The Exchange Network Leadership Council (ENLC) is looking for individuals that are interested in joining a new Integrated Project Team (IPT) on sharing core information on regulated facilities. Agencies often collect and store data on regulated facilities in highly fragmented ways. This practice leads to duplicative reporting processes and discrepancies that complicate accurate data correlation across programs and agencies.
The Exchange Network and E-Enterprise for the Environment support a more unified approach to environmental regulation. This IPT will scope out options for better integrating and sharing master facility record information across programs and environmental agencies. The IPT will develop an understanding of current EPA, State, and Tribal efforts to integrate facility data, identify a shared set of goals for supporting more comprehensive facility integration, and identify and test options for achieving those shared goals.
More information on the Facility Data Integration IPT’s anticipated work and structure is available in the Final Draft Charter available here.
The ENLC is seeking individuals with expertise in collecting, managing, and using core facility information to serve on the IPT. If you would like to volunteer to participate, please prepare a very brief statement of interest along with a brief characterization of the level of facility data integration in your agency or program. This will help the ENLC assemble a diverse team that includes representatives with a wide array of perspectives. Please email your response to Kurt Rakouskas at kurt [at] exchangenetwork.net no later than June 19, 2015.
