Data and Results Basic Information
Overall program objectives and long-term goals for the National Enforcement and Compliance Assurance Program are outlined in the EPA's Strategic Plan. The Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) requires the Agency to develop a strategic plan, and update it every three years.
The Enforcement and Compliance Assurance Program's goals and objectives are contained in Goal 5 - Enforcing Environmental Laws of the Strategic Plan.
The National Program Manager's (NPM) Guidance sets forth the national priority and core program activities for the enforcement and compliance assurance program. The NPM Guidance is the basis for developing annual agreements between the national program and each regional office, identifying overall program direction, work plans, specific activities, and expected results that support longer-term goals and objectives.
EPA operates and maintains several databases where federal and state enforcement and compliance activities and outcomes can be tracked and reported. The systems support the national Enforcement and Compliance program's reporting of results and measures established in the Strategic Plan and NPM Guidance. In addition, these systems support the day-to-day management of the various environmental enforcement and compliance programs.
Data and Results Program Offices
The Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA), works in partnership with EPA regional offices, state governments, tribal governments and other federal agencies to collect and analyze data, develop plans and measure results. OECA's Office of Compliance (OC) is the OECA lead on data, planning and results activities, and OECA's Office of Civil Enforcement and Federal Facilities Enforcement Office are also involved in these activities.
