide model for later agreements. Most recently, she led the Field Office effort to produce the first new site-wide Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in DOE, a document covering LLNL and Sandia National Laboratory, California. The EIS has become the model for DOE's new site-wide EISs.
