Transparency, Access, and Targeting
A common theme across government these days is doing more with less. As resources drop, it becomes more difficult to ensure compliance with environmental laws. Improving our strategies for finding the worst problems and arming the public with information is critical to enforcement program performance. This session will explore how transparency can be a compliance assurance tool, will highlight some technology changes that will make it easier to analyze data, and will highlight some examples where data are being integrated to compare environmental problems to violations of the law.
