Subject: [CPEO-MEF] EPA Draft Public Involvement Implementation
The Environmental Protection Agency just released its "Draft
Recommendations for Implementing EPA's Public Involvement Policy."   EPA
appreciates your interest in EPA's public involvement efforts and
invites your comments on the draft Implementation document through March
17, 2002.   Please see 
http://www.epa.gov/stakeholders/frnoticeweb.htm for the draft document
and instructions on submitting comments.

This Implementation document describes a set of internal actions that
will help ensure that EPA's Public Involvement Policy is carried out
across the Agency.   The thrust of the recommendations -- information
sharing, training, and evaluation -- is to share the best public
involvement methods used across EPA, promote their routine use, and
develop a means of measuring the results.  The goal is for excellent
public involvement to become an integral part of EPA's culture, thus
improving the Agency's decisions.

EPA is currently revising its draft Public Involvement Policy 
[ http://www.epa.gov/stakeholders/policy.htm ] and plans to release the
Final Policy, responses to comments, and the revised Implementation
document this Spring.   For more information, please call Patricia
Bonner at 202-260-0599.  To request a mailed copy of the draft
Implementation document, call Loretta Schumacher at 202-260-3096 or
e-mail a request to stakeholders@epa.gov
