Abstract The State Review Framework (SRF) is a program designed to ensure EPA conducts oversight of state and EPA direct implementation compliance and enforcement programs in a nationally consistent and efficient manner. Reviews look at twelve program elements covering data (completeness, timeliness, and quality); inspections (coverage and quality); identification of violations; enforcement actions (appropriateness and timeliness); and penalties (calculation, assessment, and collection). Reviews are conducted in three phases: analyzing information from the national data systems; reviewing a limited set of state files; and development of findings and recommendations. Considerable consultation is built into the process to ensure EPA and the state understand the causes of issues, and to seek agreement on identifying the actions needed to address problems.
