27
Current Initiatives
  • Update the 1998 IHS Open Dump List
  • The list will come from the IHS database
  • EPA is working with IHS for joint access
  • If a dumpsite is not in the IHS database, it will
    not be included on the list, which will be
    reported to Congress
  • Tribes need to contact IHS to get their high
    priority sites into the database
  • Track EPA national tribal performance measures -
    GPRA

28
GPRA
  • Government Performance Results Act
  • This is how EPA tracks progress and reports to
    congress is directly linked with future funding
  • Show a need, then show progress
  • We need your help to develop baseline data
