Job Description:/h3:

The Manager will have managerial responsibilities for a portion of the IDEA Account portfolio as specified by the IDEA Senior Director or Senior Vice President, with particular emphasis on servicing IDEA accounts located on the west coast (primarily California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and/or Alaska).

IDEA Accounts are created when NFWF receives funds from environmental law enforcement actions, regulatory compliance actions, or permit proceedings. An example of a typical enforcement IDEA account would be one arising from a federal prosecution of a shipping company for violating the Oil Pollution Act or Clean Water Act. As part of the settlement of such a case, the prosecutors may require the company to pay funds (often called community service funds) to NFWF to be used for conservation projects that benefit the resources affected by the violation (e.g., fish, wildlife, habitat, etc.). An example of a typical permitting IDEA account would be the issuance of a State or Federal permit or other authorization for a development project that affects a wetland under the Clean Water Act or a listed species under the State or Federal Endangered Species Acts. Under the
permit/authorization, the permittee may be required to pay funds to NFWF for specified mitigation purposes to compensate for the impact of the project on the wetland or listed species. The IDEA Department deposits these funds into dedicated accounts and works in a variety of ways to ensure the funds are obligated and disbursed to appropriate projects.

Currently, NFWF manages over 200 active IDEA Accounts in every region of the U.S. A significant number of these accounts are located in the State of California. The Manager will help coordinate the day:to:day programmatic and fiscal management of accounts within the IDEA portfolio as determined by the IDEA Senior Director (resident in San Francisco) or Senior Vice President (resident in Washington, DC). The Manager will work closely with the entire IDEA team as well as with the Departments of Finance, Science and Evaluation, Government Relations, and Development, as appropriate, to perform all required functions.
