We initiated this audit based on a Hotline complaint related to the Emergency Management Portal (EMP) equipment tracking module. Our objectives were to determine the extent to which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) implemented the EMP equipment tracking software, what efforts EPA has made to assess functionality and cost effectiveness, and how the EMP equipment module compared to the previous interim system. Since September 11, 2001, EPA's emergency response focus has expanded to better coincide with its new role in homeland security. In May 2002, EPA determined that it needed to create a national equipment tracking system to be better prepared for terrorist acts and nationally significant incidents.
