Leadership

RBDMS development has historically been and continues to be directed by RBDMS states. Ongoing RBDMS development, legacy data conversion and migration, and system setup efforts in multiple states are overseen by GWPC, a Steering Committee, and the RBDMS Technical Committee.

RBDMS Steering Committee

The RBDMS Steering Committee develops policy, budget and priorities.  It is made up of mostly directors and deputy directors of state oil and gas programs.  

Current members of the Steering Committee are:

  • Stan Belieu (Nebraska)
  • Mark Bohrer (North Dakota)
  • Tom Kropatsch (Wyoming)
  • Amanda Trotter (New York)
  • Adam Wygant (Michigan) 

RBDMS Technical Committee

The RBDMS Technical Committee Welcomes representatives from all RBDMS states. Currently consists of representatives from Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Michigan, Nebraska, New York, Oklahoma, and Utah. Members are typically programmatic and IT managers from state oil and gas programs.

Partners & Funders

Since the program's inception in 1992, the development of RBDMS has been underwritten through grants from the U.S. Department of Energy. Matching funds have been provided by state agencies in the form of in-kind services and direct funding. GWPC has also partnered with organizations on specific projects, jointly guiding the design and implementation process.
