E-Enterprise for the Environment

Shared Governance

E-Enterprise for the Environment operates under a governance structure in which both strategic and day-to-day duties and responsibilities are shared among EPA, state, and tribal partners. This model ensures strong oversight and accountability of E-enterprise related projects and decisions.

Leadership and Oversight

The E-Enterprise Leadership Council (EELC) (see below) brings together state and tribal environmental agency directors and senior leaders, as well as senior-level political appointees and career employees of EPA, to provide overall leadership, direction, and oversight for E-Enterprise.

Management and Operations

E-Enterprise projects and functions are directly overseen by the E-Enterprise and Exchange Network Management Board (MB) and the Interoperability and Operations Team (IOT). These bodies consist of career employees from EPA as well as state, and tribal environmental agencies, and meet on a frequent basis to track and support E-Enterprise projects and ensure that all technical systems operate effectively.
