New GPRA Measures for FY 2010

 

The new GPRA measures for FY 2010 are set forth below.  (The Superfund GPRA measures remain unchanged from the last cycle.)  These new measures sort amounts of environmental benefits achieved from EPA’s enforcement cases and entities that change behavior resulting in direct or preventative benefits (from enforcement, compliance incentive, compliance monitoring, and compliance assistance activities) into three categories:  Air, Water, and Land:

 

  • Measure 400 - Reduce, treat, or eliminate air pollutants through concluded enforcement actions.
  • Measure 402 - Reduce, treat, or eliminate water pollutants through concluded enforcement actions
  • Measure 401 - Total number of regulated entities that change behavior resulting in direct environmental benefits or the prevention of pollution into the environment for air as a result of EPA enforcement and compliance actions.
  • Measure 403 - Total number of regulated entities that change behavior resulting in direct environmental benefits or the prevention of pollution into the environment for water as a result of EPA enforcement and compliance actions.
  • Measure 406 - Total number of regulated entities that change behavior resulting in direct environmental benefits or the prevention of pollution into the environment for land as a result of EPA enforcement and compliance actions.
  • Measure 404 - Reduce, treat, or eliminate toxics and pesticides through concluded enforcement actions.
  • Measure 405 - Reduce, treat, or eliminate hazardous waste through concluded enforcement actions.

 

Data Entry:  The changes in the GPRA measures do not result in any changes to entry of environmental benefit data to ICIS.

 

The “entities changing behavior” data is entered into three different ICIS modules: enforcement, compliance monitoring and compliance assistance.  The only change to data entry involves the CA module where the complying action fields have been changed to accommodate the new GPRA measures.  Guidance on entering this data to the CA module is to be issued by CASPD shortly (See #22, below).

 

Data Retrieval:  Two new reports will shortly be posted in ICIS for retrieving the new GPRA data.
