The National Performance Audit Program (NPAP) is one of the major components in the quality assurance of the nation's air monitoring program. The nation's ambient air monitoring program contains approximately 5000 monitors collecting data for the six pollutants for which national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) have been designated. On January 1, 1998 EPA's ORD transferred the NPAP to the Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS). The future of this important performance evaluation program is discussed.
