E-Enterprise for the Environment

EEforEN

E-Enterprise for the Environment (E-Enterprise) is a transformative 21st-century strategy to modernize how government agencies deliver environmental protection. Through joint governance, States, Territories, Tribes, and EPA are collaboratively streamlining business processes and driving and sharing innovations across agencies and programs. More information is available at: https://www.epa.gov/e-enterprise.

E-Enterprise Seeks New Team Members for the Advanced Monitoring Team

The E-Enterprise for the Environment Advanced Monitoring Team (AMT) is recruiting members for the AMT Steering Committee and four AMT Project Teams. The AMT is focusing on air and water pollution monitoring technology and how best to integrate the rapid advances being seen in these areas into the regulatory landscape.

  • AMT Steering Committee: The Steering Committee will be composed of senior-level staff and will work to coordinate the efforts of the Project Teams, provide direction, ensure joint governance and accountability, and address obstacles that arise.
  • Project Team 1 – Options and Feasibility Analysis for Independent Third-Party Verification Program: This Project Team will perform a detailed options and feasibility analysis on the creation of an independent third-party evaluation/certification program to ensure that clear and objective information on the quality of new technologies is available by January 31, 2017.
  • Project Team 2 – Technology Scan, Screen, and User Support: This Project Team will develop and start executing technology scanning and screening procedures within EPA and its E-Enterprise Partners. The Team will help users make decisions on which equipment they should purchase or pilot for a particular use, and develop data quality tiers. Draft procedures will be available by September 30, 2016.
  • Project Team 3 – Data Interpretation: This Project Team will develop messaging and tools to support the interpretation of monitoring results to ensure that data (especially from continuous and short-term monitors) are properly interpreted and communicated to the public. Guidance and visualization tools will be piloted in spring 2017.
  • Project Team 4 – Data Standards: This Project Team will develop data use types (tiers) and data standards for advanced monitoring technologies to allow numerous and diverse entities to distribute, share, and integrate data. Uniform standards and data use tiers for alternative regulatory, non-regulatory, and private uses will be developed and ready for use in pilot projects in spring 2017.

To participate in the AMT Steering Committee or one or more of the AMT Project Teams, contact ECOS’ Kelly Poole at kpoole [at] ecos.org by June 7, 2016.

Governance

E-Enterprise embraces a new model for collaborative leadership among environmental co-regulators, engaging with all interested and affected parties to achieve positive environmental, human health, and economic outcomes. It builds upon the foundation of the Exchange Network, recognizing the value of a proven communications and data analytics platform for sharing environmental information to foster informed decision-making. The Exchange Network’s joint governance model of Federal, State, Territorial, and Tribal Partners working together has been adopted by E-Enterprise.

On December 1, 2015, the Exchange Network Governance formally became part of E-Enterprise for the Environment. The new Governance consists of the E-Enterprise Leadership Council (EELC), the E-Enterprise Executive Committee, the E-Enterprise and Exchange Network Management Board (MB), and the E-Enterprise and Exchange Network Interoperability and Operations Team (IOT).
