Performance Measurement, Reporting and Data Quality
Data drives the effectiveness of the enforcement program. Data are used by HQ and regional management to ensure National Initiative and core programs are meeting their goals. The sessions in the “Federal Data, Quality, Reporting & Performance Measurement “ track of the National v-Meeting will demonstrate how the data from our data systems is used to ensure that enforcement of Federal laws is efficient and effective by ensuring that states and EPA provide appropriate enforcement presence as well as addressing key environmental and noncompliance issues.
EPA and states are taking steps to make more data available and improve data quality and reliability. These changes allow us to use data in new ways to improve existing functions.
Much of this data is also made available to Congress, OMB and the public in numerous ways that drive transparency and accountability. Those tools will be described in the “Transparency, Access and Targeting” track of the national v-Meeting.
