McCalman will serve as a liaison on intergovernmental initiatives associated with hydropower delivery, as well as being responsible for Reclamation’s overall compliance with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s Mandatory Bulk Electric System Reliability Standards.

He will also coordinate the implementation of corporate partnership efforts involving Reclamation’s power functions and activities in collaboration with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Bonneville Power Administration, Western Area Power Administration and Tennessee Valley Authority.
