EPA created the Advanced Measurement Initiative (AMI) to permit the early and inexpensive evaluation of innovative advanced technology and to encourage broad and rapid application in EPA operations. The AMI program focused on improving EPA's technological capabilities and accelerating the evaluation and application of advanced, innovative measurement technology to address important environmental needs. The AMI program provided a mechanism for EPA's Regions and Program offices to work with EPA's office of Research and Development (ORD) as well as Federal agencies, academia, and the private sector to find ways to improve EPA's measurement capabilities. Activities sponsored by the AMI program were structured to transfer and promote the technology and the knowledge gained from the evaluation into broad use both by EPA and by the States and the private sector, which are responsible for a significant amount of environmental monitoring and reporting. While AMI focused on improving EPA's capabilities, the application of the technology engaged the States, private sector, and other stakeholders to coordinate efforts and enhance the monitoring capabilities overall. This document provides an overview of AMI's history, objectives, and accomplishments and a description of the projects that AMI funded, several of which are still ongoing.
