Government agencies are the several different administrative units of the government that each have unique, specific responsibilities. Agencies can be on a local, regional or national level. The government agency is separate from the government department or ministry. However, they often work closely with one another and report to several different departments. Many government agencies act independently, specifically those that oversee or regulate other sectors. A common concern regarding government agencies is the “captured agency.” This is when an interest group “captures” an agency with political pressure.
Often, people confuse government-sponsored enterprises with government corporations. Enterprises are companies that are owned by shareholders and are chartered by the government to oversee policies. On the other hand, a corporation is directly created by the government. For example, in the U.S., the best known government corporation is the United States Postal Service. A government enterprise is considered a government agency but a government corporation is not. Sometimes, a corporation is called a quasi-agency. A regulatory agency is one of the most common types of government agencies. Regulatory agencies set the standards for activity in private sectors and make sure that the standards are enforced. Often, government agencies are under the national government’s executive branch. However, a regulatory agency is not. Instead, this type of agency is established by a legislature.
Any type of government is going to have several agencies that have various objectives and responsibilities. Many government agencies are tasked with carrying out policies of the current government. Other agencies will deliver public goods and services through contracting, loans and government-sponsored enterprises. Overall, government agencies offer several jobs to job-seekers, especially on a local level. The larger the town or city, the more job opportunities there will be because the locale will have several government branches.
CCI provides on-going support for a major transmission plant in the Midwest on a scheduled and on-call basis. This work is performed in conjunction and coordination with the plant’s operations and maintenance team in order to insure continued, high quality operation of key components. CCI responds to in-plant emergencies to restore plant operations as quickly as possible. CCI’s participation in the management of this facility assists in providing quality products for the plant’s customers.
CCI has provided fluid removals, equipment cleaning, and residuals management services for equipment and related piping systems in advance of the removal (strip-out) of the equipment at a former automotive plant in Ohio. Also, depending on project scope, CCI provides cleaning of pits and trenches as necessary in advance of, or during, equipment removal. In execution of this work, CCI operates in close coordination with the Owner’s site, engineering, and environmental representatives. Effective strip-out preparation provided by CCI helps reduce equipment demolition timing and helps maintain project cost and schedule.
To support Owner developed demolition specifications, and regulatory requirements, CCI addressed the universal wastes, residual chemicals, and surface cleaning of a former auto plant in Michigan. The objective of this pre-demolition cleaning is to remove hazardous materials so that the demolition can occur without impacting other media. This pre-demolition cleaning also maximizes recovery and recycling efforts by reducing surface contamination and avoiding the disposal of valuable construction materials.
In support of rehabilitation of an abandoned auto plant in Michigan, CCI provided post-demolition cleaning of concrete surfaces; including slabs, pits, and trenches. This effort not only provided a safer work environment, it also facilitated backfilling and other rehabilitation activities.
