Will EPA Be Promoted To Cabinet Status?

       On February 18, EPA Administrator Carol
       Browner testified before the Senate
       Committee on Governmental Affairs on
elevating the Agency to Cabinet status. "It is time,"
she said, "for a Department on the environment to

     EPA's GLO Program is alive and well and
     gearing up for its llth straight class (see
     below). What does GLO stand for'
Greater Leadership Opportunities. That's
what the program is designed to provide its
graduates, who are primarily female and
minority mid-level employees with
supervisory potential
  Started in 1988, GLO is a year-king
training program with several key
   •  Each participant selects a mentor,
     usually a senior-level Agency
     employee, to give advice and
     support, as needed.
   •  Participants are strongly encouraged to develop networking skills, both
     within and outside the Agency
   •  One of the most exciting opportunities offered by the program is a rotation
     assignment to another program office From this experience, participants can
     acquire a broader understanding of the Agency's functions.
   •  Another popular feature for participants is "shadowing" a member of El'A's
     Senior Executive Service.
   •  Of course, there's homework, too. Participants must read at least three books on
     management, including "Civil Sen'ice 2000." At least two interviews with EPA
     executives are also required
  How do I know so much about GLO?  I am a graduate of Class #9  Along with
27 other members of my class, 1 began my GLO training in November 1991
Region 7 was the host region for our first week of training, which covered
management-oriented subjects, such as effective negotiations and cultural diversity.
We also broke into five "focus groups," each of which had six months to complete a
project involving leadership

"CAMEO:" A Full  Partner
In  Emergency Responses
by Kathy Bishop, OSWER

   Inagine getting a call that there's a chemical spill near
   in elementary school. Think of the questions you'd
   ieed to ask, such as... What chemicals are stored in
that area? What type of safety gear do we need? What
are the weather conditions there?
  In 1988, EPA (through the Chemical Emergency
Preparedness and Prevention Office, or CEPPO) and
the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administra-
tion, Department of Commerce, developed a software
system to answer vital questions about emergencies.
Called CAMEO,  this system helps firefighters, emer-
gency planners and responders, chemical safety manag-
ers, and others to handle chemical accidents.
Specifically, CAMEO contains the following:
— Response information on more than 4,000 chemicals
  commonly handled in the United States.
— Mapping capability to help identify and locate po-
  tential hazards to sensitive populations.
— An air dispersion model that can be used to evaluate
  spill scenarios  and evacuation options for 700 air-
  borne toxic chemicals.
— Information on fire and explosion hazards,
  firefighting techniques, first aid, health effects, and
  spill cleanup procedures.
                                                                 CAMEO has assisted in responding to many chemical
                                                                        accidents, such as this one
  CAMEO is
quickly becom-
ing a major part
of the United
Nations effort to
assist local
worldwide with
chemical pre-
prevention, and
response. Says CEPPO Director Jim Makris, "What
started out as a modest effort to help one U.S. city pro-
tect itself from  emergencies has now become the most
significant system of its type anywhere."
  Recently, EPA and NOAA jointly sponsored the third
annual CAMEO workshop in Chicago. More than 600
CAMEO users attended, including fire chiefs from major
metropolitan cities and hazardous materials experts
from companies such as Kodak and Dow Chemical.

which was introduced by Senator Glenn and
passed by the full Senate in 1991.
  Senator Bill  Roth (R-DE), the Committee's
Ranking Minority Member, also spoke of the
need to elevate EPA, but  said "the issue for us is
not whether to  elevate EPA, but how." On Feb-
ruary 17, Senator Roth introduced S.380, which
he described as a "clean bill" that would create a
"Department of Environmental Protection."
  Administrator Browner told the Committee
that the White House is discussing how best to
reassign the responsibilities of the Council on
Environmental Quality (which President Clinton
has proposed to abolish).
  As EPA InSiglit went to press, no further
hearings had been scheduled in either the House
or the Senate.

