DEP Complement Down 643 Positions From 2002-03

Staff complement for the Department of Environmental Protection is now 2,557, according to a report today from Capitalwire, down from the 3,200 positions in 2002-03 or just over 20 percent of its staff-- 643 positions. The bright spot continues to be DEP's Bureau of Oil and Gas Management and the Marcellus Shale permit/inspection program which was exempted from the general 2 year freeze on hiring. The Bureau was allowed to add 68 staff in February, although all the new positions have not yet been filled.
DEP now has a vacancy rate of between 9 and 10 percent of its staff positions as a result of the freeze and retirements which could not be refilled. The historic vacancy rate has been between 1 and 1 percent.
