Contents Notes This testimony discusses GAO's recent assessment of the National Environmental Performance Partnership System. The system was established by a May 1995 agreement between the Environmental Protection Agency and the states as a new framework for improving their working relationship, for improving the effectiveness of the states' environmental programs. Under the program, a state and EPA may enter into an agreement that identifies the state's environmental goals and priorities and how both the agency and state officials are to address them. The two sides may also agree on a Performance Partnership Grant, which is intended to allow the state greater flexibility in targeting limited resources to meet its most pressing needs. GAO (1) identifies the status of grants and agreements made under the system between EPA and participating states, (2) examines the progress that EPA and the states have made in developing results-oriented performance measures to be incorporated into system agreements and grants to the states, (3) examines how EPA oversight may or may not have been changing in states that were participating in the system, and (4) discusses the extent to which the use of these performance partnership agreements and grants had achieved the benefits envisioned for the states and the public.
