The EPA Information Systems Inventory (ISI) is maintained on an IBM PC which currently holds over 500 records. The ISI, written in dBase III, was developed to enhance the Agency's ability to track major information systems, facilitate sharing of information across media and program boundaries and improve the Agency's oversight of information systems development. For each system in the Inventory the following information is included: system identification, descriptors of database content, and administrative data about access, and legal authorities. Report format options are highly selective by searching and printing ISI data fields and accessing dBase III provides additional capabilities to produce individualized reports as needed. The ISI is available in the EPA Headquarters library, EPA Regional offices and laboratories and is managed by the Information Management and Services Division within OIRM...Software Description: The program is written in dBase III for implementation on an IBM-PC, AT, XT or compatible machines using the DOS operating system.
