The purpose and objectives of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Automated Data Processing (ADP) planning activities are to obtain the most cost-effective computing/telecommunications resources to meet EPA's computing requirements for the 1981 through 1990 time period. Volumes I and II of this report present workloads for telecommunications traffic in support of missions and ADP activity for each geographic location in EPA. Current and projected workload is defined for ADP users in terms of average number of characters transmitted per month to and from Washington Computer Center (WCC) and National Computer Center (NCC) computing facilities. The purpose of this volume is to provide the detailed information from which the first two volumes were generated. This detailed information is presented in the following sections. Section 2: a detailed description of the study methodology, including the methods used for long term workload projections; Section 3: a detailed presentation and tables of all components of the current baseline telecommunications workload; Section 4: a detailed presentation and tables for all components of projected telecommunications workload for each alternative future scenario.
