  4. 4. Mr Ž S UNITED STATES ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY MWI ~~~~~WASHINGTON, 0.C. 20460 MAY I 6 2003 OFFICE OF ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION Christopher C. Homer Competitive Enterprise Institute 1001 Coniiecticut Avenue, NW, Suite 1250 Washington, D.C. 20036 Re: Information Quality Guidelines Request for COrrection #7428 Dear Mr. Homer: The purpose of this letter is to respond to your February 10, 2003, request to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Guidelines for Ensuring and Maximizing the Quality, Objectivity, Uti Lity', and Integrity of Information Disseminated by the Environmental Protection Agency UInformration Quality Guidelinies) (IQG RFC #7428). You requested that EPA cease dissemination of the U.S. Climate Action Report 2002. This letter also responds to your June 4, 2002, letter requesting that EPA cease dissemination of the Report. The u~S. Climate Action Report 2002 is the U.S. Third National Communication that was prepared and submitted by the'United States pursuant to its obligations under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Since the UNIFCCC was ratified by the U.S. in 1992, the State Departmient has been responsible for developing and submitting each of the U.S. national communications underthe UNFCCC (i.e., in 1994, 1997, and 2002). In 2002, as in previous years, the State Department convened an interagency team to draft the document. This team included staff from the Office of Management and Budget, Council on Environmental Quality, Environmental Protection Agency, the Departments of State, Energy, Interior, Commerce, Defense, and Transportation, the US Global Change Research Program, U.S. Agency furlInternational Developmeflt, and other federal agencies. The document was submitted by the State Departmnent to the UNFCCC Secretariat on May 28, 2002. EPA subsequently made the document available op its Web site because 'of its advanced web hosting capability, which mnay have been interpreted as an indication that this was an EPA report. The State Department has-the responsibility within the U.S. Government for developing and distributing the document to the UNFCCC Secretariat and to other Parties to the Convention. The document clearly states (oin the inside cover page) that the Climate Action Report is a U.S. State Department publication. Therefore, EPA has determined that it is not the appropriate agency to consider Information Quality Guidelines requests for correction relative to the Climate Action Report. The EPA Information Quality Guidelines apply to information EPA disseminates to the public Address (URL) htt:Iiwwwe.p&gOV Intemnet R~ooid/ecoibi *Prnted withVegetable Basd ikonRecyde paper Minlim.m Oil 30% Poscn4n1erl.'
  5. 5. viewpoint or to formulate or that is prepared by the Agency to support or represent an EPA Furthermore, the EPA support a regulation, guidance or other Agency decision or position. prepared or subrmtted by an Information Quality Guidelines apply if EPA distributes information or agrees with it; if EPA outside party in a manner that reasonably suggests that EPA endorses EPA's viewpoint; or if indicates in its distribution that the information supports Or represents to, formulate or support a EPA in its distribution proposes to use or uses the information EPA hosts regulation. guidance, policy, or other Agency decision or positioti. In this instance, Department~in~providing the~Climnate Action Report on its Web site solely to assist the State drafting effort for the public access to the Report. While EPA did participate in the~interagency viewpoint or otherwise adopting or document, EPA is not using it to support or represent an EPA term endorsing it. Accordingly, EPA is not "disseminating" information in the document, as that the correction process under the is used in the EPA Information Quality Guidelines. Because EPA Information Quality Guidelines is limited to requests for Correction of infotmation and reconsideration disseminated by EPA, EPA Information Quality Guidelines correction processes do not apply to the information in the Climate Action Report, as described in your request. to the StateDepartment in view of these considerations, we have forwarded your request for their information, and we suggest that you contact the State Department if you wish to pursue prominently that the US. this matter. EPA has made several changes to its Web site to state Climate Action Report 2002 is a State Department publication. described in your request If you are dissatisfied with EPA's decision that the information is not covered by the EPA Information Quality Guidelines, you may submit a Request for submitted within 90 days of the Reconsideration (RER). EPA recommends that this request be Information Quality date on this letter. To do so~ send a written request to the Agency's Guidelines Processing Staff via mail (Information Quality Guidelines Staff, Mail Code 28220T, electromicmail U.S. EPA, 1200 Peninsylvania Ave., NW Washington, D.C., 20460), (quality.guidelines ~epa.gov) or fax.(202 566-0255.). The RFR should reference the request in the first sentence/first number assigned to the original request for correction (identified paragraph of this response). Additional information that should be included in the request is listed on Information Quality Guidelines Web site (tn/wWCtEvOiOaiVudlns) Sincerely, Kimberly T. Nelson A~sistanlt Administrator and Chief Information Officer Department cc: Dan Reifsnyder, Director, Office of Global Change, U.S. State Jeffrey R.