Begins  With
Each Of Us

        "e hear a lot about
         Quality Action
         Teams. But quality
improvement begins with the
empowerment of individual
employees. Each of us brings
a unique, first-hand
perspective to the work we do.
Here in Region 10, Debbie
Larsen demonstrated this
point beautifully...
  As a Contracting Officer for
Superfund, Debbie found it
cumbersome to work with the
nine-part Procurement
Request Form (this form is
used to purchase products or
services under $25,000).
Information had to be typed
manually on these forms, so
any error on one copy
automatically became  nine
errors! When Debbie
consulted with her customers,
she found out that eight  of the
nine copies were rarely, if
ever, used.  "So," Debbie asked herself, "if no one needs
these copies, why produce them?"
   She then worked with Paul Steele in our Comptroller
Branch, who taught her how to use Office Forms
Facilitator, a software  program for preparing purchasing
forms. Debbie then developed program guidance for her
customers and trained them on how to use the new
computerized purchase form.
  The customers were delighted.  Much of the
information required on  purchase forms could now be
"saved"  in a computer and uploaded, when needed, with
a single key stroke.  The  processing time for completing
purchase forms was cut by two-thirds. Debbie's
achievement is also a good example of pollution
prevention and paper reduction.
  Region 10 is looking for new ways to improve its
contracting operations. If you have any success stories in
this area, please share them with D. J. Lovelady, Lead
Contracting Officer, 206-553-1770.
                                                                             J "Russ" Pekar
   :was born with cataracts in both eyes. The
   world appeared as though I were looking
   through a window covered with oil. Form
and color were barely perceptible.
  In 1949, my family emigrated to the United
States from the Ukraine. At first, my teachers
thought I was retarded because of my poor eyesight
and because I didn't speak English at the time. But I
did fairly well at a school for the blind and then later in high school.
  At the University of Pennsylvania, however, the chemistry and physics
classes gave me trouble. I couldn't see the blackboard. So I split a pair of
mini-binoculars and mounted them on a surgical headband. I looked like a
" cyclops," but at least I could see better.
  In 1976,1 designed a new device that was less obtrusive but equally
effective.  It's a small flat box which runs across the top of the frame of a pair
of glasses. To get a magnified view, the user need only tilt his/her head—
similar to wearing trifocals. From concept to reality, the device took ten
years to get on the market. Now I run a small company which manufac-
tures and sells them.
  In 1986, due to a sight-threatening disease (narrow angle glaucoma), I had
eye surgery for the first time. Fortunately, the operation was successful and
I have (with glasses) 20/40 vision.
  At present, I'm 53 years old, have a Ph.D. in linguistics, and am a full-time
Program Analyst at the Air and Energy Engineering Research Laboratory in
Research Triangle Park.
  Not giving up hope has helped me and, I hope, others.

 Taking The High Road

 To Environmental Awareness

a         April 12, four EPA employees will begin a 650-mile,
        3re-Earth Day bike tour from EPA Headquarters to
        Cookeville, Tennessee.  Ted Coopwood, Greg
 Marshall, and Brian Nester from the Office of Water, and Jim
 Lazorchak, EMSL/Cincinnati, are gearing up for this first-time
 event. Along the way, the foursome plans to stop in cities like
 Charlottesville, Virginia, and Knoxville, Tennessee, to promote
 environmental awareness. How?  By talking with students
 about their responsibilities for protecting the earth's resources.
   At the end of the ride, on April 17, Ted, Greg, Brian, and Jim
 will speak at an environmental fair. Expected to attend are high
 school students, local county officials, environmental groups,
 community leaders, corporate sponsors, and local citizens. The
 fair is being sponsored by, among others, the Tennessee Tech-
 nological University.
   The four employees are also trying to raise money  for the
 Putnam County (TN) Clean Commission. This Commission is
 dedicated to preserving and restoring environmental resources
 through strong volunteer and environmental awareness pro-
   Sponsors include Washington Gas, which is organizing a
 "kick-off" event that Administrator Browner will attend, and
 Performance Bicycles, which is providing  the bikers with
 equipment and riding apparel.
   If you have any questions, or if you would like to volunteer some
 time to these worthy causes, please contact Ted (202-260-8327),
 Greg (202-260-7745); Brian (202-260-8317), or Jim (513-533-8114).
