Pre-referral Negotiation Procedures


This document sets forth procedures governing pre-referral settlement negotiations for cases arising under CERCLA for which a settlement by judicial consent decree will be sought. The pre-referral process is patterned largely after that established for other EOA-administered statutes by a March 9, 1988 letter from Thomas Adams to Roger Marzulla. The procedures have been modified in this document. The objective of these procedures is to quicken the pace of achieving settlements and improve the quality of settlements obtained by establishing a regular settlement decision making process for the US.
