EPA’s Execution of Its Fiscal Year 2007 New Budget Authority for the Enforcement and Compliance Assurance Program in the Regional Offices

This GAO Report (GAO-08-1109R) to Dianne Feinstein, Chair, House Subcommittee on Interior, Environment and Related Agencies discusses budget allocation between the various EPA Regions finding:

"In summary, we found that EPA’s fiscal year 2007 operating plan allocated to the regional offices approximately 72 percent ($184 million) of its fiscal year 2007 new budget authority associated with the four enforcement and compliance assurance program/projects that we reviewed. We found only small differences between these amounts and the amounts reported as obligated in the regional offices. Specifically, EPA reported as obligated in its regional offices about $179 million, or 2.6 percent less than the amounts allocated in the operating plan."
