Abstract EPA uses the State Review Framework (SRF) for nationally consistent and efficient oversight of state compliance and enforcement programs. Reviews look at 12 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). There are three phases in the review: analyze information from the national data systems; review a limited set of state files; and develop findings and recommendations. EPA and the state consult extensively during the review, to understand what is causing issues and to seek agreement on what actions are needed to address them. This report summarizes findings from the review and planned actions to facilitate program improvements. It is designed to provide factual information and does not make any determinations of program adequacy. EPA also uses information from SRF reports to draw a national picture of enforcement and compliance, and to identify any issues that require a national response.
