the state epa shared vision
The State/EPA Shared Vision

The States and EPA are committed to a partnership to build locally and nationally accessible, cohesive and coherent environmental information systems that will ensure that both the public and regulators have access to the information needed to document environmental performance, understand environmental conditions, and make sound decisions that ensure environmental protection. (March 1998)

the network
The Network
  • Is standards-based
    • technical and data
  • Leverages State and EPA investments
  • Provides flexibility

“The core of the Network is not technology. . .it is a commitment to change the way data is exchanged.”

states and epa have created a blueprint that
States and EPA have created a Blueprint that
  • Refines the network vision
  • Describes its components
  • Identifies
    • technical issues and options
    • critical policy and political issues
  • Describes specific, visible benefits the network will produce as it is implemented
network principles implemented through

Network Administration

Registration, process support, communication

Technical Infrastructure

Uses standard Internet tools

Exchange

Network

Components

Data Exchange Templates

Common way to package shared data

Data Standards

Common way to define shared terms

Trading PartnerAgreement

How information flows between partners

Member Infrastructure

Capacity to participate

Network Principles Implemented through
network is based on four principles
Network is Based on Four Principles
  • Stewardship of specific data established by mutual agreement between two or more trading partners
  • Stewards are responsible for the quality and availability of their data
  • Network members are responsible and accountable for ensuring the integrity and currency of those copies
  • Network members agree to use the network technology standards
network benefits
Network Benefits
  • Delivers reliable, standardized and consistent data to the public, government officials, industry, environmental groups and others
  • Uses a data-centric approach focused on data and data quality
  • Reduces reporting burden
  • Enhances potential for data integration
  • Gives agency more control over its own data
current work three essential elements
Current Work: Three Essential Elements
  • Build States’ capacity to construct a Network node and to participate in Network data exchanges
  • Create the infrastructure to support the Exchange
  • Build EPA’s capacity to construct a Network node (Central Data Exchange) and to participate in Network data exchanges
