Superintendent George Price announced that Janet Barricman has been selected as the permanent Administrative Officer for the Cape Cod National Seashore. Ms. Barricman will be replacing Ted Nicholson who moved to a position with the Department of Agriculture in September. She has been acting division chief since Mr. Nicholson's departure.

In making the announcement, Price said, "Janet has demonstrated a tremendous capacity to work with and support park management with administrative challenges.  She has proven herself as the long-term manager of the Fee Recreation Program for the national seashore.  Janet has a great attitude and can help us navigate the human resources, budget and accountability responsibilities National Park Service (NPS) managers face to operate national parks."  

Barricman said she "… is very excited to join the management and administrative teams.  I look forward to the challenges ahead as the NPS moves into new financial and business management systems."

Janet is a native of Cape Cod, raised in Orleans.  She is a 1980 graduate of Nauset Regional High School and earned a BA degree in criminal justice from Iona College in 1985.

Janet has worked for the NPS for 22 years in a number of positions including as Fee Manager since 2001.  The national seashore collects over one million dollars each year for the six life-guarded beaches.  Janet received high marks for her supervision and management of the fee program and has received praise by auditors who have reviewed her management systems.  The Administrative Officer (AO) assists the Superintendent with the overall seashore budget management of a $7.5 million dollar base budget as well as a variety of other special project funds.  The AO also supports all the park's supervisors with hiring, financial management, property management, housing, and technology.

Established in 1961, the NPS mission at Cape Cod National Seashore is to preserve the nationally significant and special natural and cultural features, distinctive patterns of human activity and ambience that characterize the Outer Cape, along with the associated scenic, cultural, historic, scientific, and recreational values, and to provide opportunities for current and future generations to experience, enjoy, and understand these features and values,
