When the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee confirmed Granta Nakayama as Assistant Administrator of EPA’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA), it was unclear what his agenda might include. Few predicted, then, that EPA’s top enforcement official would reinvigorate the EPA tip website as a means for prompting compliance.
EPA’s website
EPA's old web-based tool for reporting tips and complaints had been hard to find and use. Nakayama was familiar with a federal agency tip website being used to greater effect – an acquaintance he picked up while working with the Consumer Product Safety Commission as a private sector attorney prior to joining EPA in 2005. When Nakayama took over, he simply borrowed the commission’s strategy. As one of Nakayama’s first initiatives, OECA launched
the new, redesigned and more user-friendly site to facilitate reporting environmental violations. To report a violation, users are asked to complete basic information fields. EPA estimated that the form would take up to 30 minutes to complete.
