Why are we here

Why are we here?

  • Vision for the Future

    • Better process and tools to build the NEI

    • Develop collaborative approach to building the NEI

  • How does the agenda tie to vision

    • Reengineering the future of the NEI

    • Learn from the current process and tools (2002)

    • Advance proposal for 2005

    • Get your input on vision for the future (Reengineering and brainstorming)

  • Challenges of the Current Process

  • What is Reengineering?

  • Why Reengineer?

  • Goal for the Project

  • Project Schedule

  • Project Information


Current nei process

Current NEI Process

  • EPA creates a preliminary inventory for comment and review

  • Data are submitted by State, Local and Tribal agencies using CDX

  • EPA processes the data and creates a draft NEI

  • State, Local and Tribal agencies review and comment on the draft NEI

  • EPA resolves issues and incorporates comments

  • EPA releases the final NEI

Challenges of the current process

Challenges of the Current Process

  • It’s a complex process

    • Accepts multiple file types

    • Relies on multiple data sources: whose data is correct?

    • Lacks a standard for review and comment

    • Requires too much time to format data and process corrections


Challenges of the current process cont d

Challenges of the Current Process (cont’d)

  • Start from scratch each cycle

  • Takes three years to create an emissions inventory

  • Limited transparency

  • Inconsistent/limited access to NEI data


What is reengineering

What is Reengineering?

Business Process Reengineering

  • Review current business processes and data systems

  • Identify areas of change

  • Implement fundamental improvements for all stakeholders involved in the NEI process

    • Make the process more efficient

    • Leverage technology


Why reengineer

Why Reengineer?

  • To address external critiques of emissions inventories

    • National Academy of Sciences report

    • Clean Air Act Advisory Committee report

    • NARSTO’s Emission Inventory Assessment

  • To address internal critiques of emissions inventories – EPA, S/L/T, RPOs

  • To provide better quality and more timely data


Why reengineer cont d

Why Reengineer? (cont’d)

  • To take advantage of new technology

  • To build transparency into the process

  • To provide enhanced access to the data

  • To ensure the NEI provides value to the entire EI community as the premier emissions inventory

  • To incorporate lessons learned


Goal of the reengineering project

Goal of the Reengineering Project

Build a more accurate emissions inventory by creating an efficient and transparent process


Achieving the goal the emissions inventory system eis

Achieving the Goal:The Emissions Inventory System (EIS)

  • Enhanced quality assurance as part of the submission process

  • Streamlined data reporting requirements

  • Consistent file transmission method

  • Timely on-line access to draft inventory data

  • Standard review and comment method

  • Improved access to data
