Flood Insurance Affordability

...1960s because insurers were leaving the flood insurance market due to outrageous risks. Its purpose is to subsidize the policies of property owners in flood risk areas and, for some, is the only way to get affordable flood coverage. Today, about 20% of the 5.5 million flood policies in effect are subsidized by the NFIP. The other 80% pays premiums based on actual risk, which is the point of insurance to begin with.2 What began as a successful solution to unaffordable rates has become an economic disaster, leaving taxpayers to pick up the tab. The program made it affordable for anyone to live in areas that are deservedly uninsurable without government support. Climate change is no longer just a theory. According to the consulting firm AECOM, the rise in sea levels could increase flood hazard areas along the coast by 55% in the next century. Despite this problem, coastal populations have increased by 40% since 1970, the result is that 40% of the US population lives in a county with a coastline.3 Decades of low premiums have given few incentives for property owners to take preventative actions and will cost taxpayers billions more when another disaster occurs. Coastal development is still on the rise and people seem ignorant to the growing risk floods and the detriment that their subsidized policies have had on the economy. After the program paid $7.9 billion in claims in 2002, an average of $55,000 per payout, it was apparent that something needed to be done.2 Enter the......

Briefly explain why this agency and your proposed regulation change interest you. Will this proposed regulation affect you or the business in which you are working? The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is in charge of the National Priorities List. Currently the EPA is seeking to propose a rule 61. I currently work for a corporation, AECOM that stands for Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Operations, Management, where our job is to destroy chemical agent, such as mustard nerve agent. AECOM works diligently to follow EPA guidelines to ensure we do not fall under Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) and Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA). AECOM follows these guidelines to protect the environment and the personnel that live in the city where we are located. Part of our job is to stay up-to-date with the laws and regulations that change and come up to ensure we are not breaking the law when it comes to transporting, handling, and destroying the chemical agent. As it stands, the current regulation is only for three sites Alabama, Indiana, and Michigan, which do not apply to our site in Colorado. Later in the cycle, the EPA could issue to have this regulation include our site in Colorado is anything goes wrong during processing. 2. Describe the proposal or...

...CONCLUSIONS The main purpose of this report is to analyse the selected cost reduction strategies with the implementation of green in global maritime logistics and the MPA, it is revealed that they do indeed bring benefits as the pros far outweighs the cons. Furthermore, the capacity to utilise IT to create a supply chain integration ability is clearly connected with enhanced operational performance as well as consumer satisfaction.

Cross Culteral Perspectives

...Cross-Cultural Perspectives: AECOM Derrick Brown ETH/316 February 2, 2015 William Halstead Cross-Cultural Perspectives: AECOM AECOM is a professional technical services and management support services firm that operates in over 150 countries around the world. They employ almost 100,000 employees to provide services for global government agencies as well as privately own enterprises. According to “AECOM Fact Sheet” (2015), AECOM’s annual revenue for 2014 was $19.5 billion. These are some very impressive numbers, but because of what AECOM does it has the challenge of staying in compliance with environmental regulations from its home country as well as any country in which it may be operating. When having a vast array of specialties such as architecture, engineering, science, management and construction, the task of staying environmentally friendly takes on a job of its own. Protect the Environment and Make a Profit The real challenge for AECOM is not their position on being environmentally friendly, but standing firm in their beliefs of protecting the environment and making a profit while providing their services. Ironically, AECOM functions under a new age business model that is held together by their purpose and core values, and by doing this they believe, and have proven, they can be profitable. “Our purpose—to positively impact lives, transform communities and make the world a better place—unites professionals working collaboratively across a broad range......

...altering their behavior. They also allow their own attitudes and beliefs to guide them. They are also often very well educated and usually hold professional positions. A Whistleblower is a person who provides information that usually leads to an investigation and then results in the loss of a job for some and the loss of the reputation for the business involved. On August 8, 2014the Second Circuit abanded a defense that focuses on whether a plaintiff’s complaint definitively and specifically relates to one of the categories of fraud or securities violations listed in Section 806 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, but it nevertheless affirmed dismissal because the plaintiff former employee lacked a reasonable belief. The case was Nielson v. AECOM Tech. Corp. The plaintiff alleged that the company terminated his employment after he reported a subordinate for approving fire-safety designs without actually reviewing the designs of the fire safety plans. After the plaintiff was discharged he filed a Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower complaint on the basis of the before stated situation. The district court ruled that the plaintiff failed to engage in protected activity because his claims did not definitively and specially relate to a category in section 806. Rejecting that standard, however, the Second Circuit embraced Sylvester v. Parexel, Intl LLC. in which the administrative review board adopted a looser reasonable belief standard.
