Abstract: The State Review Framework is an oversight tool designed to assess state performance in enforcement and compliance assurance. The Framework’s goal is to evaluate state performance by examining existing data to provide a consistent level of oversight and develop a uniform mechanism by which EPA Regions, working collaboratively with their states, can ensure that state environmental agencies are consistently implementing the national compliance and enforcement program in order to meet agreed-upon goals. Furthermore, the Framework is designed to foster dialogue on enforcement and compliance performance between the states that will enhance relationships and increase feedback, which will in turn lead to consistent program management and improved environmental results. The Framework is described in the April 26, 2005 Federal Register Notice (79 FR 21408). This request will allow OECA to collect information from enforcement and compliance files reviewed during routine on-site visits of state or local agency offices that will assist in the evaluation of the State Review Framework implementation from FY 2017 to the end of FY 2019. It will allow also EPA to make inquiries to assess the State Review Framework process, including the consistency achieved among the EPA Regions and states, the resources required to conduct the reviews, and the overall effectiveness of the program. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: States, localities, and territories. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Required as part of program authorization under the Clean Water, Clean Air, and Resource Conservation and Recovery Acts. Estimated number of respondents: 54 (total). VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:10 Feb 22, 2017 Jkt 241001 Frequency of response: Once every five years. Total estimated burden: 2,765 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b) Total estimated cost: $108,649 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: There is a decrease of 2,862 hours (per year) in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease reflects full implementation of efficiencies instituted just prior to the submittal of the currently approved ICR in addition to continued experience on the part of respondents with the review process. Also, adjustments were made to the estimates because several alternative respondents were consulted to who had completed a more recent review.
