This manual is designed to evaluate the efficiency of ambient air monitoring networks whose primary objective is to document compliance with or progress toward attaining ambient air quality standards. The manual provides methods to evaluate the efficiency of each of six operational areas: Network Plan and Design, Personnel Qualifications, Facilities and Equipment, Sampling and Analysis, Quality Assurance, and Data Utilization. A technique is presented for the overall integrated evaluation of the operational areas. A final section provides methods to evaluate the efficiency of budgetary allocations.
