THe National Performance Audit Program (NPAP) is one of the major components in the quality assurance of the Nation's air monitoring program. This paper will explore some of the forces behind these changes as well as the results which include expansion of the NPAP to cover not only all the criteria pollutants, but also volatile organic compounds and carbonyls, new audit equipment design, more audit equipment, more sites audited, and changes in the audit site selection process. The paper will include a review of the audit equipment used in the program, an examination, pollutant by pollutant, of the number of audits performed over the last 5 years, and other enhancements of the expanded NPAP.
