State and Federal environmental agencies are collaborating on an initiative called E-Enterprise for the Environment (E-Enterprise) that will recast the business model of environmental protection in the United States. E-Enterprise will improve environmental outcomes and dramatically enhance service to the regulated community and the public by maximizing the use of advanced monitoring and information technologies, optimizing operations, and increasing transparency.
The E-Enterprise Leadership Council (EELC) is launching an effort to develop a technical architecture for E-Enterprise that will ensure interoperability and reduce redundancies between co-regulator data systems, accommodate single sign-on for the regulated community, and design portals for reporting and accessing environmental information. In close cooperation with the EELC, the Exchange Network Leadership Council (ENLC) is looking for volunteers to serve on the E-Enterprise Architecture and Services Integrated Project Team (IPT). Co-Chaired by EPA’s Robin Gonzalez and New Mexico Environment Department’s Mary Montoya, the IPT will provide input into the fundamental technical specifications for E-Enterprise, including:
- E-Enterprise Solutions Architecture
- Concept of Operations for Federated Identity Management
- Concept of Operations for the E-Enterprise Portal, and
- E-Enterprise Services Portfolio and Implementation Strategy
The ENLC aims to assemble a diverse group that includes members with skills in fields such as business process management, environmental program management, enterprise architecture, and Information Technology security. The Draft Charter, includes additional information about the IPT’s proposed work, schedule, and operations.
If you would like to volunteer to participate in this IPT, please send a very brief statement of interest along with a brief description of your professional experience and skills to EN Coordinator Kurt Rakouskas at kurt [at] exchangenetwork.net by June 20, 2014. Also, please share this information with others that may be interested in participating in the IPT.
