Industrial Economics, Inc. (IEc), under contract to Resolve and EPA, was commissioned to independently assess the responses provided by volunteer standards, certifiers, and ecolabel programs to meeting EPA’s pilot criteria for federal procurement. The assessment criteria were based on the draft Framework for Assessing Environmental Performance Standards and Ecolabels for Federal Procurement, and further developed and refined by the three product category panels (furniture, flooring, and paints & coatings) and Governance Committee, groups facilitated by Resolve in 2015 and 2016. The assessment took place between June and August, 2016.
